My set of 80 Little Black Classics finally arrived from the UK! Penguin, the book publisher, is turning 80 and to celebrate they published 80 Little Black Classics for 80p (aka £0.80). The Little Black Classics, according to Waterstones “celebrate the huge range and diversity of Penguin Classics, with books from around the world and across many centuries. They take us from a balloon ride over Victorian London to a garden of blossom in Japan, from Tierra del Fuego to 16th-century California and the Russian steppe. Here are stories lyrical and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions” (https://www.waterstones.com/competition/win-a-set-of-80-peng).
