A Christmas Carol: And Other Christmas Stories - Charles Dickens, Frederick Busch

Listing this as a "read" book feels a little like cheating, as of the four stories contained between its covers I only read the title one. I had read "A Good Humoured Christmas" as a chapter of The Pickwick Papers, though; as for the other two, they just didn't appeal to my mood at the moment.


As for "A Christmas Carol," I'm disappointed in myself for not having read it sooner. What a great story!
