Penguin Classics Hardcovers are breathtaking

Are these not the most gorgeous hardcover versions of classic novels you have ever seen?  What brilliant marketing by Penguin to have us all purchase anew some of our absolute favorites and then display them with pride, as they are too pretty to shove up on a high bookshelf.

Here are a few more to make your mouth water:

Oliver Twist (Penguin Classics)

Great Expectations (Penguin Classics)

A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings (Penguin Classics)

They are sold with a list price of $20.00, but has them listed for $13.60, so put them on your Christmas list and you may get a few of them in your stocking!  OK, I am going to have to show them all to you as I cannot decide which are the most beautiful.

Little Women (Penguin Classics)

  1. I absolutely love these covers. I'm slowly trying to collect them whenever I'm at chapters.
    I'm so happy that I found your blog!

  2. Hello to a fellow Canadian! I guess we'll both have some of these titles on our Christmas list. But which ones????? It's really hard to choose which ones to get first, as they are all so pretty...
