Shae (ShaeLouiseReads) | 1 comments What a great idea! I have had these sitting on my shelf for a while now so this is the perfect excuse for me to pick them up. I have never read anything by Charles Dickens so I hope this will be a good place to start.

Luisina (luisina08) Hi! I'm Luisina. I'm so glad you decided to create this readalong Sam, I was planning on reading A Christmas Carol this year so this works perfectly. I'm excited to participate!


Kailey (Luminous Libro) (luminouslibro) Hi, I'm Kailey. My book tube channel is booksformks! http://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8zVhBD...

I'm a huge Dickens fan, but I haven't read most of these Christmas stories yet, and the others are definitely due for a reread.

I'm so pleased to be a part of this group! Happy reading everyone!

Thanks for creating this read-along Sam, it looks like a ton of fun and a great way to get in the holiday spirit!

I have only read A Christmas Carol (a long time ago) and Hard Times by Dickens, so I am looking forward to exploring all of these short stories!


message 5: by Mpauli (new)

Mpauli Hi, my name is Michael. Except from The Christmas Carol I haven't read any Dickens yet, but this idea sounded like a great opportunity to have a first look at his writing.
And Sam is radiating the Dickensian Christmas spirit, so I could hardly resist.^^

I'm also on booktube and my channel is Bitten by a radioactive book: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaqr...


message 6: by Terri (new)

Terri (terrib) I'm Terri and I love reading Dickens in December! Dickens has always felt like a winter season author to me. My first experience with Dickens was reading David Copperfield when I was 8. The librarian made the mistake of suggesting that I read something more age appropriate. Yep, I was a stubborn little thing.

Looking forward to reading with you all!

Rosa Barretta | 2 comments Hey! I'm Rosa. I've never read anything by Charles Dickens before and I had these stories sitting on my shelf for a while now. I'm glad you started this read-along, Sam! I'm excited to finally read these stories and start the holiday season with this read-along.

Katarina | 1 comments This is such a great idea! I don't think I've ever read any Christmas story by Dickens. Or I have, but I was to little to remember it now :D
I will definitely be joining you!

And, I've almost forgotten, haha- Hello everyone! My name is Katherine, and I do have a booktube channel. You can find it here:

I'm really looking forward to this read-along! :D :D


Tanya (aka ListObsessedReader) (listobsessed) | 5 comments Hi everyone! I'm Tanya, or ListObsessedReader on booktube https://www.youtube.com/user/listobse...

A Christmas Carol will be a reread for me, but I have never read any of Dickens' other Christmas stories, so I am looking forward to finally getting forward to these! I have been meaning to start a tradition to read A Christmas Carol every Christmas for years and it just hasn't happened, so really glad for the push! I'm actually planning to listen to the audiobook of this one. The version I have is narrated by Tim Curry who I think sounds PERFECT for this story.

Maddie (themaddiehatter) Hello everyone! My name is Maddie. I am super excited for this because I LOVE Christmas and the Holiday Season!

I don't actually think I've read anything by Dickens before...but I've watched movie adaptations of his books and liked the stories. Except for A Christmas Carol, I haven't heard of any of the other stories, so I'm really excited for them!

Oh yeah, and here's my Youtube Link:) :

Kate (thatkateperson) Hello, my name is Kate. I haven't read any Dickens before, but he's one of those authors that I've always meant to get around to. I might not be able to read every book on the list due to time constraints, but I'll give it my best shot! Christmas is my favourite time of year, so I'm definitely excited to get into the spirit with a bit of themed reading!
