David Copperfield--1850 edition--

I wanted a print copy to read lying down, but there are so many abridged (read mutilated) editions where reviews read

"Kindle edition is a mess"

"Don't buy this one star edition.  I wanted a classic.  If I wanted a book written for an 8 year old, I would have bought it."

So guess I will have to read this sitting up at my laptop.

Too bad.

I do think I have a paper copy, only I don't know where it is--maybe packed in a box.
