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!!
