Hey, It’s Charles’ Birfday!

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,
Jennifer
