Not the first time I hang on the last words of a book for much longer than possible. Just two pages before the ends, that lasted so long. I postponed the moment of reaching the last line, the last word, because it was so good, it was another master piece of Haruki Murakami.
I took it with me at my second interview, this time in Yangzhou, and I got a lot of time for reading, both there and on the train. Still I stop before the last words, I wanted to be in a more familiar and relaxing environment the moment I reached the last page.
The packing at home is almost ready as well. I still haven’t taken a definitive decision, some more things must be finished here, but anyway for the end of next week I will have a step out of the door, and more probably..
Today felt like a good day for closing the book. At least it won’t take space and weight in the packages of my stuff! God, as usual, I collected so much stuff in 2.5 years! Always difficult for me to throw away things!
The book will pass to a friend and maybe more later. A book must keep on being read, this book deserves just more eyes upon!
1Q84 has been a good travel companion! I’m sure it will be also for someone else!
