Asia is a wealth of knowledge, but not just for cultural or heritage-oriented things. Literature is one of the oldest loved forms of relaxation in Asia (apart from the furthering of education) and finding a good book to settle down with during the monsoon season, is a must. Great authors can be found all over Asia, they are not restricted to just Korea, so you need to open you mind and prepare to be amazed at the depth of artistic and literary abilities these authors possess.
Here are only ten of the best highlighted by the Tribune. Don't forget to get yourself at least one book; well, maybe two...three and you'll be on a roll. :)
