Hey everyone, I'm the other new maintainer. My story isn't as interesting as asgt's, alas. I just started reading Dickens during kind of a rough time in my life and totally got lost in the books. I feel like I kind of owe Mr. Dickens something for helping me through those angsty teenage years (I'm now 21). That sounds sort of melodramatic or something, but it's true. My favorite of his books, and my favorite book ever, is A Tale of Two Cities. I've only read about half of his books and a handful of stories though. I really need to work on that.

Anyway, I have something to share. There's this really cute children's book I found at the library called Charles Dickens: The Man Who Had Great Expectations. It's a story of his life, with great illustrations. I scanned it a few years ago:

*snerk* So they do...

Dickens has moved that desk through about five rooms by that time. And it always has to be JUST SO.

Poor guys.
