Orange Penguins

>> Wednesday, January 20, 2010

So while I was in Australia, I had a list of not only things to by, but books to read. I realised it's time to 'culture' myself and read some classics, and am now truly obsessed with the Orange Penguin Paperback Classics.

Since living in Nepal I have developed lots of spare time and my new favourite thing to do is read. I think in 2009 I read more books than ever before. I even re-read books that I never read properly during high school because I 'had' to.

So here is me with my first classic that I finished in about a day. Such an easy read, Breakfast At Tiffany's totally stunned me. Here I was thinking it would be a cute and funny book that would possibly mention a bit more about Tiffany's, but alas it didn't and lucky that I now know the real story...

Any recommendations for what to read next from the Penguin classics?

I liked 'Perfume' by Patrick Suskind, but it's a little morbid :)

I really enjoyed Lolita, and A Clockwork Orange. I'm pretty addicted to these books as well, wonderful, and so cheap!

I heard that A Clockwork Orange is good. Quite a few of them are morbid/crazy/affair related and so very scandalous!
