Happy New Year, Gina! I hope to read some Dickens in the near future, it's been too long..

Glad to see Project Gutenberg referenced in the article. Another favorite resource of mine is Librivox. I wonder if schools would assign audiobooks instead of hard copies, would that help with the language difficulty? Some classics are really best "heard," especially for the first time.

I'm really shocked that some British private schools are light on classics. I'm pretty sure most students in the U.S. have been assigned something by Hawthorne (or Twain, as the article mentions), and he's harder to read than Dickens! :)

Happy New Year, Marian! Hawthorne is WAY harder than Dickens! :-D
