This was my first time participating in the Bout of Books Read-A-Thon. I planned to complete three books: A Tale of Two Cities, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and The War of the Worlds. However, I only managed to finish the first two. I read a lot during this past week, but I sorely underestimated the length and density of Dickens’ work. This was my second reading of A Tale of Two Cities. The first time was in eighth grade (I was that kid), but I missed so much the first time I read it. A review is forthcoming, but I will say here that I really enjoyed the book. I would like to thank Laura @Reading in Bed for hosting the read-a-long of A Tale of Two Cities and Amanda @ On a Book Bender for hosting Bout of Books 10.
