In case you forgot, Haruki Murakami short stories are available online

Not only are we losing sleep over K-dramas and online games—kids in lockdown are also trying to finish a book. Come at us, Goodreads.

But we’ll admit it: It can be difficult when the reading slump gets to us. So when battling shitty attention span, short stories are the way to go. There’s a wealth of free online short stories and Haruki Murakami happens to have some of his work up on the interwebs.

In case you haven’t chanced upon them, Murakami’s short stories can be accessed on The New Yorker. Among the available titles are “U.F.O. in Kushiro,” “The Year of Spaghetti,” “Town of Cats,” “Kino,” “Samsa in Love,” “Cream,” and “Scheherazade.”
You can also go back to some of the stories included in his novel like “Barn Burning,” “Sleep,” “TV People,” and “The Elephant Vanishes.” It’s a good mix of mind-boggling, hyperspecific, existential and a little absurd.

Indulge all you want, Short Attention Span Social Social Club™ members. And if music doesn’t disrupt your reading, you might as well listen to Murakami’s personal vinyl picks while you’re at it.
