The first book off the shelf made me sigh a little to loudly and pause a little too long. While I’m sure it will be worth reading, I’m going to wait a while before I start it. Instead, I decided to go with The Pickwick Papers. This book makes me think of Little Women, and the things they do inspired by this work of Dickens. A Tale of Two Cities is one of my all-time favorite books, but I have a feeling that this one is going to be pretty different.
My copy is beautiful and old, purchased from a library sale a few years ago. It was printed in 1950 and smells like coziness and time. I’ll start it tonight. :)
