CliffNotes on DVD

Wow! Remember when you were in high school, and you had to read a book? Remember NOT reading the book and renting the movie instead? Or just reading the CliffNotes?

Well, now you can do BOTH!

MGM has just announced a series of DVDs called CliffNotes Ultimate Study Guide Editions. It's the DVD of a book you have to read in high school and they come with the CliffNotes! All for the low, low price of $14.95! Some of the DVD/CliffNotes combos include:

- Wuthering Heights
- Of Mice and Men
- Moby Dick
- Les Miserables
- Henry V

They all come out July 24, just in time for back-to-school shopping.

Suddenly, I'm reminded of the words of an English prof I had in university. "Please don't use CliffNotes. I'm not against using a study guide...it's just that the school library has much, much better study guides than CliffNotes."
