Penguin Classics up for grabs...

Posted February 3rd, 2017

Back in the 1930's a chap called Allen Lane found himself stranded at Exeter train station struggling to find a quality read, so he decided to make good books easier to come by and founded Penguin.

He dreamt of selling books from a vending machine at Charing Cross station. Can you tell us what nickname was given to this paperback provider?

a. The Penguinator

b. The Penguin Popper

c. The Penguincubator

Get it right and you could pocket a beautiful set of ten Pocket Penguin Classics.
