I actually don't read a lot of books, just a ton of articles (really long ones). This was the last one I read and finished

Jane Eyre is a great book.  I found the cross-dressing scene well trippy.  That shit isn't in the movies.

we watched the 2011 adaptation a few days ago and it was amazing, a beautiful and exquisitely-done film. so now i have resolved to read the novel
 
50 / 682 pages so far

Yeah, that is a great film.  I saw the early gloryhole era adaptation when I was young'un and it freaked me the fuck out.  I would have been about eight at the time.

I picked up a Lovecraft collection a few years back that looked really cool but is not so well bound and was produced cheaply. It's pretty to look at but will not hold up well to handling as the years progress.
 
Here's a photo of it I found with GIS


 
I've seen some hardcover versions floating around that probably hold up far better.
 
Which collection do you have?
