I downloaded a copy of Tolstoy’s War and Peace with bonus material, Give War and Peace a Chance by Andrew D. Kaufman on my Kindle months ago.
I read pages and pages of introductory material. Near the end, one of the readers, “a Chicago heiress, Miss Mary Landon Baker, …said, ‘I should like to live my life over again, in order to have once again the pleasure of reading War and Peace for the first time!'”
The translator, Aylmer Maude wrote a preface and he quoted Miss Baker.
That got me thinking that I did not want to begin that epic tale at the end of a busy day when my energy level was not at it’s peak.
With my lifestyle, it won’t be a continuous read anyway.
