So I said I would post about what books I am going to read for the Charles Dickens Reading challenge. You can click the button on the side to learn more. I am really really excited about this challenge! I really feel I should read more Dickens, but just have not had the push I needed to actually do it. I think this is the push.
But Anyway, I will now tell you about what I am going to read
Little Dorrit:I have always wanted to read Little Dorrit. I have heard so many good Things about it, but I am only few chapters in, and can’t seem to get motivated to read it. I think the Challenge will motivate me to finish it.
David Copperfield: I don’t know very much about this book, but I keep seeing the name, and want to do know what it is about. I find it interesting how Charles Dickens liked to use names as titles. Not all his books had titles that were names but the books that did have name titles, where names that grabbed your attention.
A Tale Of Two Cities: My piano teacher told me this was her favorite Dickens book, and I have heard a lot about it. The title sounds interesting. Like a story that a grandfather might tell his grandkids around the fire place.
Great Expectations: My mother read this book aloud to us a long time ago, and I wanted to read it again because I liked it so much! And there will be a movie, and a BBC series, coming out, and I want to read it before I watch either.
A Christmas Carol: I am ashamed to say I have not read this. I say I will read it, but then I don’t. I have seen several versions of the story(the Muppets are my favorite:) but never actually read the book. Well I am going to read it now!
What books are you going to read this year? (any books, not just Dickens)
