Penguin Classic deck chairs

Picture yourself soon, very soon, in a deck chair, relaxing with a book.

And even though it's only the latest trashy novel, you can still display your literary credentials with these Penguin Classic deck chairs courtesy of Pedlars, the family mail-order business run out of a stable block in the wilds of Scotland.

We have three (retail price pound;69.50 each) to give away to lucky Friday readers. Choose between an orange deck chair featuring The Garden Party by Katherine Mansfield; a green The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler; or a purple A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf.

You can buy Pedlars' original and interesting products for the home, garden or holiday via their website or call 01330 850400 to order their catalogue.

For your chance to win, just answer this question (and include your colour preference): Raymond Chandler attended which of these schools? a) Dulwich College b) Sunnydale High?
