summer reading

I finally started working on one of my paper's today. This one is about Simon Dimanshtein, from 1918-1924. If anyone knows Russian or Yiddish, I sure would appreciate the help. I sat at a microfilm machine for two and a half hours. Not fun. But had lunch with another graduate student. Interaction is nice.

Trying to decide what to read next. I know it's summer and I should pick light reading, but I'm tempted to start Dostoevsky's Raw Youth. I started it once, but it was during a semester, so I didn't finish it. I remember it being very good. I'll let you know.

Well, I suppose I should work on my paper some more. A grad student's work is never done.
