But why limit yourself to "A Christmas Carol"? Dickens wrote 5 "Christmas Books":

A Christmas Carol (1843)
The Chimes (1844)
The Cricket on the Hearth (1845)
The Battle of Life (1846)
The Haunted Man (1848)

And they're available at MR in Mobi and ePub format in one handy omnibus edition.

It may surprise some people to learn that the popularity of "A Christmas Carol" is a fairly recent phenomenon. Until the early 20th century, "The Cricket on the Hearth" was probably better known and more popular.
