Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812 in Portsmouth, England. And I am among the millions of readers who are grateful.
Of course, sentimental reader that I am on occasion, I love his A Christmas Carol and the transformation of Scrooge most. That said, how can any reader not enjoy his many books including Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, Nickolas Nickleby, Bleak House, and Hard Times.
An extravagance I usually don’t allow myself, I have purchased Charles Dickens complete works – and it is with great pleasure I open the volume and settle into the detailed and sometimes grim world of Dickens.
So Happy Birthday, Charles Dickens – and thanks! For more information on Dickens, check out this link.
