    Oh my…a previous commenter lamented her lack of a teleporter, and I am also feeling the want of such a device! That pesky Atlantic Ocean is in the way or I’d be there in a heartbeat for the 28th.

    I have not commented previously, but want to say how incredibly much I am loving this project! I am a lifelong Dickens fan(atic), have read OMF before of course, but not like this.

    I played catch-up for the first few installments after I stumbled upon the Reading Project blog, and am now reading along with everyone using the digitalized original numbers—studying the wonderful advertisements, laughing over the creative storyline Tweets, and amazed to be tagging along on such an adventure as this.

    I have eagerly read and very much enjoyed every guest post, each illuminating an aspect of OMF that I would never have thought of on my own.

    This is such a wonderful undertaking….just want to let you know I’m out here appreciating all of it!
