And what better way to celebrate the festive season than with a bit of Dickens? Over at The Valve Rohan Maitzen has set-up a reading group for The Chimes (1844): not as well known as God-bless-us-every-one A Christmas Carol (1843), but interesting nevertheless. Go Valvewards, why don’t you, and check it out; feel free to contibute to the ongoing discussion. (The Everyman edition of Dickens’s Christmas Books is even edited by our very own Professor Sally Ledger). And for an added bonus, check Rich Puchalsky’s account of going up a bell tower.
Merry Christmas to all, with a ho and a ho. And (why not?) another ho. [AR]
