Book Riot Quarterly Box #10

Here it is… the final Book Riot Quarterly Box. The theme is travel and it includes the following goodies:

Book Riot Quarterly Box 10

  • Alibis: Essays on Elsewhere by André Aciman – A collection of essays about what it means to travel, what drives us to travel and what we seek.
  • An African in Greenland by Tété-Michel Kpomassie – The book, part memoir, part cultural anthropology, recounts the ten years that Kpomassie spent traveling through Africa and Europe on his way to Greenland.
  • Literary Quote Print
  • Flight001 Toiletry Bag & Document Holder – A reusable, TSA-approved toiletry bag and document holder.
  • Coloring Page

Book Riot Quarterly Box #9

It’s that time again… time to look at another box of goodies from Book Riot & Quarterly Co.

Book Riot Quarterly Box #9

As you can see, this box contained all sorts of awesome bookish tidbits:

  • Bright Lines by Tanwi Nandini Islam with a bonus postcard from one of the characters
  • Dryland by Sara Jaffe also with a bonus postcard from one of the characters
  • A Make Reading Great Again Hat
  • Novel Teas for the cold weather
  • Merriam-Webster’s 365 New Words-a-Year Page-a-Day Calendar (which I am already immensely enjoying, for example, today’s word is hachure (v.) – to shade with or show by short lines used for shading and denoting surfaces in relief, as in map drawing, and drawn in the direction of slope. And now we’ve all learned something new!)

You can subscribe to get your own box at https://quarterly.co/products/book-riot and then you would be learning awesome new words, too!

Book Riot Quarterly Box #8

Time to take a peek at another box of bookish goodies…

Book Riot Quarterly Box 8

Inside this quarter’s box I found:

  • Skippy Dies by Paul Murray – This novel opens with 14-year-old Skippy dying and then flashes back and forth to show life at Skippy’s Dublin boarding school.
  • On Beauty by Zadie Smith – I’ve heard many good things about this novel featuring an interracial family from England having to deal with life in a small college town in Massachusetts.
  • Custom Books Pennant – A Book Riot colored felt pennant which I, of course, promptly attached to my bookshelf.
  • 3-Pack of Original Field Notes Notebooks – 3 pocket-sized notebooks for all your note-taking needs.
  • Read Harder Custom Koozie – For the frosty beverage of your choice when you are reading.

Get yours at https://quarterly.co/products/book-riot and you won’t have to live vicariously through me. =)

On Loving Books I Can’t Remember via Book Riot

This essay explores the question of “How much of a book do we have to remember to love it the way it deserves?” I’ll admit that I’m guilty of not remembering much about some of the books I love. How about you?
