    If anyone has read What I talk about when I talk about running why not share your favourite quotes here? I like this one: "Writing novels, to me, is basically a kind of manual labour."

    Hey Fifth (it's ok to call u that right?), I see you're a Japanese culture fan between Murakami and your Princess Mononoke avatar. Loved that movie by the way... have you seen Howl's moving castle or any other Studio Ghibli movies?

    I imagine you'll let me quote other Murakami's books won't you?

    Having recently found Haruki.. I am becoming a vast fan. Doubled with this fact, is that most of his books are available as ebooks.

    As for cats.. I have three of them..Taz, Spaz and Serena. I like my solitude.

    How is this for a quote?
    "'How much do you love me?' Midori asked.
    "Enough to melt all the tigers in the world to butter, ' I said."

    Okay.. here is another one. Sorry still from Norwegien Wood (going to be reading After Dark soon)

    Pg 282 (Naoko speaking( "I am getting rid of everything from the past so I can be reborn in the future."

    After Dark is really good mickitaz - Murakami describes the city so well, like a living breathing beast, but one of those from a Hayao Miyazaki movie, probably oozing something! As always it has the classic Murakami style to it, very easy to read and intreguing, though the story only spans a few hours.

    cool. I just started reading Murakami, and I like his easy flow of writing. His way of describing certain scenes is quite remarkable. I was planning on reading some of his other material. As it turns out, I bought myself an ereader for my birthday (used). The one I bought has several books loaded on it already, and this is one of them. This should be the next book on my reading list.
