A New Kind of Bookstore...

So who knew you could add to your library collection of Classics while shopping at Target? I certainly didn't, until yesterday.

While perusing the book section looking for a gift for a friend's 2 year-old I came upon a rack of paperback books for only $4.95! The shelf included: Treasure Island, Oliver Twist, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and Huck Finn to name a few. Also for a couple dollars more there was The Mysterious Benedict Society.

After a quick browse of the store website I found dozens more prized between $3 and $10. The only downside to these books is that they are mass market paperback, so if you are into collecting Classics in hardcover or original looking bindings than these books are not for you. You'd be better checking out a used book seller or Amazon.

But if you are wanting a quick and inexpensive way to add some more classics to your personal library while you're doing your weekly shopping than this might be the place to look.
