If you only read the books…
This is my absolute favorite quote. It’s no surprise, really, since it’s no secret that I love love love Haruki Murakami. But I think this quote it amazing for a lot of reasons. Not only does it encourage reading new and unique things, venturing off the bestsellers list, and considering more than what Oprah recommends, but I think this quote expresses the idea that we should always be thinking and evaluating, deciding and wondering, and not sticking to our preconceived notions and formerly held beliefs. I just love it.
I’m going to try to read more unique books this year, books that other people might not pick up or that focus on things that interest me, but maybe not most people.
What have you read that is different, crazy, offbeat, unusual or weird?
