Today marks the anniversary of the publishing of Penguin's first paperback book in 1935. Though paperbacks didn't gain huge popularity until after World War II, it was a start.

Now THAT is quite a run! I've always enjoyed Penguin's selections as well as those of its various imprints. Great post JB :)

Thanks for appreciating my digging, Tori.


I would have mentioned who owns Penguin now but my shovel broke. ;-)
