5 Minutes for Books's Classics Bookclub is discussing Dicken's A Christmas Carol this month and since it's one of my favourite books I'm planning to join the fun- Come and join too!
I read the book alone although I'm trying to find a copy in portuguese to give to my mother as a Christmas present. It's been a long time since I read anything else by Dickens so I don't confortable comparing it to others, I do have Bleak House in the TBR pile to read soon though. This really one of my favourite Christmas stories and I try to reread it every year. I think Dicken's really shows what should be the Christmas spirit and how it's never to late to start living it. Charity, goodwill, caring for others, sharing what you have... that is the important message for me.
