I decided I was going to read War and Peace this year after looking at the lists of books in the Reading Profile quiz. So yesterday when my husband went over to school I asked him to check it out of the library for me. He came home with a suspiciously small-looking book. Under 600 pages long.
Grrr...it was abridged! I don't read abridged books - it's a matter of principle. So I'll have to keep looking for a copy.
Meanwhile, read this hilarious post about an eighth grader choosing War and Peace as an independent reading book.
