Lost In A Good Book

  • Mood:

Well water, popcorn, and rice balls

I'm disgusted with myself. I've not been reading much lately. Well that's not entirely true. I just the other day read something by ... Dannielle Steele *gasp!!!* I really don't like her books, but when the well is dry you'll... I don't know drink something else I guess. Someone gave me the book, so I read it.

It's the popcorn-iest of popcorn novels. No nutritional value, smells good, tastes ok.

Other than that I've read a book by Haruki Murakami called The Wind-up Bird Chroncles. It was sent to me by a friend in England, who heard I was bemoaning my lack of good reading material. I have to say it was excellent. It's not exactly my style. Had a few too many naughty bits. But the author is truly original. It reminded me of The Time Travellers Wife. Another book I didn't like, but I do respect the authors ability.

I've also been reading some Japanese Manga. I'm completely hooked on Fruits Basket. It's a guilty pleasure. I'm ashamed to go into the bookstore to buy it. What on earth is a 34 year old woman doing buying "comic books". Does it deter me. Until the whole Kyo/Tohru/Yuki thing gets resolved, I shall persevere!

Boy it's been a long time since I've written in this journal.
