15 Oct

It’s Monday.  That means it’s time to fess up and share your Anna Karenina place in the comments.

Me: I’ve finished Part IV and I’m just dipping my toes into Part V.  When I told my husband this, he asked, “Are ya braggin’ or complaining?”  Ummm… I think I’m doing both.  I’m happy to have reached the half-way point, but if I’m only reading one part a week, it will be another month before I finish.  I’m embracing the mantra “Forward is a pace.”

So let’s hear it!  Where’s your bookmark?
Brag or complain.  Where are you in Anna K?

      Haa, I realized I typed “party” instead of “part”…maybe this is a Freudian slip?? Is Anna Karenina a party?? haaa 🙂

        I think the movie version is going to focus a lot on the party aspect. Have you seen some of the costumes?!

      Ruth, looks like you’re in the lead. I’m really wondering what Tolstoy has planned for the second half of the book.

    Starting part 5. Really felt like he could almost have finished the thing after part 4. Anyone with me?

      Me. I don’t know what Tolstoy was thinking when he caused such major parts of the plot to happen so early (relatively early for a Russian novel) in the story.

      Yes, I just finished part 4. That would have been a good stopping point!

    Watch it, people!!! Don’t give anything away, some of us are only at Part 3 Chapter 27 🙂

    Well, actually, Jerry’s at Part 4 Chapter 9 just like Gina. He says he’s losing ground because of all the Tiger games.
