“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, . . .”

I had an awesome Jr High English experience. I had a class that was dedicated to reading Great Expectations. I think I was more lost in that book than I have ever been before or since. Just thinking about it takes me into Miss Havishams cobweb covered dining hall.

A Christmas Carol is one of my 5 favorite stories, along with Hamlet, Ulysses, Harry Potter, and Pinocchio.

We read A Christmas Carol yearly (at least) and watch various versions of it regularly.

I’m gonna go with A Christmas Carol. I saw at least 4 versions of it last year, including the one with Mr. Magoo! I need to bust out the book again.

A Tale of Two Cities and David Copperfield.

A Tale of Two Cities is my favorite. I read it in elementary school, and I remember being awed by it and terrified of its contents at the same time.
