100 books!

I started reading Japanese literature after I married, less than 10 years ago, before I read almost only art, aesthetic, philosophy, esoterism essays. The first (Japanese) novel I read was Murakami Haruki's Tokyo Blues and Norwegian Woods and I immediately followed in love with this literature, from that moment, I bought only Japanese writer's books, and I realised yesterday, after a fruitful stop at a second hand bookshop in Milano, I reached 100 books of Japanese literature! I think it a moment to remember and, to celebrate, I shoot this picture. It was not easy to keep all this books standing there ... the tower it was tall 170 cm. like me!
