New Release: Abridged Classics

I know that many of us could use a bit of added levity in our lives these days and, as we are bookish people, Abridged Classics by cartoonist John Atkinson is probably a good place to find some. Although the subtitle will be inaccurate for most of us--Brief Summaries of Books You Were Supposed to Read But Probably Didn't--since we don't dodge the classics, we can find these very brief comics funny because we are, in fact, in the know.

With one or two page spreads on over 100 books, this is a fun read that even Z (who is heading to high school and will be expected to read a couple of these) enjoyed.

Very briefly,

p.s. I received this book from the publisher.
