The Reading Room

If one can be 'in love' with a virtual place, I might just have to confess my utter adoration of the new Reading Room in the NY Times Books section. I mean, of course, the first book they choose to discuss is War and Peace, which I've never read because I have a hard time with the Russians, but just the idea of paying that much attention to the greatness of a book is enough to do it for me.

Truly, the blogging community is one virtual reading room where we have brilliant (if I do say so myself) and opinionated discussions about books everyday, but there's something just so classy and towering about this new feature that makes me want to dust off my shelves and pull out my RRHB's beat up copy of War and Peace just so I can see what all the fuss is still about.

Thanks for the heads up on this. What a fantastic discussion going on over there.

Now where is my copy of War and Peace?
