Beach Bum Bookworm

If I raved on here about all the other stuff, it wouldn't be a Beach Bum's blog, it would be...well, messy. So with discipline and devotion, I have focused on the way of the beach, never deviating from the sandy path or the waves. This is good but in truth I struggle from time to time.

Was it sushi and
sashimi that led me to his door? Like I said way back, I think I'm turning Japanese, I think I'm turning Japanese, I really think so. My fascination with Nippon had me soaking up the work of Haruki Murakami back when asking for his books had store hands stare like slates. I mention this so you too can veer off the Booker bores and get your paws on literature that reads like a trip.

"Surfing's a more profound kind of sport than it looks. When you surf you learn not to fight the power of nature, even if it gets violent"; Sada -
Kafka on the Shore. That was easy. Now here's what's on the bookshelf at the shack right now...
