I love Anna Karenina! Which translation are you reading? I've read two, and I love the Pevear & Volokhonsky version.

I have been avoiding Twitter as I know it would distract me too much. Great job on reading.

Anna Karenina is one of my very favorites! I hope you're enjoying it. I've read it twice and would read it again!

Thank you all for the support I know I am probably the only one who chooses classics for a read-a-thon but that is what I own mostly lol. That and biographies and histories
