    Anyone read War & Peace?

    I've been feeling really weird lately. I studied really hard for my finals (unnecessarily) , have been working out again, and I've been taking on extra work at my jobs. I dunno. But now I really know I've gone crazy... I've decided to read War & Peace in my spare time, and I'm actually looking forward to it. It just arrived in the mail a few minutes ago, and I truly underestimated the size, but for some reason, that made me happy... I'm contemplating Atlas Shrugged too... I have no idea if I'm even intelligent enough to read them properly, but I'm going to try.

    I'm also eating a lot of veggies. This must be how my brother felt before he turned vegetarian.

    Well, has anyone read it? Did you like it? The impression I always got is that people were forced to read it by their diabolical English 201 professors, and it nearly killed them... maybe someone here likes Tolstoy?

    I heard it makes a really good door stop
    I used to be a voracious reader but for some reason I just stopped. I haven't picked up a book in at least 3 years. I really miss it sometimes, but Tolstoy is not someone I would want to get my feet wet with again. Maybe re-read the Tao of Pooh
