Hardcover

One of my favorite
things to do
on a day off
(or any day really)
is to read.

I am one
who will read
pretty much
anything.

These hardcover classics
are absolutely beautiful.


I only wish
they were sold
in the US.

I have heard
through blogs
that they can
only be found
in Europe.



So sad.
But I can dream
of them placed
in my bookshelf.


So tell me....

What good books have you read lately?

Well..if oyu are serious about getting these books you can actually order them from a Canada website called indigo books. They do sell the series. The olny thing is that they do not have pictures. The link below if for the madame butterfly. they sell for about $140 for the whole set and $14 for a book. They are amazing,I would like to get them myself. IF you want the ISBNS for all, I have a list!

HI......ok below is the list of the isbns for the series. I dont believe you can just buy as a set, you have to buy them all individually by typing in each ISBN in the search bar. There is no picture of the actual book but I went to a website that gave this list of ISBNS and several people have purchased them off this Canadian booksite and verify they are the actual book. Here is the site: www.chapters.indigo.ca
