April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

(Penguin Classics)RED Editions
Penguin has teamed up with (Product)RED to offer (Penguin Classics)RED Editions of various classics, with new covers designed exclusively for this line. Proceeds from the sales of any (Product)RED merchandise goes to help the fight against AIDS in Africa, and according to the (Penguin Classics)RED website, 50% of the profits from the sales of each book go directly to the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.
While most of these titles are currently only readily available in the UK, Amazon is selling a selection of six of the titles here in the US. I'm hoping that Amazon will continue to release more of the (Penguin Classics)RED editions in the future.
