The Penguin Classics

6.27.05

Alongside the complete collection of the Oxford English Dictionary and Encyclopedia Britanica, the complete Penguin Classics series is a must have for any serious intellectual. At a mere $7989.99 thanks to Amazon’s whopping 40% discount, this wonderful collection could be yours too. Needless to say shipping is free.

But what’s in this collection? The Penguin collection is a set of 1082 most admired novels in the world. If you were to lay each page side by side you would get 52 miles of writing. And if you rather stack all the books in a stack you would end up with a 828 feet stack which easily could be considered the 8th wonder (it would also be the lightest wonder at 700 pounds).

So, if anyone that I know ever gets rich or wins the lottery: I really wouldn’t mind this amazing collection.
