Just came across www.thehundredbooks.com, which also is the home of Squashed Editions. These kind folks have taken the hundred books you’re supposed to have read in order to be A Literate And Erudite Person and, well, squashed them. Let’s think of it as a kindness towards people who looked at authors like Dickens and thought, “I just can’t quite eat the whole whale,” and passed on by. Now you can try a snack-sized portion as an inducement to read the original in its entirety!
