Penguin Books

In the bookstore the other night I realized I have an unabashedly faithful relationship with Penguin Books.  I automatically assume a book published by Penguin is going to be good.

This started with The Phantom Tollbooth…

the book that started it all?

and continued on in a family trip to England, probably around middle school years.   Some of my best souvenirs were Penguin Books that I brought home to read…and probably still have to this day.

Now that Penguin has merged with Random House, I am doubting my allegiance.  Will Penguin lower its standards?

Will “Published by Penguin Books” warrant the same level of anticipation as in years past?

Guess which one I'll pick up first?
Guess which one I’ll pick up first?

I am unwaveringly loyal until proven wrong.

But that’s a whole ‘nother conversation!
