Okay, okay. So Penguin Awareness Day isn't actually about the publishing house, but wouldn't that be fun? To celebrate the wrong (but oh so right) Penguin, I've rounded up a number of awesome Penguin Classics inspired projects you can create yourself.
Every now and again I come in here and update this ol' post. And here I am, doing just that!

Working in publishing, sometimes it can be really easy to lose all concept of time. All around the office, you can spot books that aren't set to come out for another, oh, six months or so. This is a common scene around the HQ:
"Did this come out yet?"
"No Eric, that book isn't out for another year."
"What about this one?"
"That book comes out today... did you have your coffee yet?!"
