How old are you? How much time for reading do you have? What genre interests you? What are some books that you have loved?

Who cares if they’re new? they just have to be new to you. Do you want some ideas for
books that are just plain wonderful?

New to me is still new. As far as interests go…with the exception of romance novels, I enjoy reading just about anything put on paper

Haruki Murakami is one of my current favorites. I would start with his novel The Wind Up Bird Chronicles. It was suggested to me by a good friend as my first Murakami read. I fell in love with it instantly. David Sedaris is enjoyable as well if you appreciate his type of humor.

@queer – YES. Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World was one of my favourite books that I read last year. Haunting.
