Either I'm Funny...

Don't judge a book by it's Cover

All these are images except for one quote in the fourth row. Looking up this partial quote identifies it as being said by the author Haruki Murakami (full quote "Either I'm funny or the world's funny. I don't know which. The bottle and lid don't fit. It could be the bottle's fault or the lid's fault. In either case, there's no denying that the fit is bad."), which is an indicator that all the images are book covers of Murakami's books. Identifying all 14 books is the first step.
