The 50 in 52 Project Reading Challenge continues! (scroll down for more info)
A little info on Charles Dickens and his work:
Charles Dickens was born in 1812, During his earlier twenties, he began to publish short stories in various periodicals. Pickwick Papers (1837) made him famous. His early novels include Oliver Twist (1838) and A Christmas Carol (1843). In his thirties, the social commentary laced through his novels became darker, as exemplified in Hard Times (1854), A Tale of Two Cities (1859), and Great Expectations, which was serialized 1860-1861. His hectic schedule in his later days (publishing other writers, reading tours, theater, and writing endlessly) took a toll on his health, and he passed away in 1870.
The 50 in 52 Project is a fundraiser for RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network). I challenged myself to read 50 books in 1 year (6/1/18 to 6/1/19). I’m asking folks to sponsor me by pledging a $ amount per book I read. Sponsors don’t have to pay anything until after the Challenge finishes (6/1/19). To sponsor me, click HERE. For more info and a list of the 50 books, go to the posting pinned to the top of the official 50 in 52 Facebook page.
