Op here - I hate Dickens. I read most of it for my degree and therefore already have most of the books in question.
Did you point out to him that he was bragging about how for the next fifteen years he was going to give you books you hated, and already owned? 'Cause I'd like to know his reaction to having it spelled out for him. Also, buy a economy pack of socks. Give him one for each holiday from now on. No pairs, one sock per holiday.
I'm sorry to hear that. Normally I would say that a gift of literature is great because books are awesome. If you hate that author though... not so much. (I read some Dickens and did not care for him either...) I have two suggestions: Either accept the books and insist on reading them aloud together, or go back to the charity store and find some equally odd books to give to him. If you keep him, It can be a great gag gift tradition. In all seriousness... I wish you luck.
