It’s 2015! Allow us to welcome you to this sparkling clean and unspoilt new year. Traditionally, this is the time to make changes – and this year, we’ve resolved to make a resolution that we know we’ll enjoy.

We love books. You love books – either that or you’ve gravely mistaken the subject matter of this blog. So we have a proposal for you. Let’s make 2015 the year of reading a little more and a little better. We have just the thing to help you finish the books you’ve always meant to read, and discover a few that you never knew existed: something that we like to call Penguinspiration (or as social penguins would have it, #Penguinspo).

Whether you want to read one book a month, or more than one a week, we’ll deliver regular hand-picked and personalised recommendations of books that we know you’ll love – not to mention gentle encouragement, witty repartee, and a few exclusive experiences – straight to your inbox. With a little help from a certain black and white and very well-read friend, your ‘to read’ pile will be utterly irresistible for the rest of the year.

To get started, just tell us your number for 2015 and what sort of reading floats your boat. We’ll do the rest.

Sign up to Penguinspiration here and we’ll give you a couple of excellent recommendations to get your reading year off to a flying start.

  2. Reblogged this on Book Intoxicated and commented:
    Penguin has been coming up with some clever ideas to engage readers. I particularly enjoy this concept because it brings the publishers to the readers, which is extremely important. There seems to be too large of a disconnect between publishers and readers. I am glad to see they’re taking the initiative to change that. Plus, I’ve always loved getting recommendations from people because it’s that individual gauging my taste, but also giving me a bit of theirs. Then whenever I look at that novel (if I’ve read it), I’ll think of him or her. It’s a piece of that individual to you.
