April 27, 2017, Wednesday evening -- Reading Haruki Murakami

In the Mission District
He is reading What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, by Haruki Murakami. This is his 15th book this year that he's read, which is a record for him. Before he read something by Murakami he thought of reading as a chore. Now, he reads lots of different authors. He likes to switch it up and read fiction, then nonfiction, then maybe a design book, so he doesn't rush into another story too quick. Fiction is his favorite. Other authors he's read recently have been César Aira, Simone de Beauvoir, and Kobo Abe.
