    I’ve been hearing from all sides that Bungaku Shoujo is really good – I’ve got to get it… a job before that – shipments are expensive.
    I’ve heard a little about Kemono no Souja…

    But these are weekly rankings – maybe can we get something like monthly for a better picture? 🙂

    Ah. I really want to read Bungaku Shoujo. I really love “Short Story” Series like Shinigami no Ballad or Kino no tabi…

      Same. lol

      Kino no Tabi and Ballad of a Shinigami are my two favorite light novel series’. 🙂

        I’ve been trying to find Kino No Tabi online in English forever now. I was wondering if you can tell me read to them…?

        Baka-Tsuki has a translation going on, however, its pretty slow. TokyoPop hasn’t been able to release any further volumes of the series because of a licensing issue that has plagued them over the past few years.

    Yeah, I checked those, Baka-Tsuki does not have Vol. 1 though. I do want to buy it though, but Tokyo Pop takes forever it seems.
    Thank you though. I appreciate your help.
    I may be able to read it raw if the Kanji has Ofurigana next to it.

This marks the english speaking world's first dedicated light novel blog, bringing you news and views from the english perspective on light novels. We are more than just a blog about light novels though, we also stand in awe of the many other literary works crossing over to the West from Japan. So expect to also see articles that dabble from time to time in Cell Phone Novels and Japanese Sci-Fi works, to mention a few.

So come all you light novel enthusiasts! Come one and all! We may be a niche, and may represent one of the smallest markets in these economically troubled times, but we are also one of the most dedicated! So let us come together and support the industry we love and hold so dearly!
