Book Review? What Book Review?

I know I told a few of you that I would be posting my review of Kafka on the Shore, by Haruki Murakami, this last weekend. Alas, I spent the entire weekend with my husband going places and doing things that didn't include blogging. It was a wonderful and relaxing weekend travelling around the area and eating yummy food. I figured I would be forgiven for not writing my book review yet. Smile.

You may be wondering why there is a picture of a market basket sitting in the middle of my blog post. Well ... it is there because it is one of the Best. Things. Ever. This carry-all is collapsible, attractive (at least I think so), well made and sturdy. We're talking up to 50 lbs. ... that I will not be carrying around ... but I could ... if I wanted to. Just think of all the jars of honey that you could carry home from the outdoor market. Or books, people! Think of all the books you could fit in this baby! Anyway, this Best. Thing. Ever. was a gift from my SIL, the lovely M., who is always watching out for me. Thanks M.!

If you're interested in the market basket, click the photo or go to the website here.


  1. That is a nice basket! And I'll continue to wait patiently for your review of Kafka on the Shore. I am glad you were able to have a nice weekend away from the computer. Sometimes that it is a must!

  2. LOL--totally forgiven. :) It sounds like you had a lovely weekend with your husband, and that's definitely more important than the book review. I'll probably be chipping away at it for another week or two anyway!

    Love the basket!!

  3. Literary Feline: I really did enjoy a break from the computer. I haven't been blogging much, but I'm on a computer most of the day every weekday. It's fun to "go outside and play" once in awhile :o)

    Trish: I think I spread out my reading of Kafka on the Shore for about 4 weeks. It wasn't a terribly fast read for me. I'm still pondering exactly what to say in a review!

  4. I'm interested in the basket, but even more so in your thoughts of Kafka On The Shore. When you finish it. ;)
