I've read these titles (and have them in First U.S. Editions):

1.) Kafka on the Shore
2) The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle [his masterpiece, in my opinion.)
3) A Wild Sheep Chase
4) Sputnik Sweetheart
5) Norwegian Wood [paperback original - U.S.]
6) South of the Border
7) Hear the Wind Song [Kodansha International First Edition - paperback]

I also have a Reader's Guide to the "Wind-Up Bird," as I was contemplating teaching that book in an English II Lit course I was teaching at Miami University.

Addtionally, I have a nice critical work on him and his writings, entittled "Haruki Murakami and the Music of Words," by one of his long-time translators, Jay Rubin.

I MUST buy those two missing books while they're still available in hardback, or I jeopordize the integrity of my collection.
