Ten random things: March 16

Ten books about or set in Korea:

  1. Linda Sue Park, A Single Shard
  2. Gordon Cucullu, Separated at Birth: How North Korea Became the Evil Twin
  3. Martin Russ, Breakout: The Chosin Reservoir Campaign, Korea 1950
  4. Bradley K. Martin, Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader: North Korea and the Kim Dynasty
  5. Roy Edgar Appleman, East of Chosin: Entrapment and Breakout in Korea, 1950
  6. Sook Nyul Choi, Year of Impossible Goodbyes
  7. Kang Chol-Hwan and Pierre Rigoulot, The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag
  8. Victor D. Cha and David C. Kang, Nuclear North Korea: A Debate on Engagement Strategies
  9. James Brady, The Coldest War: A Memoir of Korea
  10. Allan R. Millett, Their War for Korea: American, Asian, and European Combatants and Civilians, 1945-1953

I recently finished A Single Shard, which won the Newbery Medal in 2002. It was pretty good, though a very quick read and somewhat distractingly similar to another recent Newbery winner I recently read, Crispin: The Cross of Lead.
