The Elephant Dances.

leave a comment »

Last week, while we were at Kinokuniya, I weighed two books in my hand, a habit I have cultivated when I am spoilt for choice. Dance Dance Dance or The Elephant Vanishes, I had to make a decision. In the heat of the moment, I chose the thicker one and made a dash for the cashier before I changed my mind.

Only to come home and realise that I had already read Dance Dance Dance way earlier. Bummer. Well anyway, two more books and I can declare myself an ardent HM fan.

I just learnt that Murakami’s first two books, though translated, are not being widely distributed worldwide. So I hope I get lucky on my next Tokyo trip. =D
