Things that are awesome

I saw the Penguin reissues of the Ian Fleming Bond novels on Book Design Review. Once again, Penguin knocks the packaging out of the park--shameless and stylish at once. If only they sold all of these in a boxed set with a bottle of vodka . . .

Only a tenuous YA connection in that if I ran a YA section in a library, I would totally shelve these. Reluctant readers? Oh yeah. James Patterson may have his "Pageturners" for "ages 10 to 110," but how can he beat these for pure mindcandy style?
