To Be Read at Dusk (UK)
To Be Read at Dusk (UK) | Charles Dickens
12 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
'The monstrous thought came into my mind as I perused the fixed eyes and the saturnine face, that this was a spirit, not a man.' Three ghostly tales from a master of the form, 'The Signalman', 'The Trial for Murder' and the title story, 'To Be Read at Dusk'. One of 46 new books in the bestselling Little Black Classics series, to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946. Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics' huge range and diversity, with works from around the world and across the centuries - including fables, decadence, heartbreak, tall tales, satire, ghosts, battles and elephants.

Thank you so much, @veritysalter for this lovely surprise Jólabókaflód gift! You can‘t beat a Victorian ghost story for Christmas Eve and I can‘t wait to try this hot chocolate.

Happy Holidays to you, my friend! ??

veritysalter Happy holidays - The Signal Man is one of my favourites. Happy reading 1mo
LeahBergen @veritysalter I can‘t wait! I hosted the family here at our house last night so tonight will be all about curling up with these ghost stories. 1mo

My October TBR- at least what I have from the library right now. There are some spooky books, a handful of mysteries, some thrillers, one about baseball (Go Nats!), some recommendations from my reading buddy at work, and The Hunt For Red October because it seemed wrong to read that in September. I know I overdid it this month!

These are the ones I (think) I want to read in February. Already thinking maybe I should read something other than Ink and Bone. Decisions, decisions, decisions!😋❤📚

#AwesomeAutumnBooks #TBR @Jess7
Sorry to be late but I've had a very busy start to the month with family get togethers this weekend. Here is of one my tbr piles. I won Butterfly on the Storm when I started using Twitter earlier in the year. I bought He Said/She Said and The Scandal is from the library. I claimed The Captain's Girl on Readers First and The Fourteenth Letter was courtesy of the publisher via Twitter.

My #TBRTuesday from last Week! 5 checked off, 4 in progress, and with The Two Towers started for #LOTRChapterADay, I've started my first on my #TBRBingo Card too. Good thing I'm planning to read a lot this weekend and hopefully finish up some of these lingering stragglers.

Laura317 You're gettin' after it!! Great job. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 2y
mhillis Wow! 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @mhillis @Laura317 it looks way more impressive than it is 2 comics and 2 short stories, and the Fellowship I've been reading a chapter a day with a group on here for awhile now, the last chapter just fell in this week! 😉. 2y

Pickpick

Just read this Little Black Classic 📖 (and I read it at dusk)
🌙
• To Be Read at Dusk is a collection of 3 short ghost stories by Charles Dickens
👻
• The second one was very spooky and really creeped my out! The other two are also worth reading
😱
• I can recommend this for midnight reading, read it only with candlelight to make it even more spookier! 🕯
• Are there any Dickens lovers out there?
