Best of the Classics.

How to rejuvenate interest in the Classics? If you're Penguin, you release "Best of" lists to help people choose what to read. For example:

The Best Sex
  1. Story Of The Eye - Georges Bataille
  2. A Spy In The House Of Love - Anaïs Nin
  3. Lady Chatterley's Lover - D H Lawrence
  4. Venus In Furs - Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch
  5. The Canterbury Tales - Geoffrey Chaucer
The Best Violence
  1. A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess
  2. Hell's Angels - Hunter S Thompson
  3. A Tale Of Two Cities - Charles Dickens
  4. Another Country - James Baldwin
  5. In Cold Blood - Truman Capote
