Intro to The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandré Dumas

| Crafty Bits|

• Nada this week

| Book Talk - right away |

Paris Map & for the over-achievers: Château d'If map.


Dumas' family tree quote: "My father was a mulatto, my grandfather was a Negro, and my great-grandfather a monkey. You see, Sir, my family starts where yours ends." 

• And for those of you lucky enough to read French:“Mon père était un mulâtre, mon grand-père était un nègre et mon arrière grand-père un singe. Vous voyez, Monsieur: ma famille commence où la vôtre finit.”

David Clarke, our reader!

Buon Giorno Coffee

The tragic events of last Friday (all of them) put me in mind of a few things and I decided to make a little video for you. NO idea how long this will last what with me borrowing a film clip—for educational purposes—so watch it while you can!

Have friend you've been trying to explain CraftLit to? This may be a decent introduction to what we do every week. Feel free to share!

• The audiobook of Wolf Hall is second only to Bleak House (the Audible version read by a female/male duo), IMHO.


Austen's Henry VIII quote: *"The Crimes & Cruelties of [Henry VIII], were too numerous to be mentioned, (as this history I trust has fully shewn;) & nothing can be said in his vindication, but that his abolishing Religious Houses & leaving them to the ruinous depredations of time has been of infinite use to the landscape of England in general, which probably was a principal motive for his doing it, since otherwise why should a Man who was of no Religion himself be at so much trouble to abolish one which had for ages been established in the Kingdom."
Walden Witch House, (I remembered some of the story correctly.)

  • Michelle's "moon" section from Herland, chapter 4:

    We reconnoitered as widely as we could in the failing moonlight-- moons are of a painfully unreliable nature; but the growing dawn showed us the familiar shape, shrouded in some heavy cloth like canvas, and no slightest sign of any watchman near. We decided to make a quick dash as soon as the light was strong enough for accurate work.

A Christmas Carol -03- Charles Dickens - Audiobooks with Benefits

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens—Stave the Fourth, Stave the Fifth

Dickens of a Christmas

Music used in this Audiobook with Benefits compiled from

  • "Carol of the Bells" from Community Audio Internet Archive
  • Holiday Brass Ensemble, Nemesis, 12 Days of Christmas, and The First Noel all from the YouTube Music Library

Subscribe at iTunes--> New? Find out how to get all the audiobooks-with-benefits--> Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop (from 2010, but still excellent recipe links!)


 

From the text:

...and Bob served it out with beaming looks, while the chestnuts on the fire sputtered and crackled noisily. Then Bob proposed: "A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us!" Which all the family re-echoed.

"God bless us every one!" said Tiny Tim, the last of all.

In the 2010 holiday season a group of us hosted a Dickens of a Christmas blog hop:

There are recipes for the traditional foods Dickens wrote of in A Christmas Carol, or recipes that would have been found in Victorian England around the holidays. There were giveaways (sorry, finished), themed knitting patterns and quite possibly hats! There may have been smoking bishop and suet cooked in organs. And there was certainly much making of merry.

We hope you enjoy this as much as we know we did! And we hope that you have a DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS!

Thursday: "Handy"

More are coming but haven't been released as of the uploading of the podcast.
Please buy the album. The man is a flippin' musical genius because half of what makes his parodies work is that they sound SO MUCH like the original ("Grapefruit Diet" and "Yoda" being two that come to mind right away). Plus, I think any of you who have worked in a cubicle will get a kick out of his new song "Mission Statement".

BONUS--Tis the Season!

Dickens of a ChistmasI added some audio to the Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop a couple of years ago. Those general podcasts are linked to below via their shownotes.

There are video versions (where you can see the artwork from the original Dickens) and audio-only versions as well on those pages.

If you've never heard the original story it's not long and well worth a listen. Much of it is familiar from the movies and plays, but the bits that don't often get done are lovely, too.

Just more bookish than theatrical.

Enjoy--and have a Very Very Merry Christmas!
