Dover Thrift Editions

Nothing beats holding a book. iPhones, e-readers, and tablets may be okay for on-the-go reading, but turning actual pages, smelling real paper and ink, and looking at the placement of your bookmark to see how much is left are pleasures only afforded by a physical book. Sometimes, though, you can't afford a real book.

Enter Dover Thrift Editions. These are extremely affordable unabridged editions of classic literature from Greek tragedies to modern classics to Moby-Dick. Each copy is attractive and durable, allowing even the most cashless to experience reading as it was meant to be experienced: without technology getting in the way.

You won't find Dover Thrift versions of Twilight or A Song of Fire and Ice, only titles that have stood the test of time and are generally considered must-reading. Experience a book today, and read it while you're at it—Dover Thrift Editions ensure you can.
