I'll just be reading Classic Russian Literature (mostly the 19th Century) but I welcome anyone that participates to read 20th century or contemporary Russian Literature and Non Fiction. I'll be listing the books I want to read on my 2017 Challenges Page.
Like with many challenges there will be four levels (going to make it interesting and name them after my favourite Russian writers):
- Level One (Tolstoy): 1-3 books
- Level Two (Chekov): 4-6 books
- Level Three (Dostoevsky): 7-11 books
- Level Four (Turgenev): 12+ books
Keely has also provided a handy and massive list of Russian literature, arranged by century. It's pretty fantabulous, so head on over and check it out.
I'll sign up for the Chekhov level of 4-6 books and see what happens from there!
