Little Dorrit
Little Dorrit | Charles Dickens
As for many of Dickens' novels, highlighting social injustices is at the heart of Little Dorrit. His father was imprisoned for debt, and Dickens' shines a spotlight on the fate of many who are unable to repay a debt when the ability to seek work is denied. Amy Dorrit is the youngest daughter of a man imprisoned for debt and is working as a seamstress for Mrs Clennam when Arthur Clennam crosses her path. Will the sweet natured Amy win Arthur's heart? And will they ever escape the shadow of debtors' prison?

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😄

Caroline2 I totally agree! I don‘t know why they force old “classics” on teenagers then they wonder why teenagers think all books are boring and don‘t want to read! 🙄 11mo

Lynnsoprano @umbrellagirl OMG! I hadn‘t realized that! I saw the series on PBS about 10 years ago. I never made the connection. 11mo

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.

DebbieGrillo I'd say the 26 of your Gran's don't count. By those rules, you can buy two more. 12mo

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 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

Bambolina_81 I love Dickens and Great Expectations is my least favourite too! Little Dorrit and Bleak House are my favourites - they are chunksters but the characters are fantastic and really pull you through the stories. 2y
Balibee146 Thanks @Bambolina_81 I spent ages in the bookshop working out which sounded good. Sounds like I picked a good one. Thanks.... Looking forward to trying it now :-) 2y

PatriciaU My best and favorite place is on the shore of Black Lake in the western foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in NYS. Thanks for the tag @MrBook (edited) 2y
SpeculativeFemale My favorites include my oversized chair, my bathtub, and anywhere shady with a good breeze that I can set up my camp chair. Since our local state parks are both along rivers or streams, there are lots of nice little shady areas with cool breezes coming off the water. 2y
LeahBergen I love to read in the chair in my own little library. A close second would be reading in bed or reading in the bath (I have a giant tub 😄). Thanks for the tag, @MrBook 😘 2y
mahra_butt Rocking chairs seem to be a favourite here! Followed by the bath tub 😀 2y
Smangela @mahra_butt gorgeous picture ? what a magical spot! Favorite spots are generally just a comfy chair anywhere. Whenever we find our "forever home" my goal is to have a reading nook ❤️❤️ thanks for tagging me @MrBook :) 2y
Sue Thanks for the tag @MrBook I love reading at the beach or our local dam, or on my couch with my kitties. 2y
tpixie @mahra_butt that is such a lovely, majestic place! I love to read on my back porch listening to the rustling of leaves 🍃 and sometimes the deer 🦌 come out. Twice I've seen a fox 🦊!! I like to read with my feet up!! My porch chairs have ottomans. My 2nd favorite spot is my chair in the living room (lol with an ottoman). Thx @MrBook for the tag!! 2y
Reecaspieces I will read anywhere. Car,bathtub,work,ballgame. But my favorite place is outside. Anywhere outside. I sit on my back deck in the morning and I have a little sitting area under shade trees that I use the rest of the time. I do have a reading spot inside (waiting on my new reading chair). Thanks for the tag @MrBook 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I read in my great-grandmothers swan-arm rocker quite often. Or just propped up in bed or on the couch! Audiobooking however happens everywhere! 📚📚😎😎 2y
britt_brooke @mahra_butt Stunning photo! 💚 Thanks for the tag @MrBook - I'll read pretty much anywhere, but my daily favorite is in bed after the kids are asleep! 2y
LibrarianJen @MrBook thanks for the mention! I would have to say right now it's where ever I can find 5 minutes of peace and quiet! Most of my reading haunts are outdoors, around the university or in the mountains. However there are also a couple breweries whose ambiance are great for reading as well as a few coffee shops. Anywhere with a fireplace and comfy chairs will do. 2y
Lola I'm definitely an anywhere reader, but some of my favorites spots are the bath, my reading nook, poolside, and the park. Thanks for the tag @MrBook 🙂 2y
Cupofjo Thanks @MrBook ... I will read anywhere! But my favorite spots are the back patio couch or bed with a hot or cold coffee near by! 2y
melbeautyandbooks My favorite at home spots are my bed or couch. I travel a lot for work so I also read a lot on planes with my noise canceling headphones- and people still try to talk to me 😡. Thanks for the tag @MrBook 😊 2y
batsy That's a gorgeous pic. My fav reading spot is actually any comfortable chair. Boring, I know 😊 2y
becausetrains My favorite place is anywhere I can concentrate enough to get sucked into a book, especially moving places. Airplanes are good, buses are ok, trains are a lot better 😉 but really, anywhere that people aren't trying to get my attention and there are few distractions like nice scenery. 2y
TheLondonBookworm I'll read anywhere and everywhere! Currently I'm tucked up on a corner sofa of a hostel in Tralee, Ireland enjoying my evening post surfing in the Irish Sea! But my favourite place is tucked in my parents sofa corner - best sofa in the world!!!!! 2y

#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.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I tried this but got tied up in the government bureaucracy part, it was brilliant, but I couldn't make it through. I think a lot of times it's the size of the font that gets me...I don't know. 2y
CrowCAH I loved watching the TV movie, with Clair Foy (spelling?)!!! Then I listened to the book and it was just as compelling as the movie! 2y

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.

Finishing some Dickens while I finish a hat. This is a more jaded book, I think than Bleak House. The worries over wealth and class have a more punitive tone in this story of debt, greed, and family.
