Dickens in December


Dickens in December is a reading event hosted by Fanda ClassicLit and the name pretty much describes it – read something by one of fiction's greatest Christmas authors.



A few years ago, I started a tradition of reading several short Christmas stories in December. In 2015, I read Dickens’ most famous Christmas short – A Christmas Carol. In 2016 I followed it up with The Cricket on the Hearth. This year, and for Dickens in December, I will read the third of his best known Christmas stories – The Chimes.

Feel free to join the event and pass the word along.

Have a very merry and blessed Christmas – God Bless us, Everyone!
(see what I did there?)

  1. Thank you for alerting us about this challenge. It is basically my tradition to read Dickens in December, so I plan on participating. I hope to get to Bleak House at the end of the year.

  2. I'm kinda tempted to join this, cuz I was thinking of reading "A Cricket on the Hearth" for the Literary Christmas challenge.
