Drat! I read Copperfield, Pickwick and A Tale of Two Cities in the summer between 8th and 9th grades and the rest during 9th grade. I could have been a college professor if I had only gotten started a few months earlier!

I love these! I especially love the one about the "spirited and dramatic reading of 'Oliver Twist.' :)

Aw, I didn't much care for Dickens in 8th grade. :( Sorry Boz! But I was in love by 10th grade...hopefully that counts!

It most certainly counts! :-)

Oh, I overlooked #4 on this list, and I bring it up because I forgot to mention to you that, interestingly, the BBC recently did a miniseries on a few select pre-Raphaelites and Dickens makes an appearance. Here's the link:

AND he's played by the actor who is Thomas Brown (one of my favorite characters) on Lark Rise to Candleford (one of my favorite shows)! The actor's name?

Mark HEAP. Mwahaha!

I can't remember when I first read Carol and Two Cities. Those were the only ones I read until after college.
