Sometimes I wonder if she is still writing her own book, or she just hires ghostwriters.
But as far as her fame goes, she can write anything she wants and people will still buy it. She no longer has a care in the world about profitability!

2022 done list.

Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
Story of a so called knight errant across the countryside of Spain, comedic encounters with objects (windmill) and other people. Written 500 years ago and was translated into multiple languages.
Fun read, we are used to this kind of narrative now but when it was written apparently this style of humorous storytelling poking fun at the aristocracy was unheard of at the time. Filled with facts and references to other books. Author had read a lot of books prior to writing this. No surprise since entertainment at that era is mainly reading and not much of anything else.

Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman
Men without Women, both by Murakami

Collection of short stories by murakami. I think he described it best in the prologue.
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «

Some parts of these short stories do make an appearance in his novels.

Map of the Invisible World by Tash Aw
Of all the other authors I've read, his style of storytelling very closely resembles Murakami. Good flow and simple but in the same time conveys a lot in their writing.

Atomic Habits by James Clear
Self help book focusing on how to make good habits stick.

21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari
Since I have read his first 2 books, this is a no brainer. Thoroughly enjoyed his books and this is no exception.

Killing Commendatore by Murakami
Novel about a portrait painter who moved to the countryside after a shock divorce and his encounter with an Idea who manifested himself in the figure of the Commendatore, a figure from a painting he found in the attic of the house he was staying in.

People just like to trash her because she is successful woman. Men don’t get half the shit if they do the same.
