DO THE TALKING: Russian Classics

Hola again!

Here comes the scheduled Tuesday post, and, since I’m still trying hard to finish two books at the same time (probably all reviews will come in the beginning of March), let’s have a intellectual talk.

You know that I plan to use this blog to recommend you good Russian books, and I’m 110% sure you mostly heard of only Russian classics, so I’ll rant about them first.
