Yesterday, I finished The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens.

I developed a dislike for Dickens after speed reading Great Expectations on high school. I tried to read A Tale of Two Cities years later, but could never get into, which I thought confirmed that I didn't like Dickens, but I did enjoy this book. The pathos at the end is very overdone, but otherwise it is enjoyable.

I also speed read Great Expectations for the same frickin' class (first period English 30). 2 nights. A nightmare. Years later I read David Copperfield -- WAY BETTER.
