Quote of Haruki Murakami
This quote applies exactly my thinking. It expresses that far from best-seller lists there are wonderful stories of very good authors. Please do not misunderstand. Who like to read highly praised much advertised books is dear to me as well as readers who are looking for small publishers and less read authors. This includes clearly an own opinion to read. This feels authentic especially if not already 10 other reviews appear on other blogs. Therefore it is important to me, books to discuss do not read any or would to read. Every reader has his favorite genre and that is a good think. But we have a large variety of books. Sometimes it can not hurt to devote to something new.
Haruki Murakami was born 1949 in Kyoto. His parents taught japanese literature. Even as a child he was more interested in westerly music and literature. With writing of his own books he started in the age of 29 years. In 1979 he published his first novel. His books have been translated in about 40 languages.
I wish you a wonderful Sunday with a lot of new books!!!
