I read somewhere that Reading Challenges are so…. last year. HUH!? And then I realized that lately, I haven’t even thought about the challenges I have signed up. Uh oh.
That’s right! It’s JUNE and Maree of Just Add Books and I are reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami and most likely tweeting about it to the boredom and exasperation of all.
Maree’s first tweet after she –aka @justaddbooks — got the book in hand made me laugh:
There is a cat. And it is missing.
I’m almost sure that THAT really is the theme of this interesting novel. I know nothing, I don’t want to know anything and I’m enjoying it immensely so for. (If I can just stay away from Twitter so I can get in more reading time .)
If you want to read along with us, we are not an exclusive little club and invite any and all to read and tweet with us!
The hashtags are #windupbird, #murakami. and Nat — aka @inspringthedawn — will be featured in many of the twitterings, as she is host of the Murakami Challenge.
OH! And in America, today is still Maree’s birthday!! (June 12)
As for those other challenges, I think I will dust off that page and see what books I need to move up the list so I am sure to read this year while I am still not stressing out about how many days are left in the year…
HOW ARE YOU DOING ON YOUR CHALLENGES?
