Bookish Buzz: Penguin Hotline

This hotline bling can only mean one thing…

personalized book recommendations from the book lovers at Penguin Random House!!

If you are drawing a blank on what books to gift someone on your list this holiday season, it may be time to ask a Penguin. The famous Penguin Hotline is up and running, and it’s the perfect place to turn to for book suggestions.

If you live in the US, just pop on over here to fill out a short questionnaire form about the person you’re book shopping for. Then all you have to do is wait for an email from a Penguin Random House employee with your personalized recommendation. How easy is that?!

The hotline has been around since 2014, and although run by Penguin Random House, the staff doesn’t just recommend books from their own publishing house but from other publishers as well.

You can submit as many requests for recommendations as you’d like; even ones for books to gift yourself. Happy book shopping!


Will you be using the Penguin Hotline this holiday season? What’s the best gift book recommendation you’ve received?
