Pam, a gr reader who is obsessed with all things about Penguin Books, has sent us in a image of a Penguincubator! Simply slot in $2 and out pops a random Penguin book!
Pam says,’I got a copy of the photo from the Penguin Archives last Feb when I visited them at Bristol University in England. There are a few of them left in private hands, even the archives does not have one and they’re worth a fortune.’
Maybe we should start a petition to get Penguin to start reproducing them again? They’d have to still be $2 though!

I collect some books too. I have a small collection of limited edition leather bound books that I treasure. I also have a collection of old hardcover books with gilded covers. I just love the way they look and feel. I don’t mind what the book is about. I just love to look at these wonderful works of art. Although I have often been surprised that I’ve enjoyed what was on the inside just as much as the outside. I wish publishers would return to this style of design for books. They are so beautiful and make a library to die for.
Do you have a special collection of books? We’d love to hear about them!
