Prudence and the Crow showed up way sooner than last month and I couldn't be more excited! The time between the 13th of each month and about 10-15 days later are spent anticipating one of my favorite subscription boxes showing up! Based in London, PATC sends out a vintage paperback book in the genre of your choosing along with a few little goodies like tea and candy, a handmade book sleeve and a little library card (which I always use as a bookmark). My genre of choice is Sci-Fi!
This particular book was printed in 1968 but the story is copyrighted in 1951 so this one is a bit more dated than the others I've received - but this is really intriguing already! "The terrifying story of a grotesque but superior race that threatens to wipe out all mankind, not somewhere in the future - but right here and now." Yes! This is definitely the kind of story I love. I am a huge end-of-the-world storyline type of person so I think I will enjoy this one!
I highly recommend this subscription box to anyone who enjoys reading at all. It's sooo fun to receive a new book each month, especially since it's not the new 'hot off the presses' books everyone is reading in the world, but books that may or may not have been forgotten or lost in the shuffle, left on a shelf or given away to a used book store. They're books that you might not ever have known about if it weren't for these lovely people in London bringing them back to life and into a new home. I also really love the handwritten note from one of them telling about the book and why it was chosen for you and sometimes where it was found. They really make it feel like a personal gift.
Head over to www.prudenceandthecrow.com to check them out! An ongoing monthly subscription is just £10.00 (+£4.00 international shipping) which usually converts to around $23-$24.00 a month. Totally reasonable in my opinion - considering the added shipping cost and the wonderful experience you get.
