Online Project: Leo Tolstoy‘s Bookshelf


“They say one should read a lot, but not many books,“ remarked the ancient Roman writer Pliny the Younger. Leo Tolstoy’s reading list illustrates this saying very well. The author’s eldest son, Sergey Tolstoy, remembered that his father “was able to read, which not everyone is capable of.” He remembered what he had read very well and distinguished the books that should be read without any omissions and abridgements, from the ones from which only what is essential should be taken.
