A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

When I was looking at audiobook versions before Christmas, I discovered this Word Cloud Classics print edition and had to have it. My indie bookstore got a copy for me Christmas Eve, but I was not about to brave that traffic, so I picked it up today. Isn‘t it beautiful? I can‘t wait until next December to read all the stories in it. 💚❤️💚❤️💚

I‘d seen plenty of incarnations on film, but had never sat down to read the book itself. It‘s much better than any representation on film or stage. Also, hats off to Dickens for his lovely use of the English language.

I just finished reading this to the kiddo, her first time and my…third? This afternoon we‘re going to watch the Muppet Christmas Carol, which I‘ve never seen. I do love the Muppet Twelve Days of Christmas, though.

Cosyreader What did you think of the Muppet Christmas Carol? I try to watch it every year. This is my first time reading the book though. 5mo
ravenlee @Cosyreader we enjoyed it! I don‘t know if we‘ll make it a tradition, but we had a good time. In true super-reader fashion, kiddo kept pointing out discrepancies (“wait, why are there TWO Marleys?! In the book there‘s only one!”) 😆. She did ask if we‘re going to read the book every year, because she thinks we should. 5mo

Cold cold COLD 🥶 and all I‘m interested in doing is listening to audiobooks while sitting as close as possible to space heaters. So, after reading Afterlife of Holly Chase, the OG sounded perfect. This version was read by Jim Dale, and it was great.
Let‘s see if I can pack in any more #wintergames books!

This version is an Audible original read by Hugh Grant. The story is of course the same as any other version of Dickens‘ book, so the difference lies in the narrator. Hugh Grant is perfectly fine, but he suffers in comparison to Tim Curry, Neil Gaiman, and Patrick Stewart, who all narrate other versions. I would still recommend it. Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope your day is wonderful and full of great reading, food, and fun.

Christmas Eve is the only night of the year that I like to stay up late. Everyone else has been asleep for hours and I‘m finally winding down with this version read by Jim Dale.

PageShifter I love this story! I watched the movie every Christmas at some point and last year I also saw theater version of it! Covid made it impossible to see it live but I bought tickets to see it via stream. It was so good and amazing like that as well! I finally even read the book last year :D And I also loved a re-telling that was based on this story. 😆 5mo

Almost every year I listen to this story, but this was the first year I found the Hugh Grant version. Great performance!

This year my daughter and I did a ton of baking since I took the week before Christmas off. When your family has gluten, dairy, egg and nut allergies it‘s no small feat!

Texreader No kidding! Please share recipes! I‘ve got the best gluten and dairy free cookie recipe ever. I posted it a couple weeks ago but I‘ll be making them again tomorrow I hope if you want me to post it. 5mo
BookInMyHands @Texreader I would love to see that recipe! For most of these I used cookies recipes from the “Nora Cooks” blog and substituted Bob‘s Red Mill 1 to 1 flour. Her blog is Vegan, so it works for everything else, except the nuts, but that‘s pretty easy. I also found Schar‘s GF crackers that are close to Ritz and used Sun butter between them before coating with melted chocolate chips (3 cups) and coconut oil (3 tbsp) mixed together in a double boiler. 5mo
BookInMyHands @Texreader Oh, I also found Sun butter cups at the store to make Sun butter blossoms for my peanut allergy kiddo. He LOVED them. For that one I just adapted my old Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie recipe. 5mo

The true meaning of Christmas: ghosts scaring your boss into compassion, empathy, and good works.

Two very different productions. Both equally delightful. Tim Curry imparts an appropriate level of spooky depth to this ghost story, while Patrick Stewart manages to convey all of the gravitas of his on screen Scrooge entirely through audio. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

I read some books, so what should I do to make them count for our team? @Clwojick

Clwojick There‘s a breakdown depending on which books you read. 25 pts if the book mentions Christmas, New Years, winter, Hanukkah etc. 15pts if it‘s a book on your TBR or one you‘ve been wanting to read. 10 pts for a new to you/impulse read. You also get 10 points per hour read during any Readathon you participate in this month. 5mo

I‘m really trying to avoid patronizing Amazon in any way, but I saw this version of A Christmas Carol narrated by Hugh Grant and really wanted to try it. I usually listen to Jim Dale‘s narration which has a joy and lightness to it. Grant‘s narration is more subdued, but I really liked it and it suited my mood perfectly. Dang it, Audible.

I‘ve lost track of how many times I‘ve read this Christmas favorite. The first was in 7th grade. It‘s still a great classic to pull out and dust off for a re-read. I make a point of watching my favorite film version, The Muppet Christmas Carol every year.

Johanna414 The Muppet Christmas Carol is clearly the best adaptation!!

Well, I finished my yearly Christmas tradition! 🥳 I know everyone prolly knows this story, but if you haven‘t read the original novella, please do yourself a favor and do so. It‘s a 10/10 book. Literally perfect. Humorous, heartwarming, and uplifting; one of the greatest stories ever imo, and I‘m not even a big fan of Dickens. Love revisiting this little story every Christmas.

And remember: “God bless us, every one!” 😘
