How many people live in a neighborhood that boasts a Russian bookstore? I happen to. I went there tonight to pick up a copy of War and Peace in Russian for Lulu. She is going to take on the completely mind-blowing project of reading the English and Russian books side by side. I can barely read a sentence. That rocks!
I described the project to the shopkeeper and initially she was appalled by the idea of destroying a copy of the Master's. I then showed her this site, and she got quite enthusiastic. She even donated another book in Russian for the cause.
Tomorrow is Friday, studio day. Can't wait! -- Lola
