Reflections

Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Three day quote challenge--day 3. This is kind of a cheat because it's a reblog of a quote I posted in the summer, but war and Peace is one of my all time favorite books and this snippet captures some of what I love. Thank you again, Brokentune.

About the challenge:

I'm supposed to nominate 3 other Booklikes bloggers to take up the three day challenge, but I'm just going to leave it open for anyone else who wants to give it a go. Here are the rules:

Rules:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.

2. Publish a quote on 3 consecutive days on your blog. The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires.

3. Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavor.
Reblogged from Reflections:
"They wept because they were friends; and because they were kind; and because they, who had been friends since childhood, were concerned with such a mean subject--money; and because their youth was gone ... But for both of them they were pleasant tears ..."
War and Peace - Larissa Volokhonsky, Richard Pevear, Leo Tolstoy

Impoverished widow Anna Mikhailovna accepts 700 roubles from her dear friend Countess Rostov so she can purchase her son's military uniform.
