Who says great literature is inaccessible? I was talking just the other day with Angus -- the namesake himself -- about the ultracondensed plot of War and Peace...and today I've discovered its online brethren. Why take James Joyce at his word, when you can read Ulysses For Dummies? Who would waste hours with Oliver Twist when you can order it in daily five-minute email installments...for some bizarre reason?

I think the Book-A-Minute Classics are my favorite...check out their versions of Hamlet ["Whine whine whine...To be or not to be...I'm dead."], Catcher in the Rye, and Fellowship of the Ring...hee hee hee.
