I "threatened" to start this thread a while back when a discussion between coolkayaker1 and myself went waaaaaaay off topic into a couple of works by Haruki Murakami, whose latest was just released last week.
So - me first! Currently:
Murakami's Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and his Years of Pilgrimage
H.G. Wells - War of the Worlds
Joan Didion - After Henry
Looking forward to hearing from others who somehow, miraculously, manage from time to time to set down their ukes long enough to read something.
