Finally Read War & Peace This Summer!

Why were you inspired to do this?

I love to read the classics, and I've been wanting to learn Russian...so I decided to sink my teeth into the Russian mind with a real challenge-one of the most feared books in history, at over 1000 pages!

What were 3 things you did to make this happen?

Let go of the excuse of not wanting to carry an encyclopedia sized book around, and downloaded it FREE on my kindle for iPhone app!

The lit display allowed me to read at night, and the small screen and lightweight phone took away the perspective that I'd never get through it!

Ignored friends and everyone who asked if I was crazy for reading it, and actually began to enjoy sharing my frustrations about some sections along the way with my facebook friends...

How did you feel once you had accomplished this?

Pheeew! Finally! Been there! Did it! Now I think I deserve a t-shirt!
