What’s a better Christmas present than a book? We surprised commuters at Manchester Piccadilly Station on the 12 December, and London’s Paddington Station on the 19 December with thousands of free books! Lucky winners could pick from a list of 20 fantastic books to give to a loved one as a present (or to keep for themselves).

We captured some of the excitement at Paddington, and asked people which book they had selected. 


You can see the full list of all the books we gave away here.


A very merry Christmas from all of us at Penguin!

  1. I would have chosen “A Spool Of Blue Thread”, one of my favourite books of the year to give away as a present!
