If there’s still anyone out there who still reads this blog, my apologies for the hiatus in posts that extend to two and half years.
I’ve had good intentions of reviving Eye Candy For Bibliophiles, but somehow never got around to composing fresh posts.
Good news! I’ve been scanning books over the past week or so, and have finally scanned most of the Penguin books in my library as well as the remainder of books in the general fiction and non fiction categories.
So to get back into the swing of things, I’ll start off with my small collection of books in the Penguin English Library category. They date from the 1960s to 1980s.
Penguin has recently revamped the Penguin English Library with new covers and includes authors omitted in the first series.
In alphabetical order, Jane Austen is first…
