The Christmas Treasure Chest books were some of my favorites as a child. It contained lots of great stories and delightful illustrations, all to promote the spirit of Christmas, especially for the very young! 🎄🎅🏻 A Christmas Carol, on the other hand, is a newer favorite of mine (though it’s been around for over a hundred years now). It’s a classic that is equal parts enduring and relevant. I do feel that it ought to be read by people of all ages. ❄️

In honour of Charles Dickens’ beloved novel A Christmas Carol, we have produced a specially decorated postbox featuring some of the story’s most well-known passages. The postbox, located on the corner of John Street and Northington Street (WC1N 2AT) in Holborn, London, has also been painted in the traditional Bronze Green used by Royal Mail until the 1870s. #christmas #charlesdickens #achristmascarol #novel #amazing #decoration #london #holborn
Happy Monday everyone! I'm having a much needed day off! 😊 So far I've been to the bookshop to buy presents and I've even done some blogging. Now I'm about to settle down with my book and a hot drink in my new Dresden Christmas market mug. I also bought a lovely little Christmas tree decoration at the market! #feelingfestive .

"Ebenezer Scrooge : I will honour Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, Present, and Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me! Tell me that I may sponge the writing from this stone!" *.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*. "A Christmas Carol" (1984) And so begins my own personal '12 Days of Christmas movie favorites. Among the dozen versions of the beloved Dickens classic, I absolutely adore this one with George C. Scott the most. Each performance, including the children's roles were done exceptionally well and since it was filmed on location in Shrewsbury, England, that contributed even more to its authenticity. The story of reclamation never gets old and I am delighted to begin my small series with this one. Happy Monday ( is that an oxymoron?) everyone! #achristmascarol #georgecscott #charlesdickens #christmasmovies #hoorayforhollywood

“People never explain to you exactly what they think and feel and how their thoughts and feelings work, do they? They don't have time. Or the right words. But that's what books do. It's as though your daily life is a film in the cinema. It can be fun, looking at those pictures. But if you want to know what lies behind the flat screen you have to read a book. That explains it all.” —Sebastian Faulks, A Week in December - I found the missing book to complete my set! It was A Week in December by Sebastion Faulks.

Finished this beauty and i feel all Chrismassy now! Its crazy to think this was released over 170 years ago and all the writing is just as applicable nowadays maybe even more so. They had far less than we have these days and yet they gave freely and forgave freely at this special time of year! . #bookstagram #bookish #allthebooks #chrismas #achristmascarol #charlesdickens #scrooge #clothbound #classics

"I wish to know you have been the last dream of my soul", "Tales of two cities" by Charles Dickens 🎄🌟. 🇮🇹: Come non citarvi Dickens per la tappa "God rest yet merry gentlemen: Christmas Classics" della #christmasbooksquad17?! 😘 E siccome non volevo nominarvi "Il Canto di Natale", per evitare di copiare le mie colleghe, ho scelto un altro libro decisamente meno natalizio ma con quello spirito di altruismo e redenzione tipico di Natale...😅 Per non parlare del fatto che chi ha amato come me TID non può di certo ignorare questa citazione letteraria! 😘 Avete letto qualcosa di Dickens?😊 🇬🇧: How can I not mention Dickens for today's step of the #christmasbooksquad17, that is about "Christmas Classics"?! I decided not to mention "The Christmas Carol", to try to stay original, also because I feel like this book is indeed full with the typical spirito of Christmas since it has both generosity but also the will to ask for forgiveness and try to be better! 😅 Also I am a TID fan, so...😅😓 Have your read something written by Dickens?! 😊 #bookchallenge #charlesdickens #talesoftwocities #raccontodiduecitta #christmasclassics #christmas #xmas #books #book #tid #cassandraclare #bookgeek #bookaholic #booknerd #reading #readingtime #bookstagrammer #bookstragram #bookblogger #bookblog #bibliophile #bibbliophile #11thdecember #december #fall #autumn #winter #2017
İki Şehrin Hikayesi - #kitapyorumu Güneş hüzünlü hüzünlü yükseldi; güneşin üzerine vurduğu hiçbir şey, sahip olduğu yetenekleri ve güzel duyguları kullanma becerisinden yoksun, kendi yararı ve mutluluğu için bir şeyler yapmayı beceremeyen, dahası bu feci halinin farkında olan ve bu feci halin onu tüketmesi pahasına kendinden vazgeçen bu adamdan daha hüzünlü değildi. ⭐5/5⭐ Merhabalar. Uzun zamandır okumak istediğim İki Şehrin Hikayesi'nin yorumuyla geldim. Kitabı o kadar sevdim ki ne yazsam, sevgimi nasıl anlatsam bilmiyorum. Başlarda kitap biraz karışık geldi. Karakterlerin bir adıyla bir soyadıyla yazılması kafamı karıştırsa da kısa sürede alıştım. Kitap, 18 yıl haksız yere hapis yatıp bir dostunun yardımıyla kurtulan doktor ve kızı Lucie'nin hikayesiyle başlıyor. Hayatlarına dahil olan Charles Darnay ve Sydney Carton'la olaylar gelişiyor. Sydney Carton kitabın başından beri açık ara en sevdiğim karakter oldu. Genel olarak Fransız Devrimi'nin öncesini ve sonrasını, asillerin halka uyguladığı zulmü ve halkın ayaklanmasını konu alan kitap muazzam güzeldi. Devamı yorumda. ⬇
“Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!” ~Charles Dickens~ • • • • #kansascity #kcmo #unionstation #igkansascity #igers #insta #instakc #capture_kc #believe #visitkc #trav3lr #kcdaily #missouri #missouri_photos #bestofkc #midwestisbest #trainstation #globeshotz #missouri_pic #kansascity_ig #christmastime #iphoneography #mykansascity #natgeo #holidays #seasonsgreetings #instafame #christmastree #charlesdickens #twinklelights

Last week i posted on my story that i had found a box full of books my Grandfather had left me after he died, including his gorgeous Charles Dickens 1984 Folio Society collection. A few people messaged saying they were lovely so i thought i'd share them again here. I always remember seeing these beautiful green spines lined up in his living room all through my childhood, so to now have them in my bookcase in my own home is really special for me 😌 • Does anyone else have any books that hold special meaning for them? 📖 #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #igbooks #instabooks #reading #reader #bookcollection #charlesdickens #classicbooks #foliosociety #handmedownbooks #memories #bibliophile #bookworm #booklover #literature #foreverreading #classicliterature
E di lui fu sempre detto che non c'era uomo al mondo che sapesse così bene festeggiare il Natale. Così lo stesso si dica di noi, di tutti noi e di ciascuno! E così, come Tiny Tim diceva: "Dio ci protegga tutti e ci benedica". #opresepe #AChristmasCarol #EbenezerScrooge #scrooge #piccoloTimmy #CantodiNatale #CharlesDickens #Dickens #castellodilimatola #limatola
#TheManWhoInventedChristmas is a fun and interesting look into the making of one of the biggest novels ever published. In this holiday biopic, Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) struggles to find inspiration while writing his classic novel, “A Christmas Carol”. An overall good film, intended for younger audiences in some part, but still works. A funny and charismatic performance from Christopher Plummer (“Beginners”) as the iconic Scrooge. A heart-warming film. Go see it or wait to see it at home. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ .
