Happy Birthday Penguin…

By Alison June 4, 2005 No Comments 1 Min Read

Penguin, that delicious purveyor of orange spined vintage classics (search them out!) is having it’s 70th birthday and to celebrate it has issued 70  tiny little books by renowned authors old and new.

I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to happen upon them in W.H. Smiths today, and I felt like I was truly treating myself as I selected 5 for £5.00…


"On Shopping Which Gladdens the Heart" by India Knight.


"Of Pageants and Picnics" by Elizabeth David.


"Artists and Models" by Anais Nin.


"Nothing Bad Ever Happens in Tiffanys" by Marian Keyes.


and "Something For The Weekend" by Jamie Oliver.

So thats it, you won’t see me for the rest of the weekend. Have a good one!
