What I read about ...

Pretty much - as far as I can tell - all of Haruki Murakami's back catalogue was published on kindle yesterday (at least in the UK) exactly a week before his latest 1Q84 arrives. None of it was available when I last looked a couple of months ago.

I've already pre-ordered 1Q84. What with that and Steve Jobs' authorized biography being brought forward to October 24, it has struck me that Kindle pre-orders have changed my reading style from that of a hard-back eschewing softcover man to an on-publication novelty grabber.

Over the month from the Murakami, by way of illustration the following will be winging me way over the ether the instant that they are made available.

18 Oct 2011 1Q84 (Icons passim)
24 Oct 2011 Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography (Icons passim)
31 Oct 2011 Eat Pray Eat (Icons passim)
17 Nov 2011 Tapped Out: Rear Naked Chokes, the Octagon, and the Last Emperor: An Odyssey in Mixed Martial Arts (Icons passim)
