500 Best Books (Children / YA) Tentative List

I’m writing a book “500 best books originally written in English” for Japanese audience, and I have made a tentative list of children’s books I am considering including in the book. I have lists for fiction books,nonfiction books,and classics separately.

This list is not completed and I would like your input. Some of the book’s audience are beginning readers of English and some are native level, so I need a mix of books that would appeal to these various levels that I believe are enjoyable for the Japanese readers.  Some are entertaining, and some are mind stimulating, and some of them are informative.  The most important thing is that the book gives a Japanese reader a good reading experience. If that experience encourages the reader to pick up another English book, it will be a success.

The following are the criteria I used for the tentative list.  

1)   The reader feels “ I’m glad I have read this book”.

2)   The book has a reasonably wide range of audience.

3)   The book must be reasonably well written.

4)   The book must be still in print and available in Japan.

I’m including some books I personally do not like very much, because I believe there are many Japanese readers who can learn to enjoy English books from them.  Because of the limited number I can list for the book, I decided to chose only one book by each author(for each category).

I separated into several genres, but please keep in mind that some of them are mixture of different genres.

500 Best Books (Nonfiction) Tentative List

I’m writing a book “500 best books originally written in English” for Japanese audience, and I have made a tentative list of nonfiction books I am considering including in the book. I have lists for fiction books, children’s books, and classics separately.

This list is not completed and I would like your input. Some of the book’s audience are beginning readers of English and some are native level, so I need a mix of books that would appeal to these various levels that I believe are enjoyable for the Japanese readers.  Some are entertaining, and some are mind stimulating, and some of them are informative.  The most important thing is that the book gives a Japanese reader a good reading experience. If that experience encourages the reader to pick up another English book, it will be a success.

The following are the criteria I used for the tentative list.  

1)   The reader feels “ I’m glad I have read this book”.

2)   The book has a reasonably wide range of audience.

3)   The book must be reasonably well written.

4)   The book must be still in print and available in Japan.

I’m including some books I personally do not like very much, because I believe there are many Japanese readers who can learn to enjoy English books from them.  Because of the limited number I can list for the book, I decided to chose only one book by each author.

I separated into several genres, but please keep in mind that some of them are mixture of different genres.

500 Best Books (Fiction) Tentative List

I’m writing a book “500 best books originally written in English” for Japanese audience, and I have made a tentative list of fiction books I am considering including in the book. I have lists for nonfiction books, children’s books, and classics separately.

This list is not completed and I would like your input. Some of the book’s audience are beginning readers of English and some are native level, so I need a mix of books that would appeal to these various levels that I believe are enjoyable for the Japanese readers.  Some are entertaining, and some are mind stimulating, and some of them are informative.  The most important thing is that the book gives a Japanese reader a good reading experience. If that experience encourages the reader to pick up another English book, it will be a success.

The following are the criteria I used for the tentative list.  

1)   The reader feels “ I’m glad I have read this book”.

2)   The book has a reasonably wide range of audience.

3)   The book must be reasonably well written.

4)   The book must be still in print and available in Japan.

I’m including some books I personally do not like very much, because I believe there are many Japanese readers who can learn to enjoy English books from them.  Because of the limited number I can list for the book, I decided to chose only one book for one category by each author.I will mention other notable books by the same author when I introduce the book in “500 Best Books”.

I separated into several genres, but please keep in mind that some of them are mixture of different genres.

500 Best Books (Classic) Tentative List

This is a tentative list of “The best Classic books” for my book
“500 best books written in English. 

One of the definitions of “Classics”is “The books which survived the test of time”, but that time itself is hard to define. Therefore, as a matter of convenience, I choose the books which were published before 1960.

Again, this tentative list is made for Japanese audience. I have lists for fiction books, nonfiction
books
,and children’s books separately.

This list is
not completed and I would like your input.

The following are the criteria I used for the tentative list.  

1)   Relatively easy to read.

2)   Enjoyable, fun, or satisfying.

3)   Still in print and available in Japan.

 

クラシックの定義としては「Survive the test of time」が重要な条件ですが、この「time」が何年かを決めるのが悩ましいところです。通常は、第二次世界大戦後の作品がContemporary literature(現代文学)と見なされていますので、便宜上、現代文学ではないものを「クラシック文学」とすることにしました。

知名度が高くても、読みにくい作品など「おすすめ度」が低い作品は外しました。

作品が多い作家では、代表作を1作か2作のみご紹介します。

おすすめ作品には*、特におすすめ作品には**をつけます。

個人的には好みではなくてもクラシックとして価値がある作品は含んでいます。

このリストは、最終候補を選ぶ前の段階のリストです。これから加わる作品もあれば、リストから外れる作品もあります。

ご意見をいただければ、なるべくそれを反映させていただきますが、最終的には私の個人的な決断になりますので、よろしくご了承くださいませ。

推薦された作品、あるいは考慮したけれどもリストには入れなかった作品も下記に載せています。

全部で100冊を選ぶつもりです。

BIGの時代は終わった。ではどうすればいいのか?

今年5月刊行予定の『The End of Big』は、大企業、大政党、といったBIGの時代の終焉を語る本です。

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?lt1=_blank&bc1=FFFFFF&IS2=1&npa=1&bg1=FFFFFF&fc1=000000&lc1=0000FF&t=yofaclja-20&o=1&p=8&l=as4&m=amazon&f=ifr&ref=ss_til&asins=1250021855

インターネットの普及により、世界はフラットになり、新聞やテレビよりも先に素人がニュースを伝えるようになり、大きなメディア、企業、政党といったものが存在しにくくなってきています。BIGの時代が終わり、身動きしやすいSMALLなものが台頭してきているのです。

とある味や音楽が鮮明な記憶を呼び起こすことがある。
というと、必ずと言ってよいほど人はマルセル・プルーストの「失われた時を求めて」の紅茶に浸したマドレーヌのエピソードを口にする。

本書『Pieces of Light』でもプルーストのマドレーヌが出て来る。
プルーストの語り手のように、五感への刺激はフラッシュバルブ記憶(「写真のフラッシュをたいたときのように」鮮明な記憶)を喚起することが多い。
これは、同時多発テロ事件などのように重大な事件や、結婚式のように個人的に重要な出来事でよく起こる記憶である。
強い感情を伴う鮮明な記憶について、私たちは「これほど強い感情を呼び起こすのだから、本当にあったことに違いない」と思う。
だが、記憶とはそんなに信用できるものではないのである。
