First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday

Hello! Apologises for 1. not been around lately 2. If you can't see everything on my blog, I'm having technical issues at the moment!

This week's 'First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday' (hosted by 'Bibliophile by The Sea') is from a book I want to read, 'Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens. I have read this, but many years ago and I'm also in the mood to read some Dickens:

'Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one anciently common to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born: on a day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, in this stage of the business at all events: the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter.'

'Oliver Twist'- Charles Dickens
