it was described to me, in part, as "gay murakami" and i wholeheartedly agree.
just finished "revenge" by yoko ogawa, excellent "horror-ish" collection for spooky season. the book does get graphic, so be warned. i really enjoyed it, i've seen multiple people describe it as a "lethal ensnaring web" of a book, and after finishing it, i see how good that desciption is. i won't give spoilers, but the way the stories connect reminds me of silky threads.
please note: my first shift was on indie bookstore day, a day of a large sale, and a day when many students were buying textbooks. it was certainly a trial by fire, but it was a blast.
i am aware of the open book project, but am lookin' for something with less...diyness. ideally something i can just dump a jailbreak on and call it a day. (both my current e-readers require soldering/extra parts to jailbreak)
boosts for visibilty very much appreciated.

but i'm saving it for later, when i need the emotional boost..
but later is always a "i'll need it more later".
@lapis i apologize for the @, but just wanted to thank ya' for the recc ta use thestorygraph, the thing's black magic. i got a bookstore bud who gives pretty good book reccs, and thestorygraph recc'd the same thing.
it was a very good recc. will be usin' thestorygraph a bunch in da future.
