Bah Humbug!

I have just bought A Christmas Carol by Dickens. (which also includes The Chimes & The Cricket on the Hearth - $6 - Gotta love B&N classic books!).  I have set aside BloodFever which I am almost done with, in order to read Dickens's timeless classic.  Now I must admit, ashamedly so, that I have never read this book. I know, I know, but I just never got around to it.  But that changes this year!  I will make it a tradition to read it every year, as I read The Raven by Poe every Halloween.  If you've read A Christmas Carol, please share your thoughts on it, if you haven't I'll be telling you about it soon enough. :)
