You know I love my RDCBs, the rainbow of colors, the patchwork quilt of covers.
They are a little bit amazing when you think about it. Always four stories in each volume, each 144 pages. It takes a special kind of talent to condense a book in exactly 144 pages. Every time. Think about that guy's job!
But sometimes you need to step your game up a bit. You can't settle for the condensed version. You need the real thing in all its unabridged glory. I'm talking about literature, people.
I was reminded of this the other day when I ran across this copy of The Complete Works of Shakespeare at the Goodwill Store. I got it for a good price because apparently Shakespeare had a ghost writer named G.B. Harrison and this is one of the few copies where his name was accidentally printed on the spine.
I took it home and set it on my table. What should I make of this book? I asked myself. That is the question.
No it's not.
That is the question (in 3 fonts).
