Announcing a Russian Literature Month in January 2015

To start the New Year off with a whazoo, I'd like to announce that I'm hosting a Russian Literature Month in January 2015.

This year, the event is open to books originally written and published in Russian no matter what region the authors hail from. In other words, if a writer's ethnic group is Uzbekistani but he or she writes novels in Russian, these works may be included in the Russian Literature Month Readalong.

Contemporary Russian literature and classic works are both included. Even medieval Russian sagas may be included.

I hope to read a number of novels for January, but for now, do you think you might be interested?

    1. I do hope you'd enjoy participating. I'll be posting more information soon. I'm hoping I could persuade a few people to engage in a Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak readalong. Not sure I'll find any takers, but I'm eager.

    1. I'm so glad you'd like to join in! When I literally dragged home my new box of Russian books, I realized that even though I've read a great number of Russian classics, there are so many I haven't read. More details will be posted soon!
