Recommended Posts

Some of the reviews are particularly funny. Some of those Penguin editions are quite well done, for what it's worth — I'm particularly fond of Robin Buss's translation of The Count of Monte Cristo.

Ali and I separately acquired 20-30 Penguin classics during our undergrad years, and I can distinctly remember being geeked out, as we neared our wedding date, at the thought of one-fleshing...

(wait for it)

...our library! All those black-spined paperbacks, arranged according to their two different sizes and their red, orange, yellow, green and purple top-stripes, all mixed together on our now-joint bookshelves.

Just got about 35% of that on my Kindle for free.

That would be excellent. As an English scholar, I too have a good number of Penguin Classics kicking around.

I remember a few years ago though, I always wanted this.
