Happy 200th Birthday, Charles Dickens

Today is Charles Dickens' birthday, he would have been 200 years old today! In celebration of Dickens' birthday, Google posted this awesome logo. This is my absolute favorite Google logo, ever.



Dickens is unique because I think everyone has a favorite Dickens work, even if they've never read a single word he wrote. Every single person who has ever enjoyed A Christmas Carol as enjoyed Dickens' work. For me, my absolute favorite Dickens novel is Great Expectations,but A Tale of Two Cities is near the top of my reading list.  So tell me, what's your favorite Dickens work?

Happy Birthday, Mr. Dickens. The world wouldn't be, or have been, the same without you!!

  5. My class reads "A Christmas Carol" every year. Best line ever: "Every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart." Worst line: "He was very much attached to me, was Dick." Try getting through THAT one with a crowded classroom of twelve and thirteen year olds.

  6. I think it's great that you have Jr. High kids reading Dickens. Everyone needs a little Dickens in their life! I agree about the best line. The worst line just made me laugh my behind off!! :D
