Lusie (illusie) | 2940 comments Hi Marina! I started reading Anna Karenina today. Maybe we can discuss it if you'd like. I have read the first 3 chapters.


message 41: by Marina (new)

Marina (sonnenbarke) | 1328 comments Hey Lusie, that'd be nice! I started it yesterday evening but can't remember how many chapters I've read so far - it's not easy to check as I have it on my Kindle. Anyway, Anna Karenina is on her way but hasn't arrived yet. Should we discuss it in private with private messages, what do you think?


message 42: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 2940 comments Sounds great!
