Reading progress update: I've read 0 out of 159 pages.
Dragondrums - Anne McCaffrey

I'm putting Murakami on hold. I'm not DNFing it because it was interesting. It was just not what I felt like reading at the moment. So I'm going to finish this, since it's the last in this series and also the last in this Harper Hall volume I got. Plus, I love Pern, so maybe this will break my ever-increasing slump.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles - Haruki Murakami

Everyone just keeps meeting this man and telling them their life stories within 5 minutes of knowing him.

 

 

That seems to be the extent of the plot thus far.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles - Haruki Murakami

If this book was based today instead of the 80s, it would make one hell of a blog. Toru would have a million followers wanting to know what batshit event happened in his life that day.

 

Day 19: wife lost her shit and sat at the kitchen table crying because I bought toilet paper with flowers on it. She told me she hated toilet paper with flowers and I should know this and I only think of myself. It's got to be a full moon or something.

 

Day 90: Got crank-called by a sex worker. All day. Like 40 calls. I only answered the first 2. Omg. Did I want her dressed or naked? Wtf? Need to download a caller ID app.

 

Day 120: Met a girl in the neighborhood that talked about murdering someone and "pulling out the dead part". I need to invest in better locks. Maybe a Vivant system or Ring. 

 

Day 192: Cat ran away and wife hired a psychic. I can't even. I was thinking more along the lines of a missing flier. But sure, a psychic is okay, too. Only, she's crazy and talked about a water cleanse on the island of Malta and spoke in riddles. Oh, and she could only say the cat was gone. Thanks so much, weird clairvoyant woman.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles - Haruki Murakami

I am taking a break from young adult books right now. I have been striking out repeatedly with them this month, to the point my eyes want to bleed. So I'm going to read some manga and some contemporary fiction for a while. Maybe that will break my slump. I was feeling myself become revolted at the sight on my current book. Never a good thing.

The Elementals - Francesca Lia Block

So far this is fascinating. The writing is very well done, and I'm finding the story compelling.
