Lost In A Good Book

  • Mood:

For cheap books...

for those of you who love the classics... Barnes and Noble has these neat editions of the classics that are nicely put together and very cheap. I just bought Robinson crusoe by Defoe, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair and Far from the maddening crowd by Hardy and for less than 20 dollars.

And they aren't those god awful tiny paperbacks that shed all their pages if you push the pages back too far.

I'm currently reading The Jungle, which is starting out to be very interesting. You know, all about the meat packing industry in turn of the century Chicago. It brought about a great deal of social change, this little book did. And yet, strangely enough, I can see that lot of immigrants that I know here in California live in some of the same conditions. (not quite so bad, but similar). How far have we come? Dunno, I haven't finished the book, so that will have to go in another post.
