Dickens Project

“Sophie” of A Reasonable Quantity of Butter and I have decided to read through the novels of Charles Dickens in chronological order and to blog about them together. I had already read through them all, except The Pickwick Papers (which omission I have now rectified). However, as I read most of them as a child, I thought that it would be enjoyable to return to them and see what I think of them now. I will link to my own and Sophie’s reviews here as they go up. I am also planning on reading a biography of Charles Dickens, and might post a review of that sometime or other. Here is Sophie’s introductory post: The Dickens Project.
