I asked a friend a while back if he intended to read 1Q84. He said, "It's not my fault that Haruki Murakami is still alive and writing books." I kind of felt the same way. I did buy it though. And I cracked it open today and ended up reading the first 125 pages (ie ~ 1/9th of the book) straight through. So far, it's actually really great. I'm surprised, somehow, although I don't know why I should be. The last new-ish book I tried to read was The Night Circus, which completely bored me, although lots of people seem to love it.
Posted a few words about Sleeping Beauty on HTMLGIANT. You'll never find it in a theater but it's still on demand and downloadable on Amazon. See it! I'm curious what other people think.
