If I don't find time in a day to wander through shelves filled with books, then something has gone horribly wrong. Usually I go to the library, just to sit and read on my lunch break, but inevitably I wander past a book that cries out to be held. An Artist of the Floating World, was one of those books. Its lime green, soft pleather hardcover drew me in, and then the name, Kazuo Ishiguro, sank into me like a hook. It's the same feeling you have when you bump into an old friend and find time to finally catch up. Finding these genres and authors that feel so familiar is what makes reading so intensely personal, and yet something we can meaningfully share. When you meet a stranger who likes the same books, its like a character reference... OK you're in!
