Being a writer, I hate to admit this, but I've never read Anna Karenina -nor have I read War and Peace. I'm not proud of this, but I'm stating it as a simple fact. However I do plan to correct the situation. I downloaded Anna Karenina this morning. I think it's about forty hours long. I also bought War & Peace. The book weighs more than Jilda so I'm guessing it will take me until January 2023 to finish it, but you can consider it done.
Every writing coach, teacher, and author says that you must read voraciously.  I do read more than most, but not as much as I should.
So, I'll give updates now and then to let you know how I'm coming.
For my friends up on the eastern seaboard, get out your Long Johns and settle in for a bunch of the white stuff.
We've had a tremendous amount of rain the last few days and it's headed east. Good luck. I hope you all have a great weekend.

  1. You might enjoy "Books: a Memoir" by Larry McMurtry. I'm currently reading "Walter Benjamin at the Dairy Queen" by him. Both about his interest in reading.
