A New Tradition

I have a cousin who reads through Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol around this time every year. The part I love is that the copy that she reads once belonged to her dad, my uncle, who passed away in 2006. She writes down the date she finishes each time.

I just might start doing that for myself.

I found a first edition facsimile that gave me all the feels. Plus, it was only $12.99 (which if you haven’t been following the price of books lately is pretty dang cheap).

I’ve read through A Christmas Carol before, but hopefully I can be more consistent from here on out. So in honor of my cousin and in memory of my uncle, I pledge to read through this book once a year until I croak or until Jesus comes back.

And you can hold me to it.
