This is going to be vague, but someone posted a blog about buying some new books that involved Haruki Murakami and some others. One of the other books sounded really interesting and I had planned on checking it out but by the time I got around to searching for it, I couldn’t remember the name of the book or the author. If the person who wrote that blog happens to see this and remind me of the book/author, I would very much appreciate it.
I don’t normally post blogs like this and realize it’s a long shot but hey, why not try. (Do you put a question mark at the end of a rhetorical question?)
And so not to waste everyone else’s time entirely, I thought I’d ask for more book recommendations. I plan on picking a few up over the weekend, or Monday, and am open to input. For a reference point, I enjoy pop-science books. The Ego Tunnel, about our sense of self, Rethinking Positive Thinking, about happiness, and Moral Tribes, about morality and some deficits, are three that stand out. As for fiction, I enjoyed Cathedral by Raymond Carver, Stardust by Neil Gaiman and Like Life by Lorrie Moore, recently. If that helps at all, use that information. If it doesn’t help, just name a few favorites and I’ll look into them.
Thanks, sorry, bye.
