For some reason, today's theme in the 30 days of photographs challenge is Tolstoy. As I aim to read his works in the original published language of Russian, my intention is to study the Russian language. Learning Russian will also help my communication with the in-laws and extended family and friends. Not that they don't speak English, but at gatherings with that side of the family, conversations invariably turn to Russian with me sitting there staring at the wall until my wife starts translating for me.
But then I found this book. Learn Russian in four easy steps. Unfortunately each step takes three years.
