A WOMAN has set aside an entire day to binge-read at least five pages of Tolstoy’s War & Peace.
Josephine Turner, who considers herself an intellectual because of her many HBO box-sets, plans to spend 10 straight hours burning through a ‘hefty chunk’ of the Russian epic.
She said: “I did the first two series of Breaking Bad in a day and that’s seriously heavy stuff, so how hard can this be?
“Apparently it’s pretty gripping, like The Wire, and has loads of characters, so I’m going to assign a different actor to each one and keep notes in the front.”
After eight minutes with the book, Turner found the name Tolstoy was distracting her by reminding her of the Toy Story trilogy, which she is now watching back-to-back.
