February 7th marks what would have been Charles Dickens’s 200th birthday. In honor of this event, the blog Fig and Thistle is hosting a Charles Dickens Month in January. Considering that I am reading ten novels by him this year (or at least I am going to attempt to) I decided to join this event. It isn’t the normal reading challenge. Instead, the host asks the participants to post something about Dickens every Tuesday in January, which is a total of five. Anything about the writer counts, such as books, short stories, films, or tidbits about his life. The host will have a giveaway as well. The stipulation is that you actually post something about Dickens.
I’m hoping that this post will count for the first of the five Tuesdays.
