Anna Karenina

Okay, so I've never been the biggest fan of Tolstoy, but I'm gonna give it a go. Sometimes you just need to put time and new experiences between yourself and an author or book to appreciate it.

So, while I don't follow Oprah's book club, I have heard rave reviews about the translators of the version she used for her club. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky are considered premier Russian translators, and I am excited to see what their English translation brings to the story.

Here is a reading guide for the book.

Of course, I'm also trying to finish up another book. From the Notebooks of Dr. Brain by Minister Faust is an interesting read, and definitely a book I never would have considered ten years ago. The older I get, the more I'm in search of a superhero.
