Friday Things: 1/23/2015

So I’m not very good at posting Things every week. I’m not sure whether I want to make myself be better about it or give up the venture entirely. We’ll see what happens. This week, anyway, you’re in luck! It appears that...

2015 Book #2: The Strange Library

What a (very tiny) book! Haruki Murakami‘s book release dates are the only ones to which I pay close attention. If there’s a new Murakami book translated into English, chances are I’ve read it. Okay, I have, as I’ve...

2014 Book #32: Sputnik Sweetheart

2014 Book #32: Sputnik Sweetheart

I’m generally a wee bit reluctant to reread books by Haruki Murakami because I don’t always like them as much the second time around. The problem is that I’ve read all of his novels published in English, so I’m kind of out of...

2013 Book #49: Dance Dance Dance

2013 Book #49: Dance Dance Dance

Well, that went quickly. Four books in, what, two weeks? Lots of Haruki Murakami. Hear the Wind Sing, Pinball, 1973, and A Wild Sheep Chase were his first three novels. Then, he wrote Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and Norwegian...

2013 Book #48: A Wild Sheep Chase

2013 Book #48: A Wild Sheep Chase

Three down, one to go. That’s about how I’m feeling now: I’m Murakamied out. But I was right: I liked A Wild Sheep Chase a lot more this time around, though I don’t think it’s for the same reason. Though Hear the Wind...

2013 Book #47: Pinball, 1973

2013 Book #47: Pinball, 1973

Whew! Another book flew by. At this point, the posts you’re seeing are postdated, as I’m reading a bit to fast. I might have hit fifty before November at this rate. Anyway. On to Pinball, 1973, the second of the Rat series, whether you...

2013 Book #46: Hear the Wind Sing

2013 Book #46: Hear the Wind Sing

The end of the year is right around the corner, and, thankfully, so is my annual book quota. Four more to go. I have a feeling I’ll make it, especially with the little project I have planned. A couple posts ago, I said I’d like to be...

Centenary Book Sale Day!

Centenary Book Sale Day!

I look forward to it all year: the Centenary Book Bazaar is by far the best book sale in Shreveport. If you’ve only been to the library’s, you’re missing out! My general rule is $20 and one ginormous bag, but rules are made to be...

2013 Book #38: Coin Locker Babies

2013 Book #38: Coin Locker Babies

Well. Coin Locker Babies is certainly a book. Not exactly my kind of book, but a book. And not a bad one, either. It’s just a little too extreme for me. I’ve been going back and forth about quoting the first paragraph so you’d see...
