2 “There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts”, Oliver Twist

  1. Number 8 is becoming increasingly relevant these days…Dickens will always be one of the greatest writers and your showcasing of quotations proves that.

  2. Number 2 is definitely the best. Although I like no. 1 too. I’ve been meaning to read that book again for a while.

  3. Hello, welcome to my blog. I agree, 4th is of special significance. I think that many people focus on their misfortunes rather than appreciate what they have. Sometimes we need to get more mature to understand what really matters 🙂


  4. I love Charles Dicken’s work and, at this time of year I especially love to re-visit A Christmas Carol. Sometimes it’s one of the many film versions or an old Paperback copy I have to read. For me, it is very much a part of Christmas!
