Nice find

Gets the kids reading love it
If they are from Iceland I will add some heat..
Almost all of the of thse look like classics that are long out of copyright, so should be available in non-Penguin editions for not very much, or for free with any of various e-reading apps or devices. thank you for sharing - it's a nice idea to encourage reading, but I'm not sure it's as good value as Penguin might like to imply with their high RRPs!

I think that is quite unfair, quite a few on the list are non English originals so there is a cost to translation. Penguin classics are usually good modern translations that are way better than the translated novels you find on the Internet.
Nice find, some great titles there

Yes they will be good translations and they are actual books as opposed to digital copies. Yes, you could find most for free but try and find 100 ereaders for £100. I own an ereader but still buy paperbacks if there cheaper.

A lot of the free versions of these books are copy/pasted from other free digital editions without any proof-reading. I've actually seen some changes made to classic text in these free copies which obviously isn't great. If the quality is good £100 is ok.
This promotion is open to primary schools, secondary schools, sixth form colleges and other secondary education establishments in the United Kingdom only (Eligible Schools). All deliveries must be made to a verified UK schools/institutional address.
they have left out Lady Chatterley's Lover
£1 each for a chocolate bar? Cold for me ;-)

Sure
:D:D:D
These are the kind of classic book that you get in Wordsworth editions in The Works for £2 or 3 for a pound, so 100 for £100 is good value.
The Wordsworth ones tend to use thinner, cheaper paper which is fine for throwaway reading or careful adults but wouldn't last a few months in a school. Penguin paperbacks usually last a good while and are indeed a good investment at this price. Particularly with the slow death of public libraries

Don't forget postage of £6.95 for 100 books. Or postage for a set of 30 for £150.
it's a shame that's it's not possible to gift them to a school, as I imagine the tight budgets schools have to work to won't allow such "luxuries"

I don't get how this is a deal if I can't actually order them?
Are these a bit advanced for primary school age children?

Good find, though.

I suppose you could.

If it's only the delivery address that needs to be a school then you could have it delivered right to them.

But I'd ask the school you're thinking of first lol.

You would be incredibly hard pushed to get these printed by anyone other than penguin for less than £1 per book. Even though all the titles are going to be available on Gutenberg it's pretty cracking as a deal for physical books.
Reason these are cheap is that they struggle to sell them now with them being available free on the internet and schools are one of the few places where it would make a good investment. A cheaper way to get them would be to buy a kindle/ereader and download them for free or you could even use an app on a pc/tablet. Makes you realise how much profit penguin have been making on these over the years.
