Voted for DC and Bleak House - me two favorites. ;)

I voted for Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist, because those are two of the most popular Dickens stories, and people are more likely to read what is familiar, especially when it's a big, fat Dickens book. Then once they're hooked, they can go on to the others. :)

I voted for Great Expectations and also Christmas Carol. I think this so wonderful :).

This is such a great idea, Gina! My votes were for "Bleak House" and "David Copperfield".

I voted for Christmas Carol and Tale of Two Cities. My thinking was similar to Christy's - they are popular, entertaining works that are good choices to introduce Dickens to someone who isn't already a fan. Otherwise I would have picked my personal favorites, David Copperfield and Bleak House.

This is great...and you are a wonderful person Gina.

Aw, you're too kind! Just trying to follow Mr. Dickens's good example. :-)

I voted for Oliver Twist and Tale of Two Cities because they are more accessible to readers.

They're all, of course, great books, but Bleak House and David Copperfield are among his best works.
