August reading

August is always work-heavy, so no wonder I read so little. But I'm now happily embarked on Kafka on the Shore, in translation and hardcover, an absolute find from the neighbourhood Front Lawn Library. Evidently Murakami isn't someone's cup of tea, but he seems to be mine. Or Kafka does. I like it better than the emotionally phthistic narrator of Hitsuji, who enervates in both English and Japanese.

Barron, Jane and the Madness of Lord Byron
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Macdonald, Phantastes
Douglas, Good Night Mr. Holmes
Douglas, The Adventuress
Sherlock Holmes and the Ghosts of Bly
FMA 22-25 (translation)
Thich Nhat Hanh, Answers from the Heart
Ackroyd, The Clerkenwell Tales
