Since my last What Are You Reading post I've read two books: The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (reviewed here) and Dewey: The Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, by Vicki Myron (soon to be reviewed).
The other day I went to Borders because I had some birthday money burning a hole in my pocket. Therefore, I decided to see what all the fuss was about, so I bought The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. I'm about a hundred or so pages in and loving it. I can tell I'm going to need to read the rest of the series.
I also had a very hard time not buying books I already own. Why? Because the new cover art is AMAZING. I specifically had a hard time saying no to the Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of Wuthering Heights. Heathcliff is apparently tuning into his inner Edward Cullen. *love*
Second, though, was Pride and Prejudice.
And even though I absolutely hated reading The Scarlet Letter, I almost bought it anyway. (I couldn't find a good photo of the back cover, but it's essentially 3 or 4 women gossiping over a fence.)
However, since I did so well avoiding these three unnecessary additions (although I really might go back and buy Wuthering Heights), I felt I deserved something for my troubles.
I've always wanted to read The Three Musketeers. Maybe the comic book cover will entice me now.
So that's it. What are you reading? And have you seen any other new covers for classic books that I must get my hands on?
