hey^^, thanks for dropping by. i enjoyed it too, but then i really am an unabashed murakami fan. i just like how his mind works, and this book, being non-fiction, gave a different insight, i thought. also, his sense of humour always cracks me up...
haven't read unaccusomed earth yet. i live in france now and have limited access again to english books. seems it also got mixed reviews, but i think i'll check it out anyway. i loved her first short story collection, so i'd like to see how she's evolved...
how about you, read anything interesting of late?
i enjoyed it (finished it just now^^). the tone is very unique for a ghost story, he sticks to a 'normal' narative as much as he can. but it's the message more than the writing that got me. the blurb on the back is right: 'a sentimental meditation on life and happiness'.
excellent, 'i have the right...' does sound like something i'd like^^. i'm looking forward to reading it then.
i haven't read any books by coetzee apart from 'disgrace'. i'll check the one you're reading out sometime.
murakami's memoir, do you mean 'what i talk about when i talk about running'? that one's on my list too^^.
it's on my wish list actually. trying to resist too so thought i'd have a look before i decide. i just tried a bookshop earlier on today (in montreal) and they said they didn't have it. ms rose was also saying she is looking into it. i'll let you know if i get my hands on it

Thanks so much.
The class begins April 15, 2008 and is offered through Perelandra College.
You can access the website and read about me from this address: http://www.venus.perelandra.info/moodle/course/category.php?id=2
You'll also need to contact Brandie Lamprou and tell her you want to take the class.
Tell her that you are enrolling in Story Basics 101 taught by me.
I'd also leave a message on her cell : 858-525-1198
You'll need to mail them a check for the course. Perelandra College will not cash the check until they have reimbursed you the fee for the course and you have cashed the check they send you. This is all being done for tax purposes.
A college donor is donating the cost for the course for all who enroll in this session of the 8-week class of Story Basics 101 that I'm teaching.
Over the next year Perelandra College will be starting a MA program in Writing.
It will be low residency, with most of the work done on-line.
This class is the last step in achieving WASC accreditation for them to begin the MA program.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
I look forward to working with you.
Thanks for being my friend at shelfari and taking the course.
Thanks so much for accepting my offer of friendship.
I hope you are having a wonderful and blessed day.
What are you reading?
I also just finished Phillipa Gregory's The Other Boleyn Girl," and am now reading "The Constant Princess," by her also and "Daughter of the Game," by Tracy Grant.
I too am a writer. I am presently working on a novel that stems from the third story in my first work, a set of interconnected short stories set in Oakland, CA where I live.
You can read about my short story collection, "Keeper of Secrets...Translations of an Incident" and me at: http://anjuellefloyd.com
Please visit it. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Again thanks for being my friend in reading and at shelfari.com
