Reading A Masterpiece by thebookworm on 21 June 2003 5:32pm
I have just finished reading Charles Dickens Christmas Carol,I know that it seems strange to be reading such a book in the height of the summer..Have any of the other Palinites read many of Dickens books,if so which ones are the best and the easiest to read(IM JUST A SIMPLE LAD.WITH SIMPLE TASTES)....David.

Go on David!!! Tell the poor girl why you abandoned her and left her out in scary Palinland alone and without a single cream egg or wingtip to her name???????

Surely Mr Dickrel(oops sorry Dickens) has got a lot to answer for!!!,
come over here Lyn and sit on my haybale with me, you can share Christmas Dinner with me!!!, a leg or a breast dear???
David you can supply the stuffing, Tony you can do pees ok!!!(mop)


PS... I thought Mickey Mouse was great in the film!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my favorite books is Of Mice and Men. Yes i know it was written by Steinbeck and not by Dickens. hehe. I really don't like reading books like my best friend but the few books that i have read, my favorite is "Of Mice and Men" and of course "To Kill a Mockingbird". Both fantastic books and pretty easy to read. I read them in high school, so go figure:) The only time i read now is studying for exams at college. Other than that, i rarely pick up a book.

I love Dickens.
And Dikkens.

And right now I'm reading...gosh, forgot the title, silly me, but it's the one by Edith Wharton that isn't 'House of Mirth'... 'Age of Innocence,' that's it. I love Edith Wharton.

..anyone read the Michael recommended "1st ladies detective agency"...a delightful romp through Botswana with several follow-up books. not perhaps considered classic, but really entertaining and a short but fun read. think that there are now 5 of them.....try the first one at least?! enjoyable for summer reading! and of course, "mockingbird" should be on everyones list....
