Julie S. I have a hard time knowing how to pronounce authors' last names. For example:

I want to read We by Yevgeny Zamyatin, but how do I even begin to pronounce that name?

Usually you can Google the person's name and the word "pronounce" and find something. I imagine it's pronounced pretty much how it looks, because it's a Russian name so that is technically the transliterated spelling. Just remember that in transliterated words, the "i" is usually pronounced "ee" and "a" like "ah".

Julie S. Thanks. I'll have to use that trick of Google. It's amazing what you can find on Google...

I know, right? It's all in figuring out the right keywords =)
