Welcome serial readers!
Here's the plan. We'll read Dickens's DOMBEY AND SON in the twenty part-issue numbers, as originally published from Oct 1, 1846 to April 1, 1848. The Oxford edition (edited by Alan Horsman) indicates each part issue number on the top right of each lefthand page of the novel. I propose we read two installments per week, one for posting on Mondays, the other for posting on Fridays. I'll make sure there's a space for posting on each number and then we can each feel free to comment as we please. Please use "comments" here to indicate if you can start with the first installment (first four chapters) for June 2.
It looks like Amazon has some used (and new) copies of this edition:
