Josh Corman wrote a great post about starting a holiday tradition by staging a reading of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. We liked that sound of it so much that, after a bit of discussion on Twitter one night, a group of us decided to get together via a Google Hangout and give it a go. We at the Riot try to practice what we preach, after all.

We recorded the fun, and we thought we’d share it with you. So make yourself a cup of hot cocoa, settle in with your gift wrapping, and listen along as Josh, Rebecca, Jill, Preeti, and I read A Christmas Carol. 


We had so much fun that we’re thinking about doing this again. Maybe we’d even do it live.  What do you think? What book would you like us to read?
