The Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classic series - i want "The Secret Garden" , "Edgar Allen Poe", "Sherlock Holmes", "Peter Pan", "The Divine Comedy", "Charles Dickens", "Stephen King", and "The Wizard of Oz" !!
I loved reading these books. They are so different from the Little House on the Prairie TV series. I discovered that most of that series didn't even happen. But both are still enjoyable. So whether you have kids or not you should get this series of books.
