Today, were he still alive, Charles Dickens would be 200 years old. Happy Birthday!
In honor of Mr. Dickens, here are a few photos from a walking tour I took in London.
This is a bust near the building where Dickens lived.
A close-up of the text underneath the bust.
This was at the location of the residence, sort of across the courtyard (if I remember correctly) from the bust.
To celebrate Dickens' birthday, it might be a good time to revisit some of his novels. Although if you want manage 50 books this year, you might begin with a short one. Here is a list works by Charles Dickens, courtesy of Wikipedia. Some of my favorites, include Little Dorrit, David Copperfield and, of course, A Christmas Carol. Do you have any favorites?
