I Heart Penguin Classics

I blogged about the new Penguin Classics for Children here and I can tell you they are even prettier in person.  Check them out on my console table:

There is something to be said for a beautiful book.   I love to read and somehow reading from something this pretty makes it that much more enjoyable.

But as much as I love these, I have to tell you,  I am reaaally loving my new kindle!
