PRH Brings Back Penguin Hotline for Holiday Season
The Penguin Hotline, Penguin Random House’s holiday gift-giving book recommendation service, will return for a sixth holiday season on Tuesday, December 3, and run for two weeks. Penguin Random House staffers will be on call help recommend books to anyone who is trying to find the right book for someone on their holiday list. Hotline users can get recommendations by writing in on the website’s landing page, www.penguinhotline.com, about the person in their life they’d like to gift a book, and within a few days will receive back a personal note from a PRH employee or author volunteer with customized book recommendations. The recommendations are publisher-agnostic.
This year, the Penguin Hotline is adding a charitable component by partnering with LitWorld, a nonprofit addressing global literacy and human rights. The Penguin Hotline and LitWorld are aligned in their missions to bring stories to readers. For every consumer request the Penguin Hotline receives this season, Penguin Random House will donate $2 to LitWorld, up to a maximum of $10,000.
