The Penguin Holiday eSampler
This holiday season, Penguin's making it easy for you to choose what book to read next. The Penguin Holiday eSampler includes over forty excerpts from some of our biggest bestsellers, perennial favorites, and award-winners.
To paraphrase Charles Dickens and to push this holiday theme to the limit, we've divided the sampler into "books past, present, and future."
In the Past section, you'll find both classic and recent books that have become reader favorites. You may have read some of these already, and you've probably heard about most of them, but this is the section to find that great book you may have missed or have been meaning to read for some time.
The Present section includes bestselling and award-winning novels and nonfiction from 2011. From bestselling authors you'll recognize immediately to authors you may not know yet (but should!), this section provides a wide-range of books to choose from.
And finally, the Future section is for books coming out in late December or early 2012. If you like the excerpts, make sure you preorder, so you can start reading as soon as it's available.
Happy holidays and happy reading from your friends at Penguin!
