Charles Dickens

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. . . The man who never reads lives only one.”

– George R R Martin

There’s just something unique and mesmerising about opening a book, riffling the pages and getting lost in a world beyond our own. Whether you’re walking down the murky and dark lanes of a crime thriller or taking a far away journey to the land of fantasy and science-fiction, books have the capability to transport, please and relieve. 

So, on Charles Dickens Day, we thought of rekindling the love for reading and asking BYJUites to share a glimpse of their favourite books. The celebrated English author has woven some memorable classics and inspired a generation to read. As part of the reading challenge, we asked BYJUites to pick a book, read it and write what they thought about it. They also had to send a photo of them reading their chosen book. The response was overwhelming!
