Or, if you don’t have cholera, how about “Love in the time of Penguin Classics”? I mean, that’s practically the same thing, right?
So I’ll give you one guess – what do you think I got for Valentine’s Day?
They look so lovely together, don’t you think?
I absolutely LOVE these gorgeous editions – each one has a clothbound cover design that relates to the book in some pivotal way.
Others on my personal wishlist:
Many, many more are available too. Wouldn’t a whole shelf of these be gorgeous? I really hope Penguin doesn’t discontinue these anytime soon…
PS>I’ll save my “ugh why do people buy books just for looks/pretentiousness?!” for another day, but I assure you that as soon as I finish Sense and Sensibility (wrinkled old paperback, much loved) then I’ll be revisiting Wuthering Heights. Last time I read it was in college, and then it was with the “frantic 100 pages a night for this class plus i have four other classes too you know” pace. I can’t wait to revisit it and reread at a more human pace 😀
PPS>I have the greatest husband in the entire world. EVER. E-V-E-R.
