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!

BookRiot Quarterly Box #1

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.
