Review Pickwick Papers Vol. 1 Chapters 32 and 33
The chapter where Mr. Pickwick goes to visit the medical students to take some punch and hear some tales. Followed by the chapter where Sam Weller sends a valentine, visits his father and goes to a temperance meeting. And helps his father exact vengeance on Rev. Stiggins, who is not very sober. This mostly just a prelude to the trial that's coming up hopefully next installment.
I do think this is the way to read at least The Pickwick Papers, if not all of Dickens. It gives me time in between to read other things, knit a sweater and go on vacation. I think I'd begin to view the book as tedious if I were reading straight through.
