Russian Reading Challenge 2008

Russian Reading Challenge 2008

This challenge is a twelve month challenge, but the minimum number of books to read is only four. Why? Many Russian novels are quite lengthy, so it may take more than one month to read one book.

Both fiction and non-fiction are acceptable here, as well as short stories and poetry. Authors read should either be authors who wrote (write) in Russian or authors who wrote (write) about Russia and Russians. The challenge begins January 1, 2008 and ends December 31, 2008, so you have plenty of time to be thinking about your book list. Oh, yes, there may even be some prizes in store throughout the year!

My List:

1) *Crime and Punishment by Fyoder Dostoevesky

2) *War and Peace Leo Tolstoi

3) *The Crew of the Mekong by E Voiskunsky and I Lukodyanov

4) *The Origins of World War Two by Igor Ovsyany

If I can, I will read the Autobiography of Lenin.
