The christmas gift of the Canterbury Classics

See also

Here’s an idea for the last minute Christmas shopper, now that all the trampling, fist fighting, pepper spraying, foul mannered, impatient mob of Black Friday is behind us. The Canterbury Classics are a collection of leather-bound books compiling classic works of literature written by classic authors and are available at Costco Wholesale locations for a limited time. Reasonably priced at $15, these books will be perfect for gift-exchanges at work, or simply a great addition to the other gift wrapped packages underneath the Christmas tree.

These classic tales feature collected works by:

Edgar Allen Poe
Jules Verne
Jane Austin
Mark Twain
Robert Louise Stevenson
Lewis Carroll
H.G. Wells

You will also find other classics like:

The Adventures of Sherlock Homes and Other Stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Arabian Nights by Richard Burton
The Iliad and Odyssey by Homer
Grimm’s Fairy Tales
The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri
And others

If you do not have a Costco membership, please refrain from becoming an uncontainable raging maniac controlled by envy towards those who do (remember, Black Friday is behind us). Although they might not be Costco-reasonably priced, you can find these Canterbury Classics online as well.

So if you are that last minute Christmas shopper, clueless of what to give that book worm of a coworker you’re exchanging gifts with this year or not sure what to give dad, pick up a Canterbury Classic from Costco (or online) because a nice leather-bound book of classics tales is always a good gift.
