With a boost from Murakami's Facebook page, Kafka on the Shore has been selected as the Atlantic's July book club choice! Keep in mind that this is how the Atlantic promoted its finalists for the choice (emphasis mine):

We're hurtling toward the end of the first month of our big, collective read-along. We've had a bang-up June reading Margaret Atwood's Blind Assassin. A complex tale of deceit, loss, and tragedies on more than one planet, we (and by we, I mean you) couldn't have chosen a better book for our inaugural 1book140. For July and August, however, we thought we'd try for something a tad lighter. For the next two months, then, we'll indulge in the time-honored tradition of the beach read: Books that pair perfectly with hot, lazy days and ice cold libations.

Yes, there's no better "beach read" than Kafka on the Shore, is there? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I can't wait to see the feedback. The discussion starts July 5.
