This week, my teaser is from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I've never read anything by Dickens before, so a couple weeks ago I checked out this book and Oliver Twist from the library. I don't really know how his individual books are regarded, therefore Great Expectations is mostly being read by chance; I'm hoping it will be interesting.
And here I may remark that when Mr. Wopsle referred to me, he considered it a necessary part of such reference to rumple my hair and poke it into my eyes. I cannot conceive why everybody of his standing who visited our house should always have put me through the same inflammatory process under similar circumstances.-p. 72
