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.
The box is plain, containing just what it’s supposed to and nothing more.
This months book is The Bionic Woman Double Identity by Maud Willis. I am too young to have watched any of the shows or read any of the other books so this will be all new to me. I think it’ll be lots of fun and I’m looking forward to spending a few hours reading it. The book bag is the same as last month but still a nice touch.
Here is the back of the book with the plot summary.

My treats this month are 2 teas, a maoam stripes, a Swizzels Matlow Refreshers, and a surprise in an envelope. That turned out to be a necklace with a pendant that is a little puffin. I am sure it’s one of the book publishers mascots but I’m drawing a blank on which one.
This box is about curation not value. I think it’s worth what I paid and I love books. I am always happy to get new books and I have no issue with older novels. The monthly option is still open right now if you want to sign up. You can visit their website by clicking here.
