Good morning! Tuesday was a very successful Bout of Books day. I started one of my Russian classics, Dead Souls, and this book is nothing of what I expected. I think I expected something like "devastating downfall of a tortured Russian soul, caused by moral degredation and mental poverty", but instead, I'm reading a quite funny satire with highly comical characters. Can't say I am complaining though, it certainly makes a good Bout of Books read. I'm almost half way through, so we'll see how today goes!
|My copy of Dead Souls.|
In Estonian we write Russian names differently (Tšitšikov - Chichikov), so the whole affair with the unpronouncable
Slavic names gets even more complicated :p
Pages read on Tuesday: 194
Books finished: 1
What do my cats think about the books at hand:
|Mammucat with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Apologies about the quality.|
Jan took this out of my TBR pile, so unless he finishes it this week, I won't be reading this Harry Potter book during
Bout of Books.
Flavour of the day: Coffee with a little bit of coffee-flavoured cream liqueur (mmm...)
