Penguin Classics is celebrating their 60th anniversary in style with redesigned covers of some of their most iconic books. Several top-notch designers worked on some of the classics—most notably: Manolo Blahnik redesigned the cover for Madame Bovary, Sam Taylor Wood redesigned F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night and Paul Smith designed Lady Chatterley's Lover. The cover I especially like, however, is Fuel's take on Crime and Punishement. The design firm that works with brands like Adidas and Mazda really brought a Dostoyevsky novel into the 21st century with the above mod/brown-paper bag motif, it's part of a limited edition of 1000. Sure, reading this might put you in the mood to wander through the slums of St. Petersburg and commit random murder—but look how cool it will look on your book shelf! Get 'em while they're hot here and here.

This blog is really fantastic as I have gone through all the posts. I don't know why the blog mater is not interested in posting some more relative information. I request the blog mater to add some more content to this great blog. I shall link from my blogs to this blog soon. 
Regarding complete cure of HIV I was simply wondering why can't we find some thing useful in this direction. Since HIV and its treatment is an important issue or information we need more specific information on this subject. I have found a nice informative guide on HIV from following URL .
 This guide deals with How To Cure HIV Through herbal medicines and Holistic Treatment. Guide claims that HIV viruses can't be killed but they can be ousted out of the body cells using bio magnetic repulsion or something written. You can verify the guide by downloading that for free. for this site. I dreamt of a HIV free world after reading this guide. 
Hope that you will add more free information to the comment boxes to let other people read about this interesting subjects. 
God bless you all-
