kaitlin_alfermann At first I was annoyed that the baby woke me up at 5:00. Then I realized I could be drinking coffee alone while reading by the light of the Christmas tree. Thanks baby. My heart, my cup, and my womb are so #full. #holylens #kristinlavransdatter 2mon

theskepticalreaderslibrary Latest purchase: Day 10 of #SeasonsReadings hosted by @penguinukbooks. I’m not exactly certain what I last purchased but these are the latest arrivals in my mailbox. I bought the 2 on the left (Pale Fire and Kristin Lavransdatter) and the 4 on the right are textbooks for next semester sent from my brother. #VladimirNabokov #PaleFire #KristinLavransdatter #PenguinClassics #Classics #VirginiaWoolf #GeorgeEliot #ElizabethGaskell #FrancesBurney #WomensLiterature #SigridUndset #PenguinDeluxe #Books #Bookstagram 3mon

janegmeyer My dilemma. Whether to slug on, or drop the book back in the library bin. Rarely do I abandon a book, but Kristin Lavransdatter is 1048 pages and I'm only at 497. I am interested in Scandinavia for many reasons right now, and this book is an interesting glimpse into a long ago world, but the description, and the names! Ack 4mon
  •   airagui I loved that book!! However I stopped about 100 pages before it ended and just scanned the rest! I thought that part of its slowness was the charm of following a person through their whole life... 4mon
  •   ariellegj Do you have the newer translation? Tiina Nunally or something like that? I adore that book and highly recommend you finish, but the translation makes a difference. I also found it helpful to have it in three volumes. 4mon
  •   janegmeyer Oh @airagui I've heard others say they loved it, which is why I continue to plod along. 4mon
  •   janegmeyer @airagui the translation I have is by some Arthur fellow. I will go on a hunt to find another version and carry on! Thank you for the encouragement 4mon
  •   airagui Yes, I read the Tiina Nunnally translation. Translators matter! Can't read Russian lit without Volokhonsky and Pevear!! 4mon

powerpuffkay As per @haleycarrots recommendation, I ordered this book last week. Then just yesterday, I read her full blogpost w more info stating it's quite hefty. Girl, you weren't lying! I didn't even know what the package was when I received it today, it was so heavy lolololz. But I'm not gonna say no to a #badass female protagonist, so here goes! 😎 #powerpuffkay #book #read #reading #fall #classic #kristinlavransdatter #sigridundset 5mon
  •   haleycarrots You got the good translation! Omg, it's so good. 5mon
