You have received a letter from your English-speaking pen friend Mary, who writes:
| ...In your previous letter you told me that you had joined your school Literature Club. I wonder what you do at your club meetings. Can I help you in any way? |
As for me, I enjoy reading very much and I would be really interested to know about fa¬mous Russian writers. Who is your favourite writer at the moment? Have you got enough time for reading? ...
Write back to Mary. In your letter:
December 7th, 2014
I am really glad to receive your letter. Sorry, I didn't respond to your letter right away. I’m really interested to know what have you read so far.
We love to discuss various topics and writings by Russian and foreign writers at our Literature club. It’s quite interesting. You can send me some ideas too.
As for the Russian writers, I have been reading a lot of them too. My favorite is Pushkin and Dostoyevsky. I'm also reading Leo Tolstoi, War and Peace. It’s quite long. I think Pushkin is my favorite writer at the moment. Not enough, but I try to find some time for it.
Which Russian authors have your read so far? Which is your favorite one? Do you have a literature club at your school?
Actually, I’ve got to go now. My mum’s calling me for dinner.
Write me when you can!
