To celebrate Dickens’ 201st Anniversary, Fanda from Klasik Fanda hosted a wonderful event, with lots of memes and giveaways along this month. One of them is to post something about me and Dickens =)
To tell you the truth, I’m not a Dickensian. I haven’t even known his works for a long time. But I determine to read more of him. Here’s my confession as a not-yet-Dickensian. Enjoy! Oh, and happy birthday, Sir, thanks for a bunch of amazing books!
My Confession as a (Not Yet) Dickensian
I have to make a terrible confession
I haven’t read many books of Dickens
And I don’t own his great works’ collection
Even though I’ve watched Great Expectations
It’s mainly because I wanted to see the handsome Ethan!
Okay, okay I know I’m a bad bookworm
I’ll pretend that I didn’t see you squirm
But fortunately now I am able to confirm
That last year finally I encountered one of his gems!
Now please give me some time to replay
To one year ago when we celebrated his birthday
Baca Klasik, a cool community that is so gay
Challenged us to read Dickens’ books all the way
I was beyond excited, I was ecstatic!
I couldn’t wait to dig deep into his classics
I chose to read ”The Old Curiosity Shop”
And once I opened the book, I just couldn’t stop!
So that was the beginning of my encounter
With Charles Dickens, the classics master
And maybe I am not a Dickensian yet
But I will be one, I’ll try my best!
I can’t wait to meet with David Copperfield
Or let the Mystery of Edwin Drood revealed
How about peeking inside the Pickwick Papers?
And also following Oliver’s famous adventures!
People said it’s never too late
To enjoy books that are oh so great
So let me cheer and congratulate
Give my respect in a silver plate
Happy birthday to you, Sir, and I just can’t wait
Til we meet again in our next date!
