Blog A Penguin Classic

I heard about a Penguin marketing ploy recently which meant I could get a free book in return for writing a review of it. I applied at Blog A Penguin Classic and the book duely arrived. Not one I'd have chosen myself, and in fact, not one I enjoyed very much.

However, and deal is a deal, and I wrote my review, and submitted it on the site. I was honest, adding some background information to try and disguise the fact that I really didn't have that much good to say about the book.

Several weeks passed, and I started thinking that Penguin had rejected my piece. All the other reviewers seemed to be much more positive than me. But I got a mail today, and my review of Selected Fables by Jean de la Fontaine is now published. Woo Hoo!
