| Sing and dance for Dickens! »
In the last installment, just as we were about to see Barnaby meet his fate, Dickens cruelly whisked us away to the Willet household and some more romantic moments. Will we get back to Barnaby this week? Read chapters 79 and 80 to find out!

Wow, even if I hadn't quit early on like I had, I seriously don't think I would have made it this far! (I thought it ended in October?!) Kudos to those of you who kept with it, I'll still get around to reading BR one of these days. ♥

Haha! I thought I would not be able to stick with it, but I ended up finishing the book over the summer. It actually was pretty good! But I could never have kept up with the installments and remembered everything that happened previously. I guess that says something about contemporary audiences.

Don't sell yourself short, Nina! You're a Dickensian. We laugh in the face of 82-chapter books. ;-)
Holly, I tried to follow something like three or four installments of a detective story in a magazine, and ended up losing track! Sad, huh? And I haven't been checking my BR schedule faithfully, just assigning two chapters a week, which I think was correct. But we could be off by a month for all I know.

According to the following link, you are right on schedule. Chapters 79 & 80 were first released on November 20, 1841. There were only two exceptions to the two chapters per week mode, and none since March 27. So it looks as if you've been on track the whole time. Good job, Gina.

By the way, I see that the reference to the original publication schedule is due to our friend David Perdue. I've spent some time on his website and I can vouch for its being consistently well written and full of interesting tidbits that aren't easily found elsewhere.
