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....
