It's that simple.

This week I'm reading...

From 56% on my Kindle...

"Welcome to the resting place of my ancestors," said Simon. "My grandfather, the founder of Dickens Junction, was a lifelong devotee of Dickens's works, and celebrated them in more ways than I can count. Although The Mystery of Edwin Drood was not among his favorite Dickens novels, he never failed to laugh at Mayor Sapsea, whose bombastic and self-congratulatory eulogy for his wife our own Mayor Dick quoted earlier. My grandfather, however, did believe in allowing Dickens and Victoriana to inspire every aspect of his life - and his afterlife as well."
