I'm totally geeking out right now! Ask any of my co-workers, I am babbling at a mile a minute!
All because I discovered the coolest website EVER!!!!! - Lib.Ru - that is all I need to be happy in this world.
This site is a collection of Russian stories, in the original Russian, and by famous Russian authors. Not to mention the interesting, if eclectic, assortment of international authors (now I know where to go to read Emily Dickinson's Poems in Russian).
For the class I've been helping out with, I needed to find the last paragraph of White Nights in order to take a look at a particular tense change. That is how I stumbled upon this site - bam!
Not only does it have the full text of many classic and new Russian tales, it provides links to secondary sources in Russian about the works and the authors.
And now I am totally convinced that I am going to be studying Russian a lot more with the help of this site.
Eeeek! Massive geeking!
