Con todo el dolor de mi corazón y para alegría de algunos rezagados, lamento comunicaros que, en una maniobra un tanto descuidada por mi parte he eliminado de nuestro blog la entrada de los ejercicios sobre Charles Dickens .No los busquéis desesperadamente porque, de acuerdo a voces expertas, que no es la mía, tan valioso artículo es irrecuperable.
