Here is the detailed program of the event

Book reviews – You can choose any Dickens book you like, even books inspired by his work like Lynn Shepherd’s Tom-All-Alone’s are an option. Non-fiction on Dickens is welcome too. We will collect and add all your reviews on a page dedicated to the event. Date: 1 December – end of month.

Watchalong: You can choose any movie based on a Dickens novel. Date: 9 – 15 December

Giveaway: There will be two giveaways during 16-21 December. One will be on this, the other one on Delia’s blog.

Readalong: We decided to read A Christmas Carol.  We will send a couple of questions to those who participate. If you don’t like that approach, just post a review or your impressions and join the discussion. Date: Friday 21 December

Wrap up post: At the end of the month, the event will be wrapped up and a post containing all the links of the participants will be posted on our blogs.

Anyone who wants to join, please grab a badge and sign up in the comment form. Tell us whether you will also read along, so we can send you the questions. There is no need to tell us which books and movies you will choose but you can do so in an intro post.

  2. Hi, Caroline. I know the month of December is on its way to being over, and I didn’t register in time to participate in the Dickens Readalong (my brother often reads THE WHOLE of “A Christmas Carol” to the family at Christmas time, so I’ve temporarily had my fill of it anyway!), but just yesterday I unearthed three Dickens “anecdotes” about the police force in a neglected book of mystery stories, and I wrote a post on them this morning. I hope you don’t mind that at the end of my post I referred readers to your blog for your Readalong. I really wish I’d found the stories a month ago, but late is better than never I guess. They’re probably too short anyway for what you’re up to, but they are Dickens, so I thought I’d mention them.
