Victorians!

Some of the best books in the world were written and published in Great Britain between 1837 and 1901. What's not to love?

Dickens, the Brontes, Collins, Gaskell, Eliot & Hardy to name but a few. If you fancy chatting about your faves or joining in the group reads please come and join in. This is a friendly group of seasoned classics-lovers right through to those thinking about dipping their toe in the water (and everyone inbetween). Everyone is welcome!
