Something New(ish). Something Old

I love this book. I found it in a used book store about five years ago and it's just so cool. The inside page has a real cool old picture of what Anne Shirley is supposed to look like.


I saw this and gasped, I had to have it. Isn't it the most gorgeous boxset?

For those that can't see, the titles are: The Secret Garden, Little Woman and A Little Princess. I love what Penguin Classics are doing with these iconic novels, the Anne of Green Gables one is delish also.

I know, I seriously couldn't resist when I saw it in the store. It was pretty reasonably priced too.

You should see the embossed version of Pride and Prejudice they've done too - I would have taken a photo in the store but I was worried about security.

I want to see what Anne Shirley was supposed to look like.
