It’s the first in a new series of books that will mark the release of a billion books worldwide in 2019, with the first book being published by author Robert Louis Stevenson and publisher Random House on April 15.
The collection will be a one-of-a-kind treasure trove of information that will make a reader wonder what they’re missing out on by not having a library card to browse through their book collections.
“This collection will help the reader get a better understanding of the richness and breadth of literature,” said Stevenson.
“I know the book is going to be big, but I also know that it will be fun to read.”
The first book, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”, will be published in 2019 by Random House.
“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which was published in 1885 by Penguin Random House, will be released by Penguin on April 17.
“A Little Life,” a collection of short stories by Ernest Hemingway, will also be published by Penguin in 2019.
And, of course, there will be books about celebrities, including a collection by American author James Patterson, which will be on sale on April 18.
The book will be available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Russian.
“I have a huge collection of books, and I’ve been reading through my entire life,” said Emma D. Smith, a lifelong reader of fiction, and the author of “A Little Girl’s Book”.
“And it’s only been five years since I read ‘A Little Lady’s Book’, so I can’t wait to find my next one.”
She added: “The number of books I’ve already read has doubled in the past five years, so it’s really exciting to see the world of books growing and expanding.”
The collection is available in digital format through the Penguin Classics website.
