I Can Die Happy, Now that “Once Upon a Book Club” Has Done a Lilac Girls Box.
July 19, 2016
Once Upon a Book Club’s subscription book-boxes fall firmly in the “I wish I’d thought of that” category. What a smart, fun idea to send boxes full of meaningful things that correspond to the books bookclubs are reading each month?
My daughter Katherine sent me a link to it after she saw my novel featured, saying how cute she thought it was.
How does it work? The details are captured wonderfully by one recent Instagrammer:
Quick rundown: @onceuponabookclubboxis a brand-new monthly subscription box that offers a novel (?) immersive reading experience. It includes a new book and 4-6 wrapped goodies; each gift reflects an event or plot point that happens in the book which you open at a specific point in the story. There are also discussion questions which will be posted on their Instagram account so that readers can share their thoughts.
I only wish I’d joined Once Upon a Book Club sooner, so I could see what’s in all those adorable little packages. 🙂 I have a feeling I know what’s in the one for Page 272!
