    Thanks for linking! I love adding to others’ TBR piles when so many others can be accused of doing the same thing for me! ;)

    Enjoy War and Peace! I’ve read it twice and still love it.

      Michelle – you’ve read War and Peace twice? That’s quite an accomplishment!

        I have! Once because I was curious what all the fuss was about and a second time a few years ago with my online book club. I enjoyed the opportunity to read it with a group. Just remember, Russian storytellers are notoriously long-winded, and Tolstoy definitely had an agenda with W&P!
