ON BOOKS ~ Location = Russia...


raidergirl3 asks - It's Tuesday, where is reading taking you?

I am breathlessly in love with someone other than my husband and trying to figure out how to pull it all off. It seems this business of deceipt is not uncommon in the circles I travel, which are high society in Moscow & Petersburg and jaunts to the country in the summer.

(Anna Karenina - L. Tolstoy, fiction)

What a wonderful quote! I'd be delighted if you'd come visit mine: http://storytimewithtonya.blogspot.com/2009/01/teaser-greenmantle.html

I never read Anna Karenina always wanted to maybe one day I will get to it.

Quite an entertaining blog here, Ms. Bumbles.

I take it you are enjoying this novel as much as I am. It is loaded with great lines, and you have picked some dandies. One of my own favorites is:

She looked at her watch. There were still three hours to go, and the memory of the details of their last meeting fired her blood.

When I read that, I knew Anna was getting into deep, deep trouble.

Juicy! That teaser will definitely draw you in. Sounds like a promising read.

Thank you all for the comments - I think there is some confusion though - this is not a quote or Teaser - it was my summary for the Where Are You? meme of the book I am reading. The quotes from the book are found in the Teaser Tuesday post. In any event, I am glad you have enjoyed my comments on the book!
