Ah, the Wind-Up Bird. What a great book. I remember how totally engrossed I was when I was reading it. If you wind up loving it, another book you might like is Number 9 Dream by David Mitchell. I don't know what other Murakami you've read, but Norwegian Wood is my all-time favorite, and Dance Dance Dance is great too (but read Wild Sheep Chase first). If you want to read something dark but that is one of the best representations of modern Japan I've ever found, try Out by Natsuo Kirino. And check out books published by Vertical, a small press that specializes in translations of modern Japanese lit.

Hi

Have "come over" from your knitting blog. I love reading as well and it is always a toss up between the two time wise. But my best "find" was a book stand now I can do both at the same time. Most knitting patterns have a plain row [ read purl here ] so you can save the eyes on the knitting for the pattern rows.

Only problem I have had so far is that I ocassionaly have to rip out when I have knitted too far!!

Knit on >^..^< er I mean read on!!
