The Bookman is loving these............

Penguin Group (NZ) has announced there are 50 more titles coming in the Popular Penguins series. The new books are now available in bookstores.
These include iconic titles such as . . . A Room of One’s Own, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Brideshead Revisited, Dracula, Fever Pitch, Madame Bovary, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Persuasion, The War of the Worlds and Wuthering Heights.
With a mixture of fiction and non-fiction and a historical span that begins with Shakespeare and finishes at the end of the 20th Century, there’s something here for every reader.
Popular Penguins were originally developed to appeal to fans of the Penguin Classics series and to bring new readers to some of the greatest literature ever written. In keeping with the 1935 vision of founding publisher Allen Lane, the Popular Penguins deliver “intelligent books for a vast reading public” at an affordable price for everybody.

Since their initial publication in September 2008 the series has sold over 400,000 copies.
I'm not surprised, what a joy to be able to fill ingaps on the bookshelf and at such a good price.
