Kaye Try this from the page you‘re on. Go up to the top and tap the A. You can change the font first. Then make it bold if you want. Then tap on Page in that same area You can space the print far apart. Use the one on the right. Then you can set the margins narrower if you want. On bottom right set the alignment to the second one. It‘ll show the paragraphs that way. See if that helps. (edited) 1y
maximoffs Thank you @Suet624 and @Kaye ! Much appreciated! 1y

This book was moving and beautiful and sad in all the ways the memoirs I enjoy are. The audiobook was read by the author which I especially love for memoirs. Highly recommend, however it does have a trigger warning for CSA.

Norwegian Wood | Haruki Murakami
Bailedbailed

Y'all, I tried. I really did. But this was not a book for me. It was the first book on my "Start Here" list from Book Riot and I just have come to learn that apparently me and books translated from East Asia aren't for me (like The Vegetarian). Something about the writing style throws me off a little. I'll keep trying though, God knows I'm stubborn.

Twocougs I always think it‘s courageous to try, if when it doesn‘t work. 1y

zembla I haven‘t had luck with Murakami myself. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle felt stilted to me. I did really love this incredibly twisted Japanese crime novel by a female author — it‘s probably still the most disturbing novel I‘ve ever read, but I trust the author (if that makes sense) and I‘m glad I read it. 1y

Things you should know as I read this:
1) I hate Batman
2) not really into DC Comics
3) A friend who is REALLY into DC gave me a list of ones to try and this was on it (I actually loved Aquaman, sue me)
4) I actually don't speak to #3 anymore so why am I still doing this to myself? Who freaking knows.

zembla Batwoman is worth it. Wonder Woman rules too. I especially love her characterization in 1y
