          The Historian Read-Along: September 1-October 14, 2013


          1. It's been forever since I've visited, and am delighted to find these challenges. I just found a PDF download of Pictures from Italy by Dickens, so guess what I'll be reading in February?

          2. MMT, isn't it great that Dickens' book is now available for free?! I, too, downloaded it on my nook. It's a delightful little travel journal, quite unlike what I've read from him before. So glad you're joining in!

          3. You do love challenging yourself, don't you? I am feeling like a really lazy reader with just a couple of challenges to see me through the year. Just wanted to let you know I loved your January in Japan comments and reviews and we seem to share many literary tastes.
