Good Sunday to you. I cannot believe it is almost the end of the year. I hope to get a post up revisiting my favorite books by the 31st. We’ll see if that happens.
I have a confession to make. I tried reading Murakami’s 1Q84, I gave it over 100 pages, the writing is wonderful, the story strange and odd, but I found I could not connect with the characters. They seemed removed, distant, and I just couldn’t give myself over to the book. I had to set it aside.
This is sad. Maybe it’s the timing. Maybe the length felt daunting. There are so many of my favorite bloggers who love Murakami and I want to love him too. If you have a suggestion for another of his books I should try please leave a comment.
Today I am making Dorrie Greenspan’s Swedish Visiting Cake to bring to a friend’s house on Monday and then plan on getting back to reading Bohemian Girl by Terese Svoboda. I am loving it. How about you, what are you reading today?
