  1. If you feel like kicking back with a literary classic, and a wide selection to choose from then pick this up pronto. If you chose to buy all these books separately, it would cost much more than the bargain price this game is going for in comparison.

    You’ll get a fantastic selection of Shakespeare’s plays, the complete works of Jane Austin, adventure stories like Treasure Island and The Last of the Mohicans. Dickens is in there, two of the Brontes, Eliot, Twain, Henry James… you won’t get bored quickly, because there’s a book for every taste and mood. That is, unless you shun the classics.

Unlike what is erroneously claimed by many sources, the booksNice collection, which includes many important classics of English literature. Unlike what is erroneously claimed by many sources, the books are not pulled from public domain, but from HarperCollins' budget range of "affordable classics" called Collins Classics. Not the best editions available, not nearly as good as Oxford World's Classics for instance, but not royalty-free either, and perfectly fine for the price. Full Review »
