The Penguin Modern Classics series is 50 years old this year (Penguin paperbacks have been in print for more than 76 years). To celebrate this achievement, they’re releasing a “Mini Modern Classics Box Set.” “Each little book is a quick literary hit, a satisfying shot of storytelling. And though they don’t take long to read, they’ll stay with you long after you turn the final page.” A strong collection and great gift for anyone. Looks to be available in the U.K. only at the moment. (notcot)
