If it wasn't a ladies group I think I'd move to Colorado and join just to protest this rule!

I'm not saying that Russian novels aren't valuble, but we're trying to have fun.  There's a reason the suicide rate is so high in Russia.

They could be lots of fun - if you drink enough vodka whilst reading them.
