... Charles Dickens was born! I knew this is what you were waiting to hear all day. Though if you haven't already heard about it on the news, you probably visited Google today and saw the little doodle. 

So what do we know about this prolific author? Not very much actually. I mean I like Charles and all but I can't say I've read him a lot. I did read Oliver Twist again recently (as in the last year and a half recently). Perhaps in honor of his birthday I'll try and read something else... like A Christmas Carol! I have only ever seen movie versions and it might be time to come face to face with Mr. Scrooge.

Happy 200th Birthday Mr. Dickens. Happy Birthday.
