Time Reading Program
There are actually two different versions of these floating around. The original set were published in paperback in the 1960's but then another set (of 50) were printed in 1980 with red leatherette covers. Both series are reprints of classic works and are often also referred to as the Time Reading Program Special Edition. I haven't seen many of these, and I don't know how many titles there are, but as I find more I'll add them to the list. Have one I've missed? Let me know!

At least one of the books had the title changed between the 1960 version and the 1980 version; The Edge of Day became Cider with Rosie.
