Weekend reading

Haruki Murakami, "Where I'm Likely to Find It" (Via Scott)

Jorge Luis Borges, "Pierre Menard, Author of Don Quixote" (Via 400 Windmills)

Chuck Palahniuk's excerpt from Haunted, "Slumming: A Story by Lady Baglady" (Via Randa at Moorish Girl--and here's where she can be found on days that are not Friday.)

Regarding this last one, I was interested in reading the novel until I read the Publisher's Weekly and Booklist mini-reviews on Amazon. If they're trying to sell the book, why have they posted "reviews" that give so much away?
