Each Quarterly mailing comes with a letter from the curator detailing the items in the box and why they selected them.
Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley – Value $10
Judging a Book by Its Lover – Value $14.99
The author Lauren Leto also included a “How to Fake it Like You’ve Read It” guide exclusive for Quarterly subscribers.
There was also a fold out poster included in this box.
Book Darts – Value $5
These little book marks are a great way to mark a section of a page without doing any damage!
Banned Books Mug – Value $12
My kitchen cabinet is already jam packed with mugs, so I think this is going to a book-loving friend!
Yay! Books! Magnet – Value $3.50
You can sign up for free Short Story Thursdays here, and every Thursday a classic short story will appear in your inbox, both in .doc and .pdf format for your smartphone or tablet, along with an introduction to the selection written by Jacob Tomsky. This USB drive includes past stories!
Verdict: I think this box is great for any true book lover. The value is a little harder to establish with this box since it’s more about the curation and exclusive content. The only thing that I was a little disappointed with in the box is that judging from Instagram a lot of subscribers got an additional bonus book with their box, like The Vacationers, or The Steady Running of the Hour. I love that they were able to give subscribers advance copies of books, and I’m super jealous that I didn’t get one in my box. I hope in the future they include these perks for everyone and not just some subscribers – it’s definitely subscriber torture if you have one of the lacking boxes!
