They don't call it War and Peace for nothin'!

The Comic Reader N says:

Some questions-is there an introduction in each of the Dickens books?Also is the paper acid free

Dom Dee says:

Hey Lucy, can you tell me if this edition of War and Peace is in English and French? Or has the French been replaced? I'd really appreciate it; I'm bilingual and want to buy this edition but I can't find the info online!

Lottie Pea says:

Really helpful video – thank you so much. I have managed to track down a copy of South Riding by Winifred Holtby on your recommendation. Have subscribed, as I feel there is so much I can learn from your vlog.

Zonaida Rodriguez says:

David Copperfield is a great book !! 😄

Daniela H. says:

I LOVE those Dickens editions 😍

Ясечка Арт says:

You can also use Leo Tolstoy's books to step on to reach something from a tall book shelf. 😂 no, just kidding! I am Russian and I can read his books in original language and he is brilliant in terms of creating deep and gripping personalities in his stories.

Monai Wahedi says:

I read war and peace part one and it was masssiivve. Then again; I read it in swedish. Tip with war and peace: once you finished the book get the second part as soon as possible whilst the character interactions and relationships are fresh in your mind. Also; use a notepad if you want to markup the characters, their development and interactions with other characters etc. 🙂 Good luck!

Hugo Everard says:

David Copperfield is one of my favourite books ever. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!! Seriously, give it a go. The ending is just a blast of excitement and joy.

Max Weber: Last Great Polyhistor says:

Cute and bookish : the type of girl I like.

Hard time is really awesome to read I really inspired

Shabnaj Sharif says:

Hi! Greetings to you. Your channel is simply inspiring and love that you are so true to yourself.
This year from March 2020 I started reading classics and one i currently enjoyed reading a new classic book "Les Miserables by Victor Hugo". Simply spellbinding and in my opinion it's based on realistic factors and incidents which brought tears into my eyes. Currently into "A Christmas Carol".

v Bathory says:

Just wondering, have you read the Tolstoy books yet? I’ve also got war and peace staring at me from the bookshelf but damn it’s intimidating 😅

Asma E Safa says:

Hi there can you tell whether the Charles Dickens vintage is abridged or unabridged editions?

Meester_James says:

Eyes Were Watching God. WONDERFUL Addition! It's soo good!

holistic79 says:

Book buying ban doesn't exist in my life.

Barry Cunningham says:

I also finished Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God a couple of months ago. Really enjoyed it. But I liked even more the nonfiction book of hers that brought me to it, Barracoon. Highly recommend it.

Barry Cunningham says:

I have read several Dickens novels over the years. Great Expectations was my first, when I was in junior high school, just because we had it lying about the house when I was a kid. I was very impressed with how it tied up all the loose threads at the end. It was a lot more thoughtfully architected than what I had been reading earlier. We had to read it in school a year or two later, so I reread it then. Also read A Christmas Carol at an early age after having had it read to me and my cousins at Christmas by my uncle (though I probably dozed off then in a post-prandial slump after Christmas dinner). In high school we also had to read A Tale of Two Cities, which I enjoyed, but was not wildly effusive about. I read Bleak House sometime when I was in graduate school in the early 1970s and loved his droll wit in it. So far it is probably my favorite Dickens. Read Little Dorrit in about 30 years ago and quite enjoyed it. Also saw a two part movie adaptation of it which perfectly illustrated the fact that massive complex novels do not translate well to film.
Read Anna K. about 5 years ago. I had remembered the title from a thin little tome that had been sitting around my house as a kid. Must have been the Readers Digest version. I read it as an eBook as was surprised that it just kept going on and on. Almost put it down in a couple of places when Anna jumped to new levels of stupidity. Finally finished it though. Saw the movie on a flight back from Europe in 2014. It was beautiful, but it left off massive bits of the plot and glossed over much of the rest. More of a visual homage to the book than a retelling.

Graeme Bell says:

Wuthering Heights is a WONDERFUL Bronte novel. Remember that.

Graeme Bell says:

The GOT book you refer to is the fifth one. (1,120 pages)

Xiomara Silva says:

Bram Stalker DRACULA one of my best

Misty Sharpe says:
