A Great Book Purchase

I needed a little literary comfort food, and Heather suggested re-reading Great Expectations! What a novel idea! I stopped on my way home from work that very day and picked up the COOLEST COPY OF GE I'VE EVER SEEN!!! It's worth all those caps...

From Penguin:

Front Cover

The EVEN COOLER back cover. I *heart* Havisham and Estella!

  1. What a great edition! I have a cartoony Ethan Frome by Penguin that I picked up a few weeks ago! I love all the new editions coming out.

  3. I'm currently reading Great Expectations for the first time now and am really enjoying myself. My only gripe is Pip's name. I have a hard time taking Pip seriously, ya know?

    Christina, I hope you love it as much as I do. Obviously, Estella was a bit inspiring to me. lol
