A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – Public Domain Copy

Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas Bookshelf Battlers!  ‘Tis the season to be ready!  (You are not supposed to read the word “ready” as in “being prepared” but “reedy” as in, being a person who likes to read.  Nevermind).

It has been tough keeping up the old Bookshelf Battle blog (follow along on twitter @bookshelfbattle ) lately.  I’ve been writing up a storm on a book idea I have and unfortunately I have limited time, so the little time I do get I’d rather spending working on that than posting here, though I wish I could do both.

It’s been ages since I’ve done a book review.  That’s sad, since that’s what this blog is all about.  But one goal I have is to also promote the classics, especially those in the public domain that belong to the ages.

So without further ado, here is a link to Project Gutenberg’s version of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – the story of hard working Ebenezer Scrooge, an evil one-percenter who made his gold shillings off the backs of the poor, and was happy to do so until three liberal bleeding heart ghosts guilted him into spreading his loot around.

OK, so maybe the story doesn’t work well with modern terminology, but enjoy anyway!
