I decided to try something new: I made a video unboxing of my Spring 2017 Quarterly Literary Box.
If you're not familiar with "Quarterly," it's a subscription box service with a variety of themes, such as crafting, cooking, and books. They have a theme for everyone. I subscribe to the adult lit box, which is curated by a different author each season. The spring 2017 box was curated by Jeff Vandermeer. The curating author includes an annotated copy of their latest book, 2-3 books by other authors that they recommend, and a few non-book extras. I'm not familiar with Vandermeer or any of the other authors that he included, but the discovery is what I love best about Quarterly. It's a fun concept.
In case you didn't catch everything in the video, here is a list of what was included in my box.
1. Borne by Jeff Vandermeer (annotated copy)
2. The Blue Fox by Sjon
3. Gutshot by Amelia Gray
4. Metal Water Bottle
5. Quill Pen ( which I've been using a lot!)
6. Borne Bookmark
I can't wait to see what comes in my summer box. Books by snail-mail is the best type of surprise!
