  1. I've been meaning to read Pickwick Papers for awhile now. Its probably the only major work by Dickens that I haven't read yet.I didn't know that it was his first.

  2. Thanks for writing, CHE! I enjoyed PICKWICK PAPERS in school and I intend re-reading some of Dickens' works soon. An occasional classic or two between a series of pulp and popular fiction is like a breath of fresh air.

  3. Dickens is for me also associated with school along with Thomas Hardy, Shakespeare and Jane Austen. Time to go back.

  4. Mystica, all so true. Classics are a classic, aren't they? Thank you for the visit.
