The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Strange Library - Haruki Murakami - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Strange Library:

A library trip gets twisted.

My favorite Haruki Murakami quote from the book:

"Each possesses his own thoughts, each treads his own path. "

Questions I pondered while reading The Strange Library:

Was that perhaps a wee bit of an over-attachment?

Should I learn to be a little more forceful in my nos?

My thoughts about The Strange Library:

An interesting twist on how a library acquires knowledge.

Clingy parents are hard to deal with.

I will be avoiding library basements from now on.
