Watch That Man

Things might be a bit quiet over here for the next little while, as I found a copy of Haruki Murakami's "Kafka On The Shore" at the local library. My guess is that someone will reserve it during the next three weeks, which would mean that I couldn't extend the loan. The same thing happened with William Gibson's "Pattern Recognition", forcing me to go out and buy the thing for myself. (Memo to self: are librarians and book publishers engaging in some kind of scam?)

So it's going to be like an entire season of "24" compressed into three weeks: Will he make it? Or is the whole thing gonna blow? (Frankly, I don't like my chances. That's a lot of pages for someone as slow as me to get through in three weeks. Don't put money on me.)
