I read about this in Newsweek a while back. It's actually kind of tempting, isn't it?
I know I will never, ever have this, but I've always, in the back of my mind, really, really wanted one of those big walls of books with leather bindings and gold lettering on the spine. I wonder how much this set would cost done up like that (don't answer -- I don't really want to know )
700 lbs of books. Read one a week and it comes out to 20 years worth of reading. But the price seems a little high. My local bookstore sells many of these classics (out of copyright) for less than $5. This price averages about $7.50 a book.
