Book of the Week: A Christmas Carol
As one of the most famous Christmas stories of all time, just about everyone knows the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation from curmudgeonly miser to generous benefactor. A Christmas Carol is one of Charles Dickens' finest and most memorable stories, which is why it's our book of the week this week. We love this festive new edition from Vintage Publishing, with a snowy cover featuring Scrooge himself and the three Christmas spirits that visit him.
"Every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart."
'Scrooge' has become a synonym for anyone who disdains the festive season, and the quotation above perfectly illustrates why. This story is an essential read for Christmas-time, a classic that you can't help but revisit over and over again.
