How to Star in a Classic Novel

For $24.95, the customized book company U Star Novels will reprint a paperback edition of a classic novel starring you and your friends as the main characters.

The titles include everything from Pride and Prejudice to Dracula to A Christmas Carol to Anne Of Green Gables. The company will also create customized customized romance novels for lovers. What do you think–brilliant idea or literary cannibalism?

Check it out: “Upon selecting your desired novel, you must then chose the cover you would like and spend 5 minutes filling in the questions for the book you have chosen to provide us with the details we require to personalize the story for you. The books are produced with the answers that you provide, exactly as you entered them. As such, we strongly encourage you to carefully check the spelling in the questionnaire form before you submit an order – this includes proper capitalization of names and locations. We will not be able to refund your purchase as a result of spelling errors.” (Via Reddit)
