read up on a good cause.

Thanks, Penguin, for giving us a great reason to give our computer a rest this winter and curl up with a good book. To raise awareness of Worlds Aids Day, Penguin Classics and (PRODUCT)RED have joined forces to bring you special-editions copies of six iconic novels.

The set includes books like Robert Lewis Stevenson's Kidnapped or Edith Wharton's House of Mirth, which are total literary classics (but unfortunately missing from many school reading lists). And to seal the deal, Penguin is donating 50% of the sales to the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.
