I thought it would be good to have a place to share web sites, events etc on various aspects of literature prompted by something I came across today.

Do share snippets or longer pieces you come across that relate to the Guardian list, and that you believe the group will find interesting. If something would be better under a new topic thread do set one up, or contact me for how to do this.

I hope members enjoy sharing and reading topics from this new folder.

This month we are reading 'Bleak House' by Charles Dickens, which is timely as it happens to be his birthday today! To mark the day, you might be interested in reading this article, which includes one of his private letters and a photograph of him with his family.

The author, Maria Popova, mentions 'The Letters of Charles Dickens' saying "The Letters of Charles Dickens is an enormously absorbing read in its entirety, full of the beloved writer’s meditations on life, literature, love, and loss". It is possible to download this for free from the Gutenberg project.
