New Year’s Book Resolutions 2012:
Who needs to lose weight when there are books to be read? Certainly not the employees of Book Soup. If you are like us, you are haunted by the books that you haven’t read. Looming over your nightstand, taunting you from bookstore shelves, leering at you from the hands of attractive people at cafes—Who are these people reading interesting books at cafes? Are they really so attractive or is it just the allure of seeming to know more than you know? And if you had read The Master and Margarita, for instance, would you have some opening salvo, some witticism to offer that would translate into a lasting, fulfilling relationship?—Anyway, in these coming weeks, the employees of Book Soup will be bringing you the books they always wanted to read, always meant to read, and this year will definitely read. If you, dear reader, read these books, then you will impress all the attractive people at cafes that you want.
From Dan, our Assistant Store Manager:
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
I have never read Murakami. I find him intimidating, but I am ready to do it. This is the year! My hand is shaking. Is the room spinning?
