EXCLUSIVE PENGUIN SNEAK-PEEK.

Forgive us for shouting, but 15 years after NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND, Bill Bryson is taking a new journey around Britain...

...THE ROAD TO LITTLE DRIBBLING will be with you all this Autumn. In the meantime, why not take a moment to appreciate how marvellous this cover is.

"Yet this book is to prove that no matter how you travel, how 'successful' your tour, or foreshortened, you always learn something and learn to change your thoughts."

Some far-flung tomes to help you travel the world without leaving your armchair:  http://po.st/WanderlustPins

Stop press! We're thrilled to share the jacket for Elvis Costello's autobiography, UNFAITHFUL MUSIC & DISAPPEARING INK with you all.

Now you only have to wait until Autumn to read it.
