Poll: August Japanese Classic Tour Participation

In the Northern Hemisphere, at least, it is summer and sunshine may be beckoning us away from the computer. Besides that, it seems many are becoming increasingly busy with Book Blogger Appreciation Week responsibilities and festivities and other online responsibilities. For these reasons, I’m pondering letting The Classics Circuit take a break until late September or October.

I had intended to open sign up this week for the Land of the Rising Sun: Meiji-era Japanese Literature tour. This tour leaves the West, where we have been, and gives us a glimpse of some classic Eastern literature, particularly that of 1868-1920 Japan. It include the classic and prolific novelist Natsume Soseki (of Kusamakura and I Am A Cat fame), poets like Masaoka Shiki, and short story writers like Naoya Shiga and Ryunosuke Akutagawa.

However, if this time of year is bad for you, then I’m happy to postpone the tour until a different time of the year, when more might be able to join in. Please take the one question survey below. If people seem interested, we’ll go ahead with the sign up later this week (probably Wednesday). If not, we’ll let The Classics Circuit have a little summer break.

(Note that after you answer the question, the survey asks for your name and email. This is a function of the survey plugin, and I do not know how to turn it off. Please do not fell any obligation to add your name to your answer; it does not matter to me!)
