Wishful Wednesday

Wishful Wednesday #6

wishful-wednesday

Wow! Gak terasa ya sudah masuk minggu ke-2 di bulan ke-2 tahun 2017. Kali ini aku lagi kepengen banget seri English Classics terbitan Gramedia Pustaka Utama yang diterbitkan mulai awal bulan ini. Kerennya lagi, buku-buku dalam seri English Classics ini diterbitkan tetap dalam bahasa Inggris loh! Harganya pun amat sangat terjangkau! Ramah di kantong dan dompet deh untuk ukuran buku berbahasa Inggris ^^

Dari hasil stalking akun Instagramnya @fiksisgpu aku jadi tau kalau sampe saat postingan ini kubuat, ternyata baru terbit 4 buku dari seri English Classics ini. Here they are:

a-christmas-carol

daddy-long-legs

the-happy-prince

sherlock-holmes-short-stories-1

Kalau melihat dari judulnya, sepertinya Sherlock Holmes Short Stories ini masih akan berlanjut dengan buku ke-2 deh! Dalam Sherlock Holmes Short Stories #1 terdapat 6 kasus terbaik sang detektif:

  1. The Boscombe Valley Mystery
  2. The Cooper Beeches
  3. The Final Problem
  4. The Field Bazaar
  5. The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton
  6. The Adventure of The Sussex Vampire

Masing-masing buku dalam seri English Classics terbitan GPU ini dijual dengan harga IDR 40.000. Dari keempat buku di atas, Daddy-Long-Legs memiliki jumlah halaman terbanyak (200 halaman), sedangkan A Christmas Carol hanya memiliki 128 halaman (paling sedikit dibandingnkan ketiga buku lainnya).

Apakah kalian juga mupeng sama buku-buku dalam seri English Classics GPU ini? Sampai jumpa di Wishful Wednesday minggu depan! 😉

Quotes:

“I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy, I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody!” – A Christmas Carol

 

” I suppose I might call you Dear Mr. Girl-Hater. Only that’s sort of insulting to me. Or Dear Mr. Rich-Man, but that’s insulting to you. But at least you will stay tall all your life! So I’ve decided to call you Dear Daddy- Long-Legs. I hope you won’t mind.” – Daddy-Long-Legs

 

“It is curious,” he remarked, “but I feel quite warm now, although it is so cold.” “That is because you have done a good action,” said the Prince. – The Happy Prince

 

“Crime is common. Logic is rare. Therefore it is upon the logic rather than upon the crime that you should dwell.” – Sherlock Homes Short Stories #1
