Anna Karenina

While browsing a charming old bookstore in Uptown, in south Minneapolis, Sarah suggested Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy. Since it was only a few dollars, I picked it up.

I’m a little less than halfway through it, and I must say I am enjoying it. I don’t know why people say that Tolstoy is a slow read…he gets bogged down in details sometimes, but that helps me envision the characters and story.

I’m trying to read as many books as I can this summer, I just wish I had more time. If you want to suggest something to me, leave a comment. I know Tiffany will give me at least one book. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Yes, yes…here is the title of the book I was telling you about last night: “Rise of the Creavite Class” by Richard Florida. Again, I have not read it yet, but Kari C. highly recommends it. Enjoy!

  2. yes, yes. i highly recommend it for anyone interested in creativity, business, economics, progression of human thought.

  3. oh yeah, and everytime i listen to marketplace on npr they talk about themes that are in the book. alan greenspan apparently said this is the age of ideas and that economic survival requires individuals to be innovative and not rely on manufacturing to make their money. i also heard a report on marketplace that the only jobs likely to not be exported are those having to do with the creation of culture — i.e. creative work. okay, sorry this is such a long comment. i get excited about this stuff.

  4. One of my favorites books. ๐Ÿ™‚

    ..just stopping by to say hi, I haven’t been online in a while. I hope you’re doing great.

  5. One of the half dozen books I’m currently reading which was highly recommended to me by Knight of Baha’u’llah Howard Menking is “Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ” by Daniel Goleman. Howard states that it requires Emotional Intelligence to successfully teach the Faith heart-to-heart, and he requires reading of this book for those who wish to receive Teacher Training from him. I’m not even halfway thru, and already highly recommend it! Happy Summer Reading!
