Penguin Classics has started a new book campaign for schools in the United Kingdom. Through the campaign aiming to familiarize school children with classic books, schools are offered sets of 100 titles. Each title comes at a price of £1.

I would like to share the full list of 100 Penguin Classics titles included in the campaign  on this page believing that it might be useful as a reading list both for myself and the readers of this blog.
