Some of dickens most lovable and hilarious characters
Tea, pjs, banana bread and Dickens. Peak Sunday vibes 🙌🏻
Bookish goodies (and a bunch of toys in the background)!
Merry Christmas litsyland!
Still clearing out bookshelves, and came across this classic that I read a few years ago. I truly believe that many young people dislike classics because they are too young to appreciate them when they‘re more or less forced to read them. Hubby says you have to be a father to truly appreciate Silas Marner. Anyway, if you would like to have this, let me know😄
My gran loved reading more than anything, and she was always delighted that I shared her passion. My gran recently passed away and I kept a handful (ahem, 26) of her books, to read and to remember her by. Problem is, I just realised I‘ve broken my ‘can‘t have more than 350 books in this house that I haven‘t yet read‘ rule.
Current owned TBR = 374. Oops.
The only thing I remember about this one from college is the entire class saying, “Nope.” We ended up reading only small sections of it. I still own the book and it would be interesting to go back now to try to read it - I think.

I‘m so excited about this gift from @Sarah83 that arrived today! I was a winner of her #maylovesclassics giveaway. I will definitely look forward to reading Little Dorrit and the bookmark “I Like Big Books And I Cannot Lie” is perfect!! Thanks so much Sarah 😍😘💖!!
I have stayed away from his chunksters for years, but I really think I should tackle at least one of them soonish. Which chunkster by Dickens should I start with and why?
This is still TBR for me but just discovered Andrew Davies made a series of it with Claire Foy (Queen Elizabeth in the Crown) as #AmyDorrit so I guess it‘s TBW now as well. #DickensianDecember @jenniferw88
I managed to do a 4 year Scottish degree in English Lit and totally avoid Dickens. I read Great Expectations in my mid teens and HATED it. So this is the only Dickens I own. #TBRsomeday maybe a considerable number of additional years will change my mind. Yet another chunkster #Ilikebigboks
#readJanuary. This is my definitive #slowread, but it was so absolutely worth it. I have this weird relationship with Dickens. My favorite of his books is Bleak House, yet I've never been able to get through Great Expectations, and I've tried multiple times. This, though, is probably in my top ten classics.
Ein Buch,das ich in zwei Sprachen besitze. Beide Ausgaben #einesKlassikersdenichnochnichtgelesenhabe sind ausgefallen. Die deutsche Ausgabe ist in Sütterlin geschrieben & die englische Ausgabe ist aus dem #BuecherdorfHayonWye 😍
A photo of a book which I possess in two languages. Both editions of #aclassicihaventread are special. The german edition is written in 'sütterlin' which is an old writing & the english one I bought in #HayonWye 😍
Repeated themes of imprisonment, false appearances and the mixed up conception of respectability. Every Dickens novel is a masterpiece to me, but in my opinion, this lacks the heart of some of his other novels.
