Found it!

Right after I wrote about it, I thought about having dinner at a Thai place a few weeks ago near the office on my way to rehearsal and reading there. I stopped by and they had it! They kept it!  My copy!

I'm very happy.  So reading will re-commence.

With Moscow burning, Andrei and Natasha reunited, and Pierre arrested.

The Awful Truth

I went to the laundromat this afternoon where I think I left the book.  That was the last place I remember reading it.  I thought I had put it in my car as always.  After a year of carting it in my car, in and out of the office, doctors' offices, Starbucks, restaurants of every type and variety, I can't find my War & Peace.

It's addled me.  I am at Volume IV, Book I, Chapter 4.  I only have the last volume and two epilogues to go - only about 250 pages. I could go out and buy another copy, but it doesn't feel right.  I'm giving myself another week or so to find it.

Obviously more than a year as the title indicates, but very close to finishing. I have to know what happens.  And I miss everyone.
