Penguin Books 75th Anniversary Contest

Despite how poor it meant I would be in coming months, one of my favorite things about college was purchasing my books for class. I was a Creative Writing major, but I took a great many Literature courses in edition to my writing workshops. This meant I purchased lots of novels, poetry collections, and short story anthologies. Penguin was often the publisher of a lot of the classics I purchased, so I have fond feelings toward them.

In honor of their 75th Anniversary, Penguin is hosting a contest where you can write a short, 250-word essay on your favorite out of a list of 75 books. The prize? All 75 books from the list. You can't beat that.
