Motivational boost here we come

I've planned for quite a while to read some of the Russian classics and thought to start with Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky. Now that it's summer and holidays, though, I find myself indulging in The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Hypocrite's Golden Book of Manners and Dorothy Sayers detective stories...

I've been hesitant about looking around the net, I've got bitter memories from a deceptive article which spoiled the main mystery of The Name of the Rose. Out of the blue. x.x; He ought to be hanged, the ignorant journalist...
