“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” Haruki Murakami

I haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey.

I’m okay with that.

I still don’t have that Kindle. 

Still okay with that.

I did borrow an eReader from the library. 

I did have fun learning the new technology. 

(New to me. Old news to all you techies).

I want my books.  I like old school.  I like books.

    Really appreciate Murakami’s observation – thanks for posting that! Just might steal it : ) Some friends and I have been getting together to read books that are classiscs, or have been on our TBRL (to be read list) for years, or simply seem to difficult to read through alone – Dante’s Divine Comedy, for instance. That gathering has been so much fun, and keeps us way behind the times of what everyone else is reading.

    Love the Murakami quote, it’s soooo true (totally stealing it). I’m with you on the 50 Shades, no interest whatsoever; I highly recommend adding ‘The Geography of Bliss’ by Eric Weiner to your list. =)

    I have not been reading nearly enough in these last few years of my life. I’m not sure what happened, but I am sure I don’t like it. I wouldn’t mind having a Kindle, because I’m fond of gadgets, but I’m pretty sure there would still be actual books I’d like to have, which would seem to defeat the purpose. However, whatever the format, I can just about guarantee you that 50 Shades will never be on my reading list!
