Asian Writers: D.T. Suzuki, Rumi, Murasaki Shikibu
Would love to read the works of D. T. Suzuki, Tale of Genji (Genji Monogatari) by Murasaki, and Rumi's poems in English.
On the note of Asian writers, I would like to see Pu, Songling's Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio available on Dailylit. There shouldn't be any copyright issues because it was written in the 1700 and translated into English during the 1800.

Thanks for these requests. Are there are other folks who would like to see these works on DailyLit? We usually add works based on the number of requests we receive so we'd love to hear more from the community.

A big yes for the Rumi poetry and Tale of Genji which have been on my must read list for quite some time.

Yes, I would also like to read more by Asian authors.

Another old Asian story that would be good for this is Rashomon (1915). Several different points of view of the same events makes it very interesting to try to decide what actually happened.

Rumi Wisdom by Timothy Freke; 365 Tao by Deng Ming-Dao; Everyday Tao by Deng Ming-Dao....
excellent for a true "daily lit" read since the intention and set-up of each is one reading per day for
rumination, meditation and absorption.

The Book of Five Rings by Miyamato Musashi, Buddhist tracts, haiku's and tankas would be lovely as well as Guanzhong's Romance of the Three Kingdoms or Shou's Records of the Three Kingdoms.
