So I pretty much totally suck. I was meant to post this on Thursday but then I went away for the weekend without realising I hadn't even written it and now I'm kind of hurriedly scrabbling something together so I can get it kicked off and get reading!
In case anybody doesn't know, The Pickwick Papers was Dickens' first novel published when he was just 24, which pretty much confirms my status as an underachiever (I've always suspected it since Keira Knightley was only the year above me at my primary school and look what's she's achieved...), it has been made into two silent films, a radio play, a 'proper' film (one with sound), and an opera which is pretty impressive for a novel which, according to Wikipedia, basically has no actual plotline. We shall see.
Because I'm rubbish and rushed for time and need to get on with reading I'm going to link you to Ellie's fantastic intro post - thanks Ellie! And stick a linky here so you can link up your intro posts if you've written one! See you back here on Thursday when I will have actually written a post about the first few chapters, I promise!
