Random Box of Classics: SOLD OUT

Here's the deal:  for $10, I'll send you a box of "classics" - the kind of books you usually see around here.

What you'll get:

10 books, all hardcover. The "classic" status of a particular title may be debatable, but I won't be sending you any Dan Brown.

These went quick, will try and get more together soon.
