Penguin Popular Classics.

Though most of the reading material I pick up in Bangkok comes from used bookstores, these cheap editions of Penguin Popular Classics have given me reason to buy new. Aside from the fact that they're a very affordable 100 baht (about $3US), I'm really taken by their simple, classic aesthetics, from the uncoated apple-green covers to the iconic 2 pound price tag printed in the corner. And for the literary traveler, there are a number of adventure titles, with works by Kipling, Melville, Verne, and Conrad.
