Stylish Bookworm

I recently read an interview about a stay-at-home mom that started a  monthly subscription business for book lovers. The business is called, The Bookish Box and it is "for the stylish bookworm". I signed up for the February box with the theme being "Galentine's Day". The box includes a t-shirt and 3-5 home, beauty and fashion items. The box was shipped on the 10th and I received mine on the 13th, just in time for Valentine's Day.
I had a t-shirt (unisex or women's cut), a cute book tote, book club notebook, bookmark, magnet (ovaries before bovaries), and a keychain. I liked everything and may re-gift an item or two. Next month, the theme is debut novels. There is also a special edition Outlander box that is being shipped out for April. The cost is about $29.99 plus shipping.

I also enjoy following book lovers on Instagram. I do enjoy all the creative and artsy ways they display their books. Never are the pictures realistic and I wonder how long it takes to set the scene and how many pictures she takes before getting that perfect shot. Here are the ones I follow:
The Bookish Box
Coffee Reading Writing
Writing Explained
Crime by the Book
Cozy Daily
Parnassus, Parnassus Next and Mary Todd Lincoln Coffman

I recently saw this post making fun of all the artsy IG pics and it really made me laugh.

I say he nailed it!

Do you have a monthly book subscription?
What authors or bookworm pages do you follow?
