3 Day, 3 Quote Challenge: Haruki Murakami

Hey, and good afternoon! I was tagged by Jessica @ The Awkward Book Blogger earlier this month! Thanks for tagging me. I’ve been caught up with work and my social life, so usually I’m late at doing these challenges. For this challenge, I thought it would be cool to focus on Haruki Murakami, one of my favorite Japanese authors.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post a quote for three consecutive days
  3. Nominate three new bloggers each day.
