do you despise eReaders and have tons of extra cash

...then this is for you: The Penguin Classics Complete Library is a massive box set consisting of nearly every Penguin Classics book ever published and is available on Amazon for only (only!) $13,413.30.

A rundown:
  • 1,082 titles
  • laid end to end they would hit the 52-mile mark
  • 700 pounds in weight
  • 828 feet if you stacked them 
  • They arrived in 25 boxes
My only complaint would be that Penguin Classics tend to be crappy books physically.
