Was the reference popular?

It should have been but it was not (popular).

I'm sorry to hear that. A similar circumstance derived upon Sister Double Happiness, a great San Francisco band that never achieved the popularity it deserved.

So far, finished Murakami's Rat Trilogy, Hard-Boiled Wonderland, Norweigan Wood, South of the Border/West of the Sun. Next in line is Dance, Dance, Dance (should've read it before South of the Border but somehow mixed up the publication dates). Enjoyed them all so far.

Next in line is War & Peace. The Pevear translation is hardly readable on the Kindle (lots of annotations and footnotes which need two clicks each--simply annoying), so I had to get a book. While I was at it, I picked up a few more. Crime and Punishment (Pevear/Everyman's Library Classics), The Brothers Karamazov (Pevear/Everyman's Library Classics), The Tale of Genji (Seidensticker, Everyman's Library Classics), Ulysses (Everyman's Library Classics), The Great Gatsby (Collectors Lirary, already read it, but I figured owning a hard copy wouldn't be too bad), The Count of Monte Cristo (Buss, Clothbound Classics). Hope the quality of them is decent. Anyway, these will be the books next on my list.

I have read almost all Murakami's books and also enjoyed them tremendously. You shouldn't miss The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, usually regarded as his masterpiece and probably my favourite. I also strongly recommend his short story collections as well as Sputnik Sweetheart.

Just started this. Reading this one, the BA Short Stories, and BA Essays is a fall ritual for me. I've started a bit late this year.

11/23/63 Stephen King thought it was appropriate with the 50th anniversary of the assassination this month, who knows might reveal who did it.

No need. James Elroy already let that particular cat out of the bag.
