September 9: Happy Birthday, Leo Tolstoy


Leo Tolstoy, born in 1828 in Russia, is considered one of the greatest novelists ever.

I admit, while I’ve read (and loved) Anna Karenina, my copy of his most famous War and Peace has yet to be started. It is optimistically waiting in one of my books-to-read shelves though.

Ways to Celebrate Dress up in your finest and have a Russian-style Anna Karenina party with caviar, vodka, and hopefully a happier ending.

Bookswain Fact: His full name was Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, but you can call him Leo.
