I finished another book in Russian. I haven’t read all that many books in Russian, so this is an accomplishment. The book is called Катынское дело: проверка на русофобию [The Katyn Affair: A Check For Russophobia] by Viktor Ilyukhin, a former prosecutor and Communist Party deputy until his death in 2011. The book was interesting because it’s the first nonfiction, history-related book I’ve read in Russian. If you look at my Russian Log, you’ll see that I’ve mainly read novels so far.
And it’s on to more novel reading now. Remember when I wrote about those science fiction novels about a conflict between Russia and Ukraine? Well, I’m finally reading one of those. I’m starting with Fyodor Berezin’s Война 2010: Украинский фронт [War 2010: The Ukrainian Front]. I started reading it on my Kindle last night and so far, I really like it. It’s already giving me some ideas for my own fiction (as if I need any more ideas!).
