Read and Reviewed:
The Shadows of Berlin, by Dovid Bergelson. Great for readers interested in Jewish literature.
A Mountain of Crumbs, by Elena Gorokhova. A wonderful memoir.
The Ladies from St. Petersburg, by Nina Berberova. A moving collection of short stories.
The Dacha Husband, by Ivan Shcheglov. A bitingly satirical novella about the bourgeoisie.
There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried To Kill Her Neighbor's Baby: Scary Fairy Tales, by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya. Does what it says on the label.
Ruts and Gullies: Nine Days in St. Petersburg, by Philippe Girard. A cute graphic novel.
The Accompanist, by Nina Berberova. A somewhat disturbing novella.
A&A's Movie A Day Reviews "Night Watch," based on the novel by Sergei Lukyanenko. Part 1 by Andy and Part 2 by Amanda.
I also finished Moscow 2042, by Vladimir Voinovich; look for a review sometime in early December. I tried reading Victor Pelevin's novel The Sacred Book of the Werewolf but have put it aside for now.

Also, thank you to everyone who commented on Russo-Biblio-Extravaganza. I have enough left in my stash for another month-or-two-or-three- of Russian books. Let's do it again sometime!
