Happy 200th Birthday, Charles Dickens!

By now, I'm sure that if you've been on Google (and seen the latest Google Doodle) that you know that today is Charles Dicken's birthday. Here then, are ten facts about Dickens (my apologies for the Abe books banner across the bottom. Obviously, they made the video, so they get to advertise, but I found it a bit distracting).

I love all the BBC productions of Dickens works. They bring it to life.

I do, too. When they did Bleak House, I wasn't sure I'd like it (it's one of the ones I haven't read, and it sounded so...well, bleak). But we loved every minute of it. The BBC really does a great job.
