Eastlit’s all time list of best read Asian literature has also been updated. Due to popular request, we continue to provide direct links to each piece in our lists.

All of this bets read Asian literature and artwork can be read from the links on this page or just make use of the links in the top menu. Eastlit’s archive can be used for navigation, too. Hopefully it will also give you an opportunity to read some of the less read pieces. After all, we all know well read does not always mean the best!
