  1. #2 is the Ren Center in Detroit, not Chicago.

  2. Perhaps they just got Candide confused with Cyrano… in a rocky outcrop… on Waterworld… no?
    I seriously would read this version of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court though.

  3. I liked Treasure Island with the two bicycles on the front. Interestingly when you click on the picture it changes.

  4. And nothing says “Classic Literature” like the Chicago typeface associated with pre-OS X Macs.

  5. Rough Riders or Time Bandits?
