A Tale of Two Cities
I'm reading this for the first time, because Norah's reading it for Challenge 2. Confession: If Norah weren't reading it, I probably would not. I am just not inclined to Dickens right now. But, I do feel a moral obligation not to put a weight on my daughter's back that I am not willing to bear on my own. (Thus, I also read Walden with her earlier this year.) So many words! We've already had one interesting conversation about the similarities and difference of the French and American Revolutions. So that's good. That's the point. I'm reading it, so I can talk to her about it.
