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.

OH MY GOD. That is the most gorgeous box set! The illustrations, the colors, it's hot!

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.
