Sputnik Sweetheart

Comments

I’ve managed to get this far in my life without reading any Murakami, despite seemingly everyone I know being in love with him. So Alice’s recommendation a couple days ago was merely the proverbial last straw, and I’ve picked up Sputnik Sweetheart… You know how sometimes, before you even open a book, and you’re holding it in your hand and its heft and color and texture and smell and energy just tells you it’ll be wonderful?

Okay, I admit it, I do sometimes judge a book by its cover. But this is a beautiful one (and set in Futura, no less!). So please don’t be too harsh.

Oh, I cannot wait to sink my teeth into this!


Installed Brad Choate’s OnThisDay plugin (thanks, cygnoir!), although for now the “also on this day” sidebar only shows up on individual entries. Also, since I’ve not exactly been a regular-as-clockwork poster, not every day has them. Anyways, I’ve had fun revisiting the old me, so even if no-one else looks, it’s been worth it.


Finally, I think… I think my last entry was more about terror (also see Breakfast in Oyama) than optimism, but you, lovely readers, have managed to make me feel better about everything. Thank you so much.
