Let’s start the week out right with five love quotes from literature.

As the gambler said of his dice, to love and win is the best thing, to love and lose is the next best. ~ The History of Pendennis by William Makepeace Thackeray

Our partner site, Charles Dickens Gad’s Hill Place, is moving!  It’s now located at http://www.charlesdickensinfo.com and has been renamed Charles Dickens Info.

This original site debuted in about 1998.  The website featured a photo of Gad’s Hill Place on the home page.  Visitors moved to different parts of the site by clicking on the door and windows of the image.  It was one of those things that seemed very, very cool at the time.

How things have changed!  The current site is done in WordPress and now features social sharing buttons and is mobile friendly.  Visit the new site today for quotes, games and little-known facts about Charles Dickens.
