Happy 200th!

Oh, Charlie (Dickens that is), it's your 200th birthday!!  Normally this would not excite me except you did write one of my favorite books of literature of all time. 

My high school English teacher was amazing at getting us all to read, and enjoy, quite a few of the great works of literature, and this was, by far, my favorite.  It's probably been 10 years since I've read it, which means that I should probably go back and do it again.  Have you read it?  Did you like it as much as I did? 

What are your favorite lit books?  My other faves are Jane Eyre, Rebecca (those two are very similar and I loved them both), The Scarlett Letter, and Gone with the Wind (does anyone NOT love this?).  Anna Kerenina and I did NOT get along (holy boring and WAY too many Russian names that are way too similar), The Great Gatsby was just okay, Wuthering Heights lost me about chapter 4, and I still have never cracked open a Jane Austen book. 


  1. Oh I loved A tale of two cities! Pride and Prejudice is another favorite of mine.

  2. The Sun Also Rises, Catcher in the Rye. Do those count?? Ha! I also liked The Great Gatsby and The Grapes of Wrath.

  3. I LOVE Rebecca! And all of Austen. Cannot stand Wuthering Heights. :)

  4. Just stumbled upon your blog and I absolutely loved this post! Rebecca was definitely one of my favorites. I feel like I should bring it out of the shelf and read it again!
