Why yes, Keith Richards did name his guitar after a Dickens character. 😁

From the Charles Dickens Museum. A letter in which Dickens states that the "finished Nickleby at last". ?
A late Happy 4th of July to all my American Litsy friends here🤗❤️ And Happy Birthday to my mom who turned 82! July is the busiest month for me, besides my own birthday, it's also most of my family members birthday as well so many celebration & preparations! For me, all I want is book& more books!📚 But sadly none of them are readers so I have no idea what to get them!🙈
Heres late #ColorMePretty #RedWhiteAndBlue
Friends! It‘s my birthday! I ate the world‘s best burger for lunch (at Nick‘s Inn in Headingly. If you can go, do; they‘ve got vegan stuff now, too), watched culinary documentaries, and hung out with awesome people.
I also got two literary presents: a great, conversational cookbook from the 70s and a can of Miss Havisham Regrets from Stone Angel Brewing Co. It‘s a bitter, of course. I‘ll drink it in a couple days and report back.
I get it now. David Copperfield is a long book, don‘t get me wrong, but I devoured the thing like a drunk woman eating a kebab. Every word is purposeful, every character is a delectable caricature, every element of the story is consistent and compelling, and every emotion beautifully captured and rendered. In my humble opinion, it‘s his chuck-a-bit-of-everything style that makes this such an incredible book... #FavoriteBooks #ClassicReads
I love a bit of Dickens!
