75th Anniversary of Penguin Books!

Friday, July 30, 2010

Today marks the 75th Anniversary of Penguin Books!!

Penguin Group is made up of many successful publishing imprints -- I can't list them all here but some of my favorites are Berkley, New American Library, Viking (and Pamela Dorman/Viking), G.P. Putnam's Sons, Amy Einhorn/Putnam, Dutton, and many more. And the publicists I've worked with at Penguin have been incredibly friendly and easy to work with. The majority of specific "review" books that have been reviewed here at Take Me Away have been from Penguin.

You can explore the site dedicated to the celebration of Penguin's anniversary here. Some of the highlights include the first 10 authors/books published by Penguin in 1935 including Agatha Christie and Ernest Hemingway, a timeline of Penguin's history, as well as a gallery of pictures, and much more!

In honor of their anniversary, Penguin has allowed me to choose from 75 books that represent Penguin's 75 years of publishing for a giveaway here at Take Me Away. I have chosen a modern classic that I haven't read yet but will be adding to my collection soon. The book I've chosen will certainly "take you away" in its story to a place that you know I adore....

The giveaway will be:

The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster
