The Best of Times

Charles Dickens' birthday is February 7th (he'd be 198!), so this is the perfect month to read or reread a favorite novel by this beloved author. Whether you're picking up a well-thumbed copy of A Tale of Two Cities at the library or investing in a beautiful book like the new Penguin Classics clothbound edition of Great Expectations, you'll find yourself captivated by Dickens' intricate plots and eccentric casts of characters. If you're interested in the man himself, check out Michael Slater's new biography, titled simply Charles Dickens. (© 2010 BookLetters, LLC )
