Dickens in December

Hello all! I wanted to do a quick post about a reading event I plan to take part in this December. Caroline and Delia are hosting a Dickens in December event. Many of you may remember that I said I wanted to read ten novels by Dickens this year. I started off well and cruised through (as much as you can cruise through Dickens) six novels. And then I hit a wall. I took a break. I’ve realized that getting through the last four probably won’t happen this year. But I’m hoping to finish two more this December. I plan on reading A Tale of Two Cities and A Christmas Carol, which leaves Great Expectations and Our Mutual Friend for 2013. Caroline and Delia are hosting a readalong of A Christmas Carol that will take place on the 21st. If you love Dickens or if you want to read him for the first time, check out their event and join in on the fun. It isn’t limited to reading, but also watching movies based on his books.

    Hope you have fun reading Dickens in December, TBM! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on ‘A Christmas Carol’ and ‘A Tale of Two Cities’. ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ used to be one of the favourite novels in my home when I was a child and we all used to discuss it.
