You can pre-order Haruki Murakami’s novel 1Q84 now!

It’s true! Amazon.com has 1Q84 available for a mere 19 dollars and change! It won’t be released until October 25, 2011, but sign up now. So you can wait by the mailbox every day until all 928 pages are delivered to your door.

I can’t stand myself I’m so excited. And, I’m not even an Amazon associate so there’s no benefit to me in spreading the word.

Except that maybe more of you will fall in love with Haruki as I did.

  1. I'm going to wait. I'm still hoping some bookstore near me will have a midnight release party. I would so stay up for that. Go out and have sushi, maybe even some karoke, then pick up my copy and stay up until the wee hours reading.I'm so jealous of those little Harry Potter fans.

  2. C.B. James, I went to the midnight release of the last Harry Potter book at Borders, and it was so stinkin' fun. A lot of the children from my school were there, and so was my 17 year old son…I happened to win one of the door prizes which was seven huge cookies all shaped like something from the series: Hermione, Ron and Harry, plus a broom, a sorting hat, and I can't remember what else. Anyway, I know what you mean. Wouldn't it be great fun to go to a release for 1Q84? At any rate, I'll be celebrating with you in spirit.

  3. Good point, Diane! I know I loved having Bleak House on my Nook; much easier to hold. Except my thumb got tired pushing the button all the time. One of the down sides of enlarging the font. 😉

  4. Thanks for making me aware Bellezza! That is exciting. Any idea what the premise is supposed to be? Is the title any kind of reference to 1984 or am I reading into things too much?

  5. As I understand, the premise is the usual wonderful Murakami stuff: quirky, exploring relationships, etc. but also loosely based on 1984. Which I've never read. Suppose I should pick that up first…but I just can't wait for this latest from my favorite author. So nice to see you, novelinsights!
