Russian Literature

What started as a challenge by Keely from ACHAEMENIDS turned out to be a new project. I am going to read all the books in the original list and then create a new one for following years. Since it is going rather slowly I put no time limits, only that at least 5-6 books should be read per year.
      I have a huge list of books I want to read. In my list I have mostly classics from  19th century with some exceptions. It will eventually lead me in the future to Russian modern writers and namely the Russian Booker Prize winners and nominees.
