Today is Haruki Murakami’s birthday and what better way to celebrate it here than to choose this reading quote from him. Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite authors. I discovered him only last year and I read a total of 5 books from him. I started with his memoir: “What I Talk About When I Talk About Running”.
If you haven’t heard yet, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage will available in English in August 2014. When I read about it last year, I posted this in the Haruki Murakami Fans Goodreads Group. I can imagine that a lot of people are pretty excited about it. Meanwhile, the German translation is already available and you can take a peek of its cover here. I’ve been a follower of Haruki Murakami Stuff: A Murakami Fan Blog for a while now. They’re got interesting stuff about the author himself and books he wrote. I especially love the photos of different book covers from different countries.
Have you read any of Haruki Murakami’s books? Are you looking forward to reading his new book?
