Well... my minds in the gutter.

Zen, before you traverse to a book store an buy all of these.... I'm pretty sure it's okay for you to read what you want first, throwing one of these in now and then. Just take your time and enjoy them. :]

Chris, I am very jealous. These books are beautiful. Alas, I cannot afford their richness. So, I console myself with Modern and Everyman’s Library editions. :(

Although I love a beautiful book, it is what is inside the book that is important. I would rather have 7 paperbacks than one hard cover most days, I get that much more out of my budget that way....
