I picked this up today in a secondhand bookshop in Gloucester, for £1. That's just one of your English-type pounds for Dickens and Rackham. Bargain! I read A Christmas Carol at school when I was about 9 or 10, but I've never owned it before. We also got a couple of old Target Doctor Who paperbacks for James, The Diary Of Anne Frank for Sophie, and Adrian Mole for Sarah/Sophie, £5 for the lot.
Reading update: I'm currently reading The Writer's Tale by Russell T. Davies & Benjamin Cook, Nova by Samuel R. Delaney, and today I've been dipping into GK Chesterton's The Glass Walking-Stick - sounds like a good name for a blog!
