Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol - Pre-Order for $29.95 (RRP $49.95)
Matthew Reilly's Five Ancient Warriors - Pre-Order for $29.95 (RRP $49.95)
Dave Eggers' The Wild Things - Pre-Order a regular edition for $35.00 or..

and last of all (some of you may do a little uncontrollable squeal)

Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson's The Gathering Storm (Part 1 of 3) Pre-Order for 24.95 (RRP $35.00)

We have finally gone Penguin mad!




Deckchairs are also available, but are mostly impractical for two reasons:

2. There isn't any space to store said deckchairs. Sigh.
