During the month of August, Penguin (the book firm) is giving away free book extracts and author interviews as part of a campaign to celebrate its 80th birthday.
Although, you need to download them, on a mobile device, with wi-fi connection.
(Which in my case is going to be difficult as I am now on my 10th call to Vodafone after my wifi account was blocked a month ago)
Anyway, for everyone else…
Every morning you’ll have the choice of two bite-size reading morsels to distract you from the Metro or Stylist gossip rags.
You can download the excerpts from www.summerofpenguin.com
As it happens, Penguin books was an idea first conceived by founder Allen Lane whilst he waited on a train platform at Exeter with nothing to read.
Oh, and while you’re at it, do check out Penguin Book’s website error page. It’s a joy to read.
