Today's picture/ Big Book!

While I was Christmas shopping at our independent bookstore yesterday, I came upon this great edition of the big book, itself. It is a new translation, apparently very readable, and true to Tolstoy's words. Well, really, how could I resist? Last night we read a bit aloud, and today, Tom began in earnest. I'll let him read it first since I have all these book challenges going. :<)


  1. I think reading War and Peace would be an entire challenge all on its own! Good luck!

  2. I read this book for the first time when I was about 16, then 20 years later for the second time. I think I should read it again now, as everytime it was "new" and different to understand...In any case, it is a GREAT book....


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
