It's an exciting episode today - one of our readers, Carol, joins me at the microphone to talk about this week's reading of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, chapters 23-26.
In these chapters Pip goes to three different homes and experiences three very different groups of people. Carol and I have a great time chatting about Pip and our hopes for him in the novel. Read along with us, and watch the video to see which characters we liked, which ones we adored, and who we find to be awful. So grab you cup of tea, settle in your favorite chair - and enjoy our discussion!
READERS: We would love for you to join us on the next video, or a future one. Let me know if you are interested, and we'll make a plan to have you on.
