Harper Collins is releasing new “Olive Editions” of three popular novels. They are super cute editions, and the best part is they are priced very affordably too. The list price is $10, and Amazon is selling them for $8. The first three Olive Edition titles are Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Michael Chabon, and The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera.
I was able to check out all three of them in person at Barnes and Noble today. They are a cute little size – a little bit bigger than mass market paperback size. I don’t normally buy a lot of mass market size, but these are very cute and feel sturdy, more like trade paperback size. Perfect travel size too, you could tuck them into your purse or bag very easily. You can’t tell from these cover images, but the sides are striped and also exceedingly cute.
I own, and have read and enjoyed, both Everything is Illuminated and The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I like Michael Chabon, and have not read The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. I’m definitely going to get that one, and am seriously tempted to get myself new copies of the other two as well. :) They would look so cute together.
Here are the other two covers:
