CliffsNotes Too Long For You?

Though I haven’t been in a literature class since the Truman administration (or so it seems), I still remember the titles of those wonderful classics.  Well, I didn’t actually read them… I was too busy screwing around.  I don’t even think I used the CliffsNotes versions… that would have been too much trouble.  Now I see this little find.  Book-A-Minute Classics offers… guess what?  Condensed versions of classic books.  I’m talking about the gist of the story in about three sentences.  How about Jane Eyre?  Edward Rochester..”My secret is that I have a lunatic wife.”  Jane Eyre..”Bye.”  (Jane Eyre leaves.  Somebody dies.  Jane Eyre returns.)  THE END.  Where was this when I needed it? stephencummings photo
