I stumbled upon Haruki Murakami’s After Dark one day. I picked it up intrigued by the cover (yep, sucker for a cover right here). With little interesting me in my stack of books, I went for the new one and barely left the couch until it was finished. Spellbound would be a good word. Am I excited about his new book, 1Q84? Umm, yeah, like hell I’m excited.
