i've apparently had my head in the clouds, because i just learned this week that mark twain's autobiography is coming out this month- 100 years after his death, as he requested.  i wonder if anyone pre-ordered it a century ago?  his memoirs will be released in three volumes, and honestly the last thing we need are more heavy hardcover books to stack on our dining room floor, but i'm decidedly anti-kindle/ipad reader/etc, and very pro-book.   looking forward to lugging this one around! 

while i'm at it, i fully intend to collect all of the gorgeous clothbound penguin classics, the covers of which are majestically designed by coralie bickford-smith.  who has $272 and an extra bookshelf they're dieing to give me?
