Prudence And The Crow February 2015

I am so excited that this box finally showed up!!!!!!  They were not accepting new monthly subscriptions for a while and when I saw they had opened it back up I jumped on it.  Prudence and the Crow is a vintage book subscription box.  In each box you get a book, a book bag, a library card and treats.  The books are almost always 20 years old or older and are used books they pick up.  You can select from a few genres or you can choose random and see what you get.  There is a little survey to fill out to let them know what you like.  Subscriptions are 12 British Pounds a month plus 4 pounds shipping internationally.  You can also sign up for terms but there is no discount for that.  Boxes ship on the 13th of each month and mine took just over a month to reach me but it can be anywhere from 10 days and up.  20150316_171146

The books come in a flat box with stamps and stickers all over.

Inside was my book in its bag, tea, candy and a pencil!

My book this month is Sundance and Other Science Fiction Stories by Robert Silverberg. This version of the book was published in 1976 but it is originally from 1974.  I like science fiction though I have been reading less of it then I used to .  Short stories are always great since I can get one done between demands from the kidlets.

This is the library card, which shows that it’s book 1 for me and the date shipped.  Also included was a little note letting me know they tried to keep the robots to a minimum, which was my one request of them…..I hate robot stories.

My treats this month were two different teas, a hard candy and an embossed pencil.  I was almost as excited about the pencil as the book.  I’m a bit of a nerd like that.

There is no way to value this box.  The book originally had a retail of $2.25 but that was 40 years ago.  This box is about curation not value.  I think it’s worth what I paid and I love books.  I did a little cull of my personal library when we moved so any excuse to fill it back up is a good one.  The monthly option is still open right now if you want to sign up.  You can visit their website by clicking here.
