The Long Wait

The Norwegian translation of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 is here, finally! We've been waiting and longing and wanting for so long. The Norwegian (fabulous) translator Ika Kaminka has been working fast. Even so, it has taken quite some time for her to get through it. I love the fact that it is so huge (751 pages, book 1 & 2 combined, as intended by Murakami). I hope I will manage to read real slow. I have great expectations for this one. I'd love to be with it for a while.

I have the house for myself for another 30 minutes, the coffee is ready, I'll put the computer and phone away. No knitting today, I'm afraid. Aomame and Tengo, I'm ready!
