This week I read and finished The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami.
It has been a busy weekend. I am making jelly for the first time (or trying to), went on a road trip to Twist, and will be out today with a friend to an art gallery and some food. So now major reading today. I have a lot of books that I want to read and I even read a bit Fifty Shades of Grey. I think I will finish that tomorrow. It’s… amusing. Sometimes annoying, but I can see why it is a bestseller. I plan on reading the whole trilogy so it’ll be on massive post sometime in the future.
I forgot to mention last Sunday Salon that I signed up for the Harry Potter Read Along from September 1st to December 15th, hosted by Lost Generation Reader. I reread Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last month just for fun. It’s one of my favourites, but I may as well reread some of the other books and Tales of Beedle Bard. I won’t reread all seven books because I will be busy with life and other reading challenges, but I will definitely reread the first and last books and a couple in between. This is not the first time I’ve reread the books for the blog either so I will only do a few of the books. Check out the Harry Potter tag. Rereading my posts on that in the past, I will focus the reread on the last book which I never wrote a proper post about, but did make predictions for.
In other news, I don’t think I can read another book for Austen in August. I have been keeping myself too busy with many other things, but I am finishing a long post for Austen Adaptations to finish off the readalong. Watch this space.
I’m off to prepare for my busy day.
What are you doing to move about this last Sunday of August?
I’m curious about The Wind Up Bird Chronicle.. Hope you have a great week…and here’s MY SUNDAY SALON POST
Hi Laurel! I really liked it; it’s very different from most other novels. I hope you have a great week too! Thanks!

I haven’t jumped on the 50 shades bandwagon yet but my daughters have the books for me to steal whenever I am ready.
Hope you have a great week!
Hi Lori! My girlfriends have been putting the pressure on me! I hope you have a great week too!

Oh, I admire you. I haven’t jumped on the 50 Shades of Grey movement, but I did read Hunger Games at the request of my son and LOVED it. I’m not too much into the romantic, sexual kind of books, but I also tend to read a lot. So, if it causes people to read more, enjoy sex a bit more as a side result, well, who am I to say not to?!? LOL! 😉
Hello Lisa! I also loved the Hunger Games. Also, I agree that I am not one to judge what people read and you are right that it does open doors for people, but gotta say, these books are not well written. Ha! Thanks for the comment and have a good week!
