Every Year Should Have Some Heavy Lifting


I am currently considering these choices:

  • Proust
  • Tolstoy
  • Gibbon
Each one requires a time and focus commitment. 

Right now, I am tempted to re-read War and Peace if only because I was staggered by Tolstoy's insights on people. Many times, I had to pause to consider what had been revealed. 

There is much debate over which translation to get. My favorite is by Ann Dunnigan in the Signet Classic edition.
