A lot has happened in the book world this year, from the release of a previously undiscovered Harper Lee novel to the final instalment in the late Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, as well as all the other marvellous books in-between.

Here are a few of our favourite must-reads from 2015: http://po.st/MustRead

I Write About What I'm Afraid Of

In this video, John Irving talks about how he writes and his new book AVENUE OF MYSTERIES.

As we grow older - most of all, in what we remember and what we dream - we live in the past. Sometimes, we live more vividly in the past than in the present.

You can find out more about the book here: http://po.st/BuyAvenueOfMysteries

Seeing as we're celebrating our eightieth birthday this year, we had the bright and bookish idea of teaming up with TFL and Virgin Media to offer London-perched Penguins free literary titbits on the Underground. After all, what better way to spend your commute than with a good book?
Read all about it (and start reading our oh-so-special exclusive extracts and author interviews today): http://po.st/SummerofPenguin
