One of the most famous publishing houses, Penguin, turns 75 years old TODAY. Founder Allen Lane chose ten titles in 1935 and published them in England, complete with the stamp of that cute little black and white bird. By 1937, they set up shop in Holy Trinity Church Crypt in New York City.
Make sure you check out their anniversary website which is full of fun photos, cover art, and even a way to follow that orange Mini. www.penguin75.com
So to help them celebrate (and because I love the cheeky little penguin) I am giving away TWO books. Since this is a milestone for Penguin, I thought I’d make it a sort of past-meets-present-sister-act.
You can win a copy of WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Emily Bronte and a copy of THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jasper Fforde (based, of course, on characters created by Charlotte Bronte).
All you have to do to enter to win these fantastic literary pieces is:
1) Wish Happy 75th Birthday to Penguin on your Facebook or on Twitter with a link to this post
2) In the comment section for this post, put your name, email and a link to the post you made (see #1).
That’s it! I will announce the winner one week from today, Friday, August 6. Happy Reading.
Many thanks to Lindsay at Penguin for providing the titles for giveaway.
