first look in the paperback bookshelf

Our first glimpse inside the VERY FIRST Paperback Bookshelf Box.

what's in the paperback bookshelf box

Everything that we received in our Paperback Bookshelf Box. This month’s box was themed around, “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and had lots of great goodies inside!


So what is all this stuff?

Our box inserts.

This one lists each of the items that we received in this box.

And this one lists our BONUS items!


Don’t Panic Bookmark

As soon as we saw this bookmark we KNEW what the theme and book were! This is such a cool bookmark, def gonna hide this from the kids!


The HItchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Our book for the month is a cult classic and was also made into a movie. This space travel tale is funny and was also a New York Times Bestseller!

We were surprised at how thin this is, our version is HUGE – making it great for travel.


Mini Journal from Archie McPhee

Do you hide in books? Does it help you avoid the mindless chatter around you? Then this mini notebook is perfect for you!

The inside cover has a funny little list things to remember and the back cover has a cool little pocket. This fits perfectly into a back pocket.


Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster Scented Soy Candle

Named after the drink from the book, this deliciously fruity scented candle will not get your drunk! This is 8 ounces and hand poured with soy wax. We love the tin and the color of this one!


Brothers All Natural Freeze Dried Peach Crisps

Our snack for the month are these freeze dried fruit crisps which much to our surprise had just 30 calories (making it the perfect midday snack).

These were delicious and had a really interesting texture – a lot like a pringle chip!



And of course to go along with our new notebook we received a cute little fine point pen in a bright red color.


Just Enough for the Last Two Chapters from Book Lovers Coffee

How cute is the name of this coffee? Each blend is named after different book related ideas. This is a classic roast, we received a 2 ounce bag. When you sign up for Paperback Bookshelf you’ll be able select whether you want to receive coffee, tea or cocoa.


So in summary

Presentation: Everything was packaged well in our box and arrived to us perfectly.

Quality: We love that they send handmade scented goods and drinks from small businesses. Each of the items in our box was great quality!

Curation: We love the theme and think this is a really fantastic first showing from Paperback Bookshelf! We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them!
