My thoughts have been everywhere this week, meaning I'm popping in and out of eighteen books again. 😌 (Audiobooks seem to work especially well right now.)

I long for the focus it takes to get through a substantial tome, but for now, I'm feeling Banana Yoshimoto and her deceptively simple prose, which actually houses deep longing and emotion. 

I'm currently leafing through her books in English (wishing I’d brought along some of my Japanese copies), hoping to write up a little something about them soon. 💙

Not pictured here because I left them at the office: Goodbye Tsugumi, Amrita, Kitchen, and Lizard.

今週はなかなか心も頭もひとつのことに集中することが難しいようで、読書が進まずというより、読書してていいのか、とあれこれ考えてしまう。

図書館に行ったら吉本ばななさんの小説の英語版がたくさん置いてあり、時間的に読めもしないのに8冊ほど借りてきてしまいました…。パラパラとページをめくりながら、日本語の文章を思い出そうとしています (ムリです。笑)
