Wind Up Bird

I'm home sick (2 days' medical leave from the doctor, with antibiotics and a swollen throat) but can you believe it, I'm extremely happy?

I woke up later than the usual time this morning and heard a creaky wheel going "ekekekekekekek". Then I went to the kitchen and heard it again, and realised it's actually a bird! I immediately thought of the wind-up bird from the Wind-Up Bird Chronicles. I've been reading that book for ages, but only read a couple of pages each time I pick it up. It's a moody book that requires a quiet reading attitude.

I'm almost done with Mr Punch and I'm prepared to write a proper review this time! I'll post it soon.
