Top 5 Penguin Books – Part I

It is the 15th again – so it is time for reading. And time for sharing my favourite books with you. This month it is all about penguin books. This range of amazing paperback books – from classics to contemporary bestsellers – which just costs $9.99. And because they have so many wonderful books, this is just part one. Part two will follow in August.

Book of Longing – Leonard Cohen
Wonderful poems by famous singer Leonard Cohen – melancholic, sad, heart-breaking and beautiful!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s – Truman Capote
Well worth reading – even if you have seen the movie with Audrey Hepburn a thousand times. Because there is more to discover and the story is slightly different. But still amazing!

Cannery Row – John Steinbeck
A must read – especially if you are travelling to or living in California. A piece of history. A story of lucky and unlucky men. A tribute to California.

Delta of Venus – Anais Nin
Beautiful, shocking, romantic, professional love stories written by the most famous female erotica writer. Definitely mature audience only!

Fever Pitch – Nick Hornby
For all who are sad that the Soccer World Cup is over. But also for those who are not interested in soccer at all. Hilariously narrated by the world’s biggest Arsenal fan.
