I am looking for books in Japanese on PBS, but have not been really succesful. I have seen some manga in Japanese, but I am really looking for a novel or something similiar. So if you find/post any books in Japanese, I would love to know.

Hey:] Nicole. Books in Japanese aren't going to come cheap. It's usually impossible to find any on here besides comics (which are kind of rare also).  I've been able to find Japanese comics for a couple of dollars or even pennies on various sites. But for a book I usually pay about $10 (on English sites). Books can be found on Amazon.jp but the shipping is outrageous. Ex. I bought a set of 19 small books and it was $30 dollars to ship.

I'd just try surfing the web there's various Japanese book stores.
