Am Reading War and Peace for Fun

If the title to this post doesn't make you agree that - besides thinking me a bit loony - I must really enjoy the written word, I don't know what does.  I'm halfway through the novel - reading it on a Kindle - and am enjoying the heck out of it.  Tolstoy rules!  I'm particularly impressed how he captures the sense of people as individuals with their own lives, yet caught up in history in the making.  The book is far more readable than I ever imagined (and here, I thought it was going to be challenge for this reader ... sure, it's long ... I like that.).
