They say you should never judge a book by it’s cover, but I’m sorry, I can’t help but judge.  I want these remastered Penguin Classics just because they’re pretty.

Okay I lied.  They’re more than just good looks.  I’m a huge literature buff and love the idea of displaying some of my favorite works.  The fact that they’re super eclectic and colorful is just an added bonus.  Wouldn’t they look absolutely perfect lined up on a bookshelf?  Stacked on a fireplace, perhaps?  Next to a ceramic vase?  In between two antique bookends?

I need them asap.  I think this Jane Austen Sense and Sensibility will be the first addition to my collection:
