Book By You® Launches Personalized Classic Books Division

Best-Loved Novels Can Be Customized for Each Reader

LONDON, ON--(Marketwire - December 3, 2010) - Book By You® today announced the launch of its personalized books division, Classic Book By You®. Literary fans and readers of all ages can now add themselves into the plots of some of the world's most popular novels by selecting the names and features for the main and supporting characters.

This new line of classic books launched with three releases: perennial holiday favorite A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens; the thrilling coming-of-age pirate novel Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson; and famously funny, quotable Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Several more will soon join these three on the virtual shelves. Readers can include friends, relatives, co-workers or Hollywood stars in their very own personalized editions of these novels. In many cases the characters' hair colors and eye colors can also be included, resulting in thousands of changes in each book.

Each book can be purchased in either paperback or hardcover -- a new feature from Book By You®, which recently launched hardcover editions for all five of its divisions (Romance By You®, Kids Book By You®, Mystery By You®, Teen Book By You®, and Classic Book By You®). In addition, gift-givers can add a free dedication within the novel, add a custom photo to the back cover, or purchase gift certificates.

Founder of Book By You®, Mike Pocock, commented, "We're delighted to bring a new twist to these timeless novels. Our personalized editions are perfect for readers returning to a longtime favorite book, and can even be a way to introduce younger readers to the classics for the first time. With Christmas and the holidays around the corner, A Christmas Carol, Treasure Island and Alice in Wonderland will make amazing gifts for people of all ages! Our personalized books offer unique gifts for everyone in the family."

To purchase a Classic Book By You® personalized novel, readers go to the company's website at and complete a character questionnaire specifying the information to be included in their book. The company offers a free demonstration area where readers can preview personalized excerpts from any of the company's classic, teen, romance, mystery or children's novels. Media interviews are available upon request.
