Personally, I enjoy bragging, especially about what I’ve read.
This year, I’d like to take on the doorstopper War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. My goal is not to read War and Peace in a week, or even a month, but rather to savor the experience. I plan to log only 15 minutes of my reading time a day reading this, as I have many other books I need to be reading.
I wouldn’t mind having others take the reading plunge with me. I mean, it could be like a secret club, and something we can brag about during cocktail parties, cuz face it, you sound damn cool when you talk about Russian Lit and Tolstoy and big books. Also, it’s on project guttenburg and probably in your library.
I’ll be posting monthly updates on my War and Peace progress, quotes and initial thoughts. If I post a spoiler, there will be a warning.
For me, this starts today, but if this appeals to you at all, feel free to join the reading at any point in time.
