The good news is that I have really hit a groove with War and Peace and am enjoying it quite a bit. The bad news is that progress reports don’t make for very interesting posts. I am not the kind of person who can effectively (and entertainingly) write about books while I am in midstream. And since War and Peace is such a classic what could I really say about it anyway? Don’t get me wrong I will have some thoughts when I finish the whole thing but nothing so profound that I can stretch it out into weeks worth of posts.
I promise I will have something more interesting to blog about later in the week.
In the meantime if you are participating in Dovegreyreader Scribbles’ read-a-along, you might not want to look at the second photo below.
The image below is a picture of the character tree that I mapped out poolside back in January when we were in Thailand. I was trying to wrap my brain around all the various characters and their associations. At this point I still ocassionally glance at the list of characters but it is getting easier to keep everyone straight.
