^^ That sounds very very interesting. I need to check it out.

Currently I'm reading Murakami Haruki's "Shikisai o Motanai Tazaki Tsukuru to, Kare no Junrei no Toshi" or Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. It's quite good so far. 

First time I've read one of his books in Japanese. Bit of a challenge for me. But I'm getting better at really enjoying Japanese lit by plowing through the kanji I'm not sure of, rather than obsessing over each sentence. 

Any Murakami fans out there? Ifyou haven't read his work I strongly suggest The Wind Up Bird Chronicle.

^^I went through a Murakami phase back in 2008 after watching "A wild Sheep Chase"  Alan Yentob documentary for the BBC on the elusive Murakami.

It has become a bit cliched these days but since my teenage years i have read Kerouac's On the road cover to cover probably 20 times if i have an hour to spare i will read a couple of random chapters. I dont even know why anymore, I know it off by heart. I have well thumbed copies in the car, a copy at work and 2 at home?

On the Road is such a fun read. You can feel the ebb and flow of his energy level as he rushes manically through his life. You ever read the Dharma Bums or Big Sur?

I have, Only once though, nothing like my On the road addiction. I used to read a lot of beat generation.
The pace of otr is down to Kerouacs amphetamine induced writing on one continuous roll of paper.
I would love to see the scroll in its entirety but living in the UK that probably wont happen.

Did you purchase the new scroll version of the book?  Basically just as it was written.
