What are you reading on Mondays? - August 17

You may have noticed that The Brothers Karamazov has been on my Reading This Week list for several weeks now. The book is a chunkster, so it's going to take me a bit. But it doesn't help that I didn't actually start reading it until two days ago. And I have to say that so far, I'm not impressed. I've previously read Crime and Punishment and didn't care for it either; maybe Dostoevsky just isn't for me. I'm going to keep plugging away at this one, though, and hope for the best.

What a wonderful list of books! I have been meaning to read The Brothers Karamazov for ages (it has been sitting on my bookshelf for about 3 years now) as well as Tender is the Night. Hope you enjoy your reading this week :)
