    I rarely have the urge to read a book, but the sort of right-in-the-middle end of season 1 of Pachinko made me getting that book.

    Just started and enjoying it. It's not 1:1 to the TV series, and that is good. No more spoilers.

    A Wild Sheep Chase, Murakami

    Unexpected and enjoyable. Third book in the so-called, "Rat Trilogy." I guess I should have read Pinball and 1973 first as @SirNotAppearing did.

    Great section in McPhee's Oranges book is when he's driving around Florida looking for fresh orange juice and all they serve him is concentrate.

    Reading the early Nevil Shute books, from the first in the 1920s up to he left for Australia after the war.

    Interesting seeing his changing writing style and ability and social changes. The early books are unbelievably racist (I don't like to eat out in London, the restaurants are full of dagoes) and unsurprisingly very sexist. During the depression his view of the rich and bankers in particular nose dives.

    After the Cure (5 books in series). A slightly different take on zombies.

    Just finished "Dance, Dance, Dance," the sequel to "A Wild Sheep Chase." Fantastic! I guess I'm gonna' go backwards and read Pinball 1973

    I don't remember ever reading "Dance, Dance, Dance".

    My bedside table. Books either waiting to be read or currently being read . A queue of online stuff as well.
