18. Skimming over the ground without any defined purpose

Dickens' novel 'David Copperfield'.
As was fairly common at the time, the book initially had a much longer title: The Personal History, Adventures, Experience and Observation of David Copperfield the Younger of Blunderstone Rookery (which he never meant to be published on any account). Like most of Dickens's books, it first appeared in serial form, in this case in the period 1848–1850.
