Everything in my January 2018 box!

I picked Historical Fiction this month. My box includes one (1) newly released book, plus several bookish goods.

FYI – the bookish goods are the same overall the subscriptions. Here are the books in the other subscriptions (all hardcover prices):

PageHabit Bookmark. Every box includes a new bookmark and this month, it’s Harry Potter inspired!

Still following the Harry Potter theme, the back of the bookmark features the PageHabit logo with a wand!

Paper Clip. This unique paper clip has elaborate vintage detailing.

It’s quite large and it can be used as a bookmark too.

The featured image on the clip makes me feel like I’m looking through a crystal ball into a dream library somewhere. How beautiful!

Kikkerland 8 Tree Friendly Pencils ($10.56) PageHabit also sends environment-friendly products, like this box of pencils made of 100% recycled paper.

Packed in a matchbook case, we received 8 pencils with tree trunk designs. A special strip is built-in for when you need to sharpen your pencils.

Also included in the box is a letter from the author, Gregory Blake Smith, explaining how his novel came about.

Of course, this month’s featured book also included annotations from the author. These little notes make for a better reading experience!

The Maze At Windermere By Gregory Blake Smith ($17.70)

A reckless wager between a tennis pro with a fading career and a drunken party guest—the stakes are an antique motorcycle and an heiress’s diamond necklace—launches a narrative odyssey that braids together three centuries of aspiration and adversity. A witty and urbane bachelor of the Gilded Age embarks on a high-risk scheme to marry into a fortune; a young writer soon to make his mark turns himself to his craft with harrowing social consequences; an aristocratic British officer during the American Revolution carries on a courtship that leads to murder; and, in Newport’s earliest days, a tragically orphaned Quaker girl imagines a way forward for herself and the slave girl she has inherited.

In The Maze at Windermere Gregory Blake Smith weaves these intersecting worlds into a brilliant tapestry, charting a voyage across the ages into the maze of the human heart.

There is a short synopsis of the novel on the inner flap of the book’s cover.

Here is a sample note. They are handwritten on a sticky note with the page number so that in case it gets lost, you know exactly what page each note is for.

The author also generously provided trivia about the places he used in the novel.

It’s nice to read the author’s notes because it enables us to see the story from his own perspective.

Immaculate Obsession By John Affleck. It’s a short story commissioned in partnership with Great Jones Street.

The first time his Mom sets the house on fire, he’s halfway through watching the best football game of all time. The timing couldn’t be worse. But it’s okay, because he got invited to watch the second half of the game at Oscar and Tony’s house. When he returns home, he wants to tell Dad all about it, but he’s not sure he’s listening.

The text on this book is a little bigger than the usual, making it easier to read.

PageHabit continues to impress me month after month! Sometimes it’s really hard, not to mention time consuming, to find new and interesting books to read. That’s why it’s awesome that there’s a subscription like this which will do the job for me. All I have to do is choose the genre I prefer and wait for my package every month. There’s even an option for add-ons if one book per month is not enough to feed your hunger for reading! I also love the additional bookish goods they send. This month, they included eco-friendly pencils and a vintage paper clip which are not just cute but really useful too (though to be honest, this month felt the lightest yet – I’m hoping for more next month). Best of all, PageHabit gives back to the community of young readers all over the world!
