Thanks to everyone who joined the Haruki Murakami Reading Challenge for 2011. It was so great to see people all over the world reading Murakami. I know I still have several Murakami stories that I'd like to read, or re-read, so are YOU ready to keep reading too?

Longlisted for the 2011 Man Asian Literary Prize.
The year is 1984. Aomame sits in a taxi on the expressway in Tokyo.
Her work is not the kind which can be discussed in public but she is in a hurry to carry out an assignment and, with the traffic at a stand-still, the driver proposes a solution. She agrees, but as a result of her actions starts to feel increasingly detached from the real world. She has been on a top-secret mission, and her next job will lead her to encounter the apparently superhuman founder of a religious cult.
