Blog-a-Penguin Classic

altariel and hobbitblue both posted about Penguin's Blog-a-Penguin Classic initiative. If you like in the UK or Ireland, you can sign up to review a randomly assigned book from their current list within six weeks of receipt of book.

I've only ever reviewed specific books which related very closely to my area of professional specialty, so I was entirely willing to try out the novelty of reviewing a complete random book (and was therefore hoping it would be a book I hadn't already read). I'm in luck! My randomly assigned book (Lucky Jim, by Kingsley Amis) is not only one I've never heard of, it's about a medieval history professor.

Update: Rumor has it that Penguin is out of books for this initiative. You can still sign up for future releases to review, but they're out of the initial batch.
