I have dreamt of owning a bookcase full of orange and white covered penguin books and today I have begun to make that happen. With my 30th birthday approaching I decided to treat myself to 30 penguin books to get me started. I was so excited to get them from the post office today and loved that each book stack was wrapped in brown paper and string.
In 2008 Penguin (Australia) released a series called “Popular Penguins” they were to reinvigorate Allen Lane’s original ethos – good books at affordable prices. I love the simple design of the books and the fact that I have a good excuse to read some classic novels, some for the second or third time and others for the first.
I plan on writing a review on each book as I finish them and on occasion, if the opportunity presents itself within the book, I shall bake or cook food from the book and share the recipe with you.
Armed with a cup of tea and a good book I should be in for a lot of exciting adventures!
