Medvedev had the iPad with him at a recent meeting of the presidium of the State Council, the Council on the Arts, and the Council for Science and Technology. At the retreat, Medvedev expressed his support for electronic book readers, although he told the press that he found paper books “much more pleasant.” Medvedev commented that he initially found the iPad “impossible to read,” but later warmed up to the device to the point that he downloaded the classic Russian novel “A Hero of Our Time” for his son.

Too bad, we were hoping for some Anton Chekhov love, or at the very least, a mention of The Nose by Nikolai Gogol.
