Taking a break…

ANZ LitLovers is taking a short break to visit the birthplace of Pushkin, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Gogol et al.

Depending on how good internet access is overseas, I may be able to share some Bookish Moments. I have plans to visit the Pushkin Museum, Yasnaya Polyana and so forth, but I’ve also scheduled some posts for while I’m away in case things go awry.

I’ll try to respond to comments when I can.

I’ll be back soon!

    • Ah, two years ago this trip was scheduled for Greece. But things have been a bit untidy in Greece lately, so we changed our destination!

  13. […] won’t appeal to all tastes.  My first two attempts to read it failed (but that may have been due to personal circumstances).  The third time I picked it up I found myself enjoying it immensely, despite its coarse language […]
