Get your recommended holiday reads with #askapenguin and #penguinjourneys this summer
This summer we’re making it as easy as camping in the garden to get recommended reads from Penguin and friends. Just tweet us using the #askapenguin and #penguinjourneys hashtags with your holiday reading quandary, and we’ll recommend an audiobook, ebook or even a podcast to keep you entertained along the way.
We’ll be answering your tweets every Friday throughout the summer, from 12 – 1pm GMT, and we kicked off today with our lovely friends @PuffinBooks.
Our #askapenguin #penguinjourneys special schedule runs over the summer, and here it is for you to pop into the calendar, along with trips to the beach, epic car journeys and picnics in the forest:
- 1 August 2014 #askapenguin: tweet @PenguinUKBooks and @Ladybirdbooks for top tips and recommendations for reading with the really little ones

So whether you’re an alfresco chef, fond of a whodunnit, off on an adventure or in need of some camp fire stories for the family, we should have you covered this summer.
We hope you enjoyed our @PuffinBooks #askapenguin special on the 25 July 2014. We look forward to welcoming you back for more summer reads recommendations.
What a fantastic idea! We live and breathe booktrails and bookmaps such as this and love the idea of a little penguin going on all those journeys! hehe
We would like to recommend some great titles that we have mapped out in a similar way – such as your very own ‘The Separation’ set in 1950s Malay by Dinah Jefferies and The Seamstress by Maria Duenas set in Morocco and Madrid. Oh and let’s not forget The Fever Tree set in Africa!
Looking forward to further Ask Penguin posts!
