Hard Times by Charles Dickens
Available in ebook on iTunes.
“Charles Dickens’ s shortest novel, Hard Times presents a harsh appraisal of English society during the Industrial Revolution. Set in fictitious Coketown, Hard Times tells the story of Thomas Gradgrind and his children, Louisa and Tom, as they struggle to make their way in a changing England.”

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Available in ebook on iTunes or Kobo.
“Charles Dickens’ s second novel, Oliver Twist is one of the author’ s best known and loved works. With colourful and memorable characters like Fagin, the Artful Dodger, and Oliver himself, Oliver Twist transports the reader to the gritty, dangerous streets of Victorian London, where Oliver falls prey to pickpockets and evildoers, yet manages to keep his goodness and ultimately find his salvation. With Oliver Twist, Dickens called attention to the plight of children on the streets of London and drew on his own experience as a child labourer.

Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Available in ebook on iTunes or Kobo.
“Bleak House is the haunting story of Esther Summerson, John Jarndyce, and the lawyer Tulkinghorn, drawn together by one of England’ s longest running litigations. Part murder mystery, part courtroom drama, and part romance, Bleak House is widely considered to be one of Dickens’ s finest literary works.”

David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Available in ebook on iTunes or Kobo.
“David Copperfield is the unforgettable story of David’ s pursuit of his dream of being a successful writer. Following David from his impoverished childhood to his meetings with the memorable Uriah Heep, the beautiful Dora, and the comic Micawber, David Copperfield is believed to be the most autobiographical of Charles Dickens’ s works.”

A very Happy Birthday to Charles Dickens!
