Yesterday was the 200th birthday of prolific writer, Charles Dickens. Happy Birthday, Charles! His birthday celebration took place around the world!
Dickens' birthday was celebrated all over the web yesterday, including on the Google icon!
Most people by the time they reach adulthood, will have read at least one Dickens novel, probably it is Great Expectations. High school students either love or hate being assigned Great Expectations. In my case, more than 40 years later, I still remember the effect that the description of Miss Havisham's home had on me! Powerful writing! Look for Dickens' novels in F DIC. Or, you can download copies on your ereader at Project Gutenberg.
