Read any good books lately, bookbox? I'm reading lots of books for children, though more because I have to than because I want to.

Well, I've read The Old Curiosity Shop - so it can't be that unreadable!

I wouldn't if I were you Bookbox: I hear the Mandarin translation is crap!

If you want a bit of Dickens but don't fancy diving into a huge long novel, try a short story called "The Signalman". Itreally is a very creepy ghost story!

Yes, I'd second that. I think it was the first Dickens I ever really got to grips with (though I was quite a bit older than BookBox!).

New Moon eh?! I would consider that totally unreadable if its anything like Twilight, my daughter has read it and informs me its very good, but I think I will have to take her word for it as Twilight was the biggest load of rubbish I have ever had the misfortune to waste an afternoon on and don't wish to repeat it!

Thats strange I find New Moon Readable and I can only read about 50 pages of The Old Curiousity Shop Maybe it is because im 10 and I don't understand Dickens language because he was in the 19th century so I dont really understand Victorian English because of thou and stuff or was that the 16th century?.Oh well I am also not really a big fan of Dickens
I prefer Roald Dahl though.I had a piece of homework and my teacher shortened the length of time we had and I only did a paragraph,so that was annoying I was a bit shocked Shocked when she said that.
We read 2 pages of Bleak House by Charles Dickens that was taken out the book into a literacy text book
