Hello readers! In case you were not aware, February 2012 marks Charles Dickens’ 200th Birthday (on February 7th)!
In honor of this wonderful bicentennial extravenganza, events are being held world-wide. If you are interested in looking at some of the events, you can go to this link: Dickens 2012.
As for me, I have decided that this month I am going to read a Charles Dickens novel. And the winner is:
This is a novel I read parts of when it was assigned my freshman year of high school. And why they expected honors high school freshmen to actually read this hefty novel, I don’t know. I don’t think anyone in my grade actually finished this. But it has been sitting on my shelf ever since, and I have always wanted to finish it, so what better a time than to celebrate the birth of this classic and influential author. So throughout this month, I will be tackling this novel, and hopefully I will finish before the end of the month, but we will see.
Anyone want to join in Dickens 2012? Let me know!
Love and dusty books,
