Why I Want It:
You’re probably going “Huh, Debz? Did you miss the memo? This book came out in 1862!” And you’re right! But I’ve wanted to read this for years, yet have never been able to find the right edition anywhere.
When I was six-years old I was introduced to the musical, and I’ve finally reached a point where I’m ready to read the 1232 page novel before the movie comes out. The only problem is that I struggle reading small text, but I want it unabridged. Plus, I’m a cover freak, so I don’t want an ugly cover.
Today I was clicking around on Amazon and found exactly what I need. It’s the movie tie-in edition, with the movie poster for it’s cover. It’s just a regular paperback, not mass market, meaning the pages and text will be regular-sized. And, most importantly, it’s UNABRIDGED!!! Here’s hoping it’ll show up in time for me to read it before Christmas.

And now I’ll leave you with the most beautiful movie trailer in existence.
