48 Pages Per Day

I’m reading again in Russian, everyone. This is a Big Deal because for the past two (or three?) months, I have not read much in Russian. I haven’t read many Russian websites and I definitely haven’t read any books in Russian. I honestly haven’t done much with the Russian language at all as of late.

This is what I’m currently reading:

Соавторы
“Coauthors” by Alexandra Marinina

It’s a long book, but I’ve calculated that if I read just forty-eight pages per day, I’ll finish it in ten days. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Reading in Russian is a struggle for me. I can’t go as fast as I do in English and my vocabulary isn’t as good. So, the whole time I’m reading, I’m struggling with the idea that I could be reading in English. Not only that, but I could be reading science fiction in English. There are Star Wars books to be read, for goodness sakes!

But I’ve got to read this. I need to read more in Russian and I’m trying to work my way through my book stash. I don’t own a ton of Russian books, but at the pace I read, it’ll take me a while to get through them!
