Sachiko's book-flipping habit

In the film, at least on 2 occasions, Sachiko moves her hands through the bookshelf with her eyes closed, and seems to randomly choose a book to flip over a few pages. I believe the scene where she does this at Ogata's home comes first chronologically.

I am not Japanese, so if I have missed any culture-specific reference, please let me know.
