There's so much death in this book and it's very sad. I feel for Komako, but I also would like to know how Shimamura feels. He's very closed off with his feelings even though we see everything through his eyes #symbolism #japaneseliterature #romance

This flowery language and #symbolism were never really my forte but I think I've gotten better, still...I can't tell if that "mountain" that "seduced" him, which he then promptly "roughly climbed" is an actual mountain or a woman... #japaneseliterature #romance

jb72 Yeah symbolism was lost on me at times. 2mo

An exciting book haul from my trip to Sydney to visit my son. Definitely influenced by recent travels 🛳 ⛩ ✈️ with A Gentleman in Moscow and Petersburg, The Train was on time a German novella and Before the Coffee Gets Cold based in Tokyo. Throw in Ian McEwan and John Le Carre...I don‘t know what to read first 🤭Some were on my TBR wish list and the others just had to be bought 🤣🤣😂

CarolynM I bought Before the Coffee Gets Cold today too. It sounds interesting. Hope we both enjoy it 🙂 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm I‘ve seen a lot of this lately. Interesting premise, I think there was a film too. Looking forward to yours and @CarolynM ‘s thoughts when you both read it. 🙂 3mo
Freespirit It was a Staff Pick at the Hill of Content bookshop in Balmain @CarolynM . We can compare notes 😊👍🏻 3mo

Freespirit I bought it without knowing anything @erzascarletbookgasm . I shall let you know how it turns out..but I like the premise also and I enjoy Japanese authors...very quirky😍 3mo
batsy The tagged book is something I'm interested in getting around to at some point! And agree with above, Before the Coffee sounds good as well. I've a soft spot for both Russian and Japanese fiction :) 3mo
Freespirit Hi @batsy I will let you know how it goes. Some times those unknown books turn out to be the best😄 3mo

Red Book | C G Jung

#FallIsBooked Day 14: Not just #RedCover but THE Red Book, a holy grail for followers of Jung. Unlike other academic texts, this one reads more like an ‘illuminated‘ journal that consists of Jung‘s painstaking calligraphic writings and luminous art – he did have a multiplicity of talents. My feature of this gorgeous book with even more inner art and a youtube clip of how it was preserved and reproduced: https://wp.me/pDlzr-dWm

I wanted to love this book which claims to give the history of many Halloween symbols. Unfortunately I can‘t even recommend it. It jumps between myth & fact, places & times without real coherence. Some “facts” are thrown in seemingly for shock value (druids burning people alive in cages-in a kids book). And nowhere does she give any source material to back up her claims. I will give any other books in this series a hard pass #TeamStoker 6 pts

MatchlessMarie Not citing sources IS scary 🕷️ 4mo

😬😬😬🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻Is thanking everyone for a 10k milestone still a thing?! Regardless, I‘m doing it! Thanks everyone for being such a great community of bookworms 😍 My tbr list loves you, my bookshelves deplore you for the extra weight of each book added since they‘re struggling to support the others already, and my brain can‘t get enough! Litsy, you‘re the best!

LiteraryinLititz Congrats on your milestone! 😁 7mo
