    I Also Recommend:

    This is the most amazing set to come out of any book publisher in ages!

    This set is just amazing, looking up and down the list they have really compiled the best, for example, Main Street and Far from the Madding Crowd. This would be an asset to any collector. All these books are wonderful quality and would hold together for many years.<BR/><BR/>Last but not least I would like to write a note to those who keep asking for the hardcovers. Barnes and Noble created this set for everybody, not just those who can afford thousands or maybe even tens of thousands of dollars, which would have been the price had they decided to print this in hardcover. At first when Barnes and Noble started to change its classics from hardcover to softcover I was very disapointed, as I was just approaching the age where I would actually understand and read a classic. But then I decided to pick up a paperback copy of Far from the Madding Crowd from my local Barnes and Noble, I read it through, TWICE, and it is still in wonderful condition. I don't understand you snotty people who think that paperback will just rip the first time you read it, what are you doing to those books? Barns and Noble paperback classics will remain in a fine condition, for atleast two generations, because they harden the paper at the cover and make it more durable, these are not regular paperback books. Just a little hint because you look like you need it, treat the books well, they will last longer. <BR/><BR/>Please Barnes and noble continue this offer for the next few years and then I can afford it and buy it.

    If I were going to spend the money to stock 200 of the great works I would want them in nice hard bound copies. Its a shame really

    Who cares if its paperback?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but, I always thought that books were for reading, not looking good on a shelf. I'm in the army and I'm deployed alot so I can usually throw a paperback in my pocket to read when we have to stop and wait on something.

    Of course everyone loves hardbacks..

    I really cherish great quality hard cover books. That's why I have gotten so many of BN's bargain leather bounds. But this collection is still amazing. Yes it is paperback, so you will have to be more careful with it, but I actually feel like paperbacks are more enjoyable sometimes. You can take them with you, re-read them without worrying about tarnishing an expensive volume, and let your kids read them without totally freaking out.<BR/><BR/>And to everyone who said they would immediately buy this collection if it was in hardback... who wouldn't???? 200 classics in hardcover for less than 900 dollars?? Well that would never happen. You can get some of these paperback books for 5.95 and that's part of the reason why this collection is so affordable.<BR/><BR/>For the content and the price.. I can't believe there are so many complaints.

    Classics are missing

    Seems like other loved classics are missing from this collection like Robin Hood, King Arthur, Swiss Family Robinson, H.M.S. Bounty, and others. For such an investment, hardcover would be great but also a few other titles should be a part of this collection....

    Great Books, but like Others, Want Hardcovers!

    I can't say that I have read even half of all these books, but the ones I have are great. But, like others, I wish that B&N would consider releasing this set in hardcover. <BR/><BR/>And also, to the person below me, I deffinitely agree with your opinion about Dante's books. Why not have three of literature's greatest poems published in hardcover?

    Great concept; poor execution

    As other reviewers have stated, the lack of hardbacks is an issue. I fail to understand any decision-making scenario that ends in agreeing to publish/print Dante's 'Inferno' and 'Purgatorio' in hardback/paperback, but 'Paradiso' in paperback only. It's a bit bewildering. <BR/><BR/>I would buy more of these, but not in paperback for some of the same reasons mentioned by others. Come on B&N....get it together!!

    Paperbacks are good too.

    I'm sick of people saying they need hardbacks. Paperbacks are more portable and can also look just as good on a shelf as hardcovers can. And i agree with TravisH27, because what if you can't lug around a heavy hard-cover?

    Magical

    I received this Classics Library as a gift from my parents, and I fell in love with it immediately. It has every book I have ever wanted to read and a few that I haven't considered before, but look forward to reading now. I'm not into collecting books, but I know a good book when I read one, and at the end of the day it does not matter that these classics aren't bound in leather. I bet Dracula is killed the same way in both the paperback and the hardcover versions, so get over it.

    Great Collection

    I started collecting the B&N Classic Series about 4-5 years ago and would take advantage of the buy 2 get 1 free deals that they have on-line and in stores for this great series of books. I purchased each individually after buying a couple of my favorite classics and re-reading them. Most I had read in high school and college, before I had developed my deep love of getting lost in a book. Now (many years out of school), when I revisit the story, I have a deeper appreciation for the characters and plot. I take notice of things that I didn't before and it has allowed me to become more appreciative of the author's efforts.

    I hope that B&N puts together a similar package on their "Library of Essential Reading". This collection never had a display in-store, nor were they discoverable on the web-site by searching for "The Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading" or any key-word. I, by chance, have managed to stumble across about 20 titles from the collection, and like the Classic Series, all are great reads. It would be nice if they would put the collection together, it would be so much easier. If not, it would make it nice if they would have a section on-line where the entire collection would be listed and available, as they did with the Classic Series.

    Great Set

    Don't turn your nose up because these are paperbacks, though the Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Series is quite nice as well. Paperbacks are most suitable for containing supplementary materials, an appropriate candidate for enduring the wear-and-tear inflicted by the most studious sort, while leatherbound editions are best for the experienced and familiar reader. He or she will surely desire editions for display and more casual reading.

    I have a couple of the Barnes & Noble Classics. They were invaluable, or at least, quite helpful in understanding the texts in a larger frame of reference. They include biographical information, time lines that relate to the material and that of the author's life, footnotes, endnotes, a section with comments and questions to ponder, and myriad other documents relevant for further critical analysis.

    I have a reading list for school, and had hoped to find editions such as these, some of which are not even available at my nearest library. I would consider many of these titles, among others, to be essential reading for a Western liberal arts education.

    At a price that comes out to $4.31 per volume, this is very well priced. If only I could afford this set. I wish they'd have a drawing or a scholarship contest or something.

    I don't mind the Paperback

    Well, to begin I think that the classics are a great way to stimulate intellect. After reading most of these books one may understand a lot more references and allegory in the poetry they read. Reading is a great way to stimulate writing creativity. And the books are all so original for their time. It's great to read them and to contemplate on why these books are considered novels of literary merit. The fact that they are paperback doesn't bother me so much, it's the context that I am interested in. When I first got them in the mail I was wondering where I was going to put them all in my tiny apartment as well as how I was going to keep them together and keep them in good condition. I realized that it's not so hard to maintain paperback books you just have to put them on their sides horizontally. It keeps the binding in a healthier state than standing the books upright when storing them.

    My 2 cents worth of opinion

    To all the wonderful discussions heard so far, I add the following pros and cons. <BR/>The cover design, the author's biography, the chronology of events and the scholar's introduction that accompany each title are very well done and they add tremendous value to the book individually and to the series as a whole. The prices are unbeatable and the fonts are easy on the eyes. All these are qualities that make the B&N Classics series definitely a few notches above its peers such as the Penguin series and the Modern Library series.<BR/>But I would have preferred that this acclaimed series includes also the works by these no-less-famous authors: the Brits (Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, etc.), the Americans (Ernest Hemmingway, Carson McCullers, Eudora Welty, Harper Lee, etc.), and the continentals (Thomas Mann, Albert Camus, etc.) And whatever happened to the rest of E M Forster's novels (Where Angels Fear to Tread; Maurice; and A Passage to India)?

    Awesome!!!

    All of these books are so wonderful. I have read them over my high school years (for a requirement) and they are so good. Most of them really teach a lesson. And it would be nice if these books were in hardcover but can you find any other place like Barnes & Noble that will do this. Also if it¿s in hardcover or not it¿s still the same thing, the same story. And if you really want to make them last, that¿s just how good you are suppose to take care of them, and they can last you for a very long time. Maybe in a few years if Barnes & Noble still has this awesome offer going on, I would buy it. These are books that would never get old. ¿

    Great for what it is.

    This is the most incredible deal I have ever seen. 200 of the greatest books of all time, all in one collection, for under 800 dollars with membership(which I have), is just unheard of, and is really a wonderful buy, softcover format notwithstanding. Think of it. How much would more would it cost to produce all of these in hardback? Barnes and noble is making these books affordable without the need for hardcover price hikes and exclusive collection editions(B&N doesn't currently produce hardcover classics). Anyone with a considerable amount of money can afford this collection, and that, to me, is what really matters.
