Manga Challenge!

Not that I need an excuse to read more manga, but who could resist Rhinoa's Manga Challenge? It sounds like a lot of fun. The rules are:

Read at least 6 manga novels in 2009 (cross overs with other challenges are fine and please feel free to read more!).
Sign up at her blog with Mister Linky.
She will put up a post each month with a Mister Linky for us to add our reviews to.
You do not need to set a list of books to read in advance, just fill them in as you go if it's easier.

I love reading manga - my main challenge is finding the time to write reviews, since they are such quick reads. I think I will not make up a list at this point, and just read what appeals to me as I go along.

Thanks for hosting this fun challenge, Rhinoa!

I will list my books on the sidebar as I go along, and then I'll do a wrap-up post at the end of the challenge. It's not too late to join in!


  1. I'm excited about this challenge!! I'm catching up on XXXholic for it!

  2. I love xxxHOLIC!! I've been thinking about rereading them because they're so much fun.

  3. I'm not making a list in advance because I have no idea where to start...I'll be counting on you for recommendations :P

  4. Well, xxxHOLIC to begin with, if you've never read any of those. And lately I've been captivated by Yotsuba&!, and I hope to read more of those for the challenge (except my older daughter keeps stealing them from me!) :-) I'll keep you posted on any new discoveries! That's the fun part about challenges, the way they make you branch out.

  5. I'd like to join but here in Ireland the choice is so limited I don't think I can find anything I want to read! I can't wait to go to Italy and catch up on Nana (sooo behind here....) and see if there's anything new on the market.
    I love classic manga, but they've only been published in Italy for all the nostalgic fans of 80's cartoons, so I couldn't review them :(
    Also they're so expensive here!
    ok I'll stop moaning, maybe I could just join and not review them at all :P

  6. I'm sorry to hear that, Valentina. I know how you feel. I remember when I lived in Italy, books in English were soooo expensive, and my favorite authors were nearly impossible to find. This was before online bookstores - yes, I"m old! And while I could read in Italian, it was so darn much work that it was hard to lose myself in the books the way I can in English. I admire you and Nymeth for reading so much in a language that (I believe) is not your native language. Now I have the opposite issue, of course - books in Italian are expensive/hard to find. I really need to go back one of these days and stock up!

    My library still only has Nana #1 and #2, and with the current budget crunch, I doubt we'll see much new stuff in the recent future.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!
