Let’s take a look at the second BookRiot Quarterly Box!
This box included “Parnassus on Wheels,” a novella by Christopher Morley, “Judging a Book by Its Lover” by Lauren Leto which I’m excited to read, a tin of book dart bookmarks, a “Yay! Books!” magnet which promptly went up on my fridge, a banned books mug and a flash drive loaded with a introduction to Short Story Thursdays.

Yay! I received my first Quarterly Box from BookRiot. As those who regularly read this blog will know, I frequent the BookRiot blog for awesome book tidbits to share and when I saw that they were starting a subscription box, I quickly signed up. For $50 per quarter, I receive a box put together by the BookRiot staff, including an underrated book.
Here are the contents of my first box:
So, I’ve already read the book, Lexicon by Max Barry, but I definitely approve of its inclusion in the box. Also, this version includes little Post-It notes scattered throughout the book with notes from Mr. Barry about the people, places and ideas in the novel. I thought that was a pretty cool idea. The rest of the contents of the box are book-related paraphernalia including some pencils, a small notebook, an excerpt from a book releasing in February called “Never Have I Ever” and a “Book Lover’s Calendar” which I’m super excited to peruse. So if you’re interested, you can click here to subscribe for the next box.
This is a pretty cool article about how the five star system that Amazon uses has become out of control so much paid reviews have become commonplace. Well, Johann Thorsson over at Book Riot has a better way to see which book is the best. Read it to see what he found.
