Ever since I started collecting the gorgeous Penguin English Library classics, I’ve had numerous requests to film a tour video of them — showing you my entire collection! They are perhaps my favourite part of my book collection and the editions I choose over any others. It’s got to the point where I’m finding it hard to add any new ones to my collection because I’m sure that if I do the whole stack will fall down.
So, without further ado: here is my Penguin English Library tour!

I adored A Christmas Carol! Don’t have the Penguin classics edition, but I’m working on collecting the hardcovers. They’re all really pretty!

I’m so glad someone gave a shoutout to Evelina! It’s such an underrated classic but absolutely one of my favourites – I encourage any Jane Austen fan I meet to read it.
Gorgeous collection of classics also!
