Excerpt from my current reading

[I could not stop laughing at this bit... I love Dickens for sentences like this one!]

"His surname was Cruncher, and on the youthful occasion of his renouncing by proxy the works of darkness, in the easterly parish church of Hounsditch, he had received the added appellation of Jerry."

--A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, first published 1859


  1. This is one of my most favorite books!

  2. Caroline, this is my first time reading through it but I am greatly enjoying it so far! :)
