If you know you want to gift someone a book this year, but are unsure what to get them and don’t want to just slap ‘em with a gift card, why not try our Penguin Holiday eSampler?
This is a collection of over forty excerpts from some of our favorite 2011 books, recent classics, and previews of a few upcoming 2012 titles.
And did I mention it’s free? It’s like we’ve curated a tiny little bookstore for you to browse through (except in this bookstore the wearing of pants is not required, and we definitely encourage excessive cookie eating/Robyn sing-a-long-ing), so hopefully you’ll find something you like. You might want to start apologizing to your to-read lists now.

Although we are partial to our ever expanding hardcover classics collection, The English company The Folio Society has contributed some truly amazing additions to the field. Above is Bulgakov’s The Master & Margarita, a personal favorite. If you’re looking for a more portable version, it’s also available in paperback stateside from the wonderfully reliable Penguin Classics.
I wonder how Twain would feel about this
In Mark Twain’s house, there is a Lego Twain.
