One of my all-time favorite books it seems I actually read almost every year around Christmastime is Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens. The book is filled with such hardships and then the good people have a wonderfully happy ending. The words are poetic at times and the descriptions give my mind’s eye a scene so very easily.
For all of those who would like to read the book without paying for it – here is a link to the book at Gutenbern.org. Download it, save it, read it…enjoy.
