Don’t read many thrillers, so does 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami count?

    When I was 21 I wanted to write like Kafka. But, unfortunately for me, I wrote like a script editor for The Simpsons who’d briefly joined a religious cult and then discovered Foucault. Such is life.

  5. Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps … perhaps … love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.

    I think… if it is true that there are as many minds as there are heads, then there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts.

2 // bookshelf // this is the shame zone of my many bookshelves: I have a terrible habit of starting too many books at once, or buying new books before I’ve finished old ones. So the top shelf here represents all the books on my to-read list. Here are books I’m halfway through, ones I desperately want to reread, books loaned by friends, and recent purchases.

    April Book Photo Challenge: Day 7

    Socially awkward character

    It had been a while since I last read About a Boy, and I had forgotten just how hilarious Will and Marcus are. After taking these photos, I ended up re-reading the book in one sitting, and I’ll probably have to watch the movie later tonight as well…

  10. Why didn’t I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.
