Happy birthday, Mr. Tolstoy.  You would have been 188 years old today.  And that is how long it feels like I have been reading Anna Karenina (976 pages of tiny print!).

I have been busy with modern life.  But I love reading your words which take me to 19th century Russia.  I want to visit Levin's house in the countryside.  I want to attend a dinner party at the Oblonsky's.  I want to dance beside Anna and Vronsky at a ball.

I want to spend all day reading.  (So I can finish the book and watch the movie!)

(If you want to know what to read, check out Some of a Kind for EXCELLENT suggestions!)
