Good morning, and happy Tuesday, friendly people! I hope your week is moving along with happy energy and good vibes!
I received an exciting bundle of book mail over the weekend: my Capsule Books package!
If you are unfamiliar, Capsule Books is a curated book box, but they do things a little differently than the rest of the subscription boxes. Each season, there are three curated “time capsules” to choose from. Each of the capsules is themed around an emotion, so the books that you receive are all based on your chosen emotion. They’ll usually reveal one book from each capsule to help your decision-making process along, but the rest of the box is a total surprise!
Capsule Books is the thoughtful curation service.
Each of the books that go into our carefully curated capsules is near and dear to our hearts. They are books we share with friends. They are books that we can’t put down – not because we want to know what happens next (although we do), but because they keep us company. We believe that the right book can change our perspectives, open our minds, and nourish our hearts.
For the Spring capsules, the emotions to pick from are Destiny, Romance, and Nostalgia.
I selected Romance. The book revealed for this capsule was Laughable Loves by Milan Kundera, by I was excited to open it up and see what the other two choices were!
My Spring Capsule contained.
- Laughable Loves – Milan Kundera
- I Am an Executioner: Love Stories – Rajesh Parameswaran
- The Forty Rules of Love – Elif Shafak
- One Merakin bookmark
- A lovely letter explaining the capsule theme
I’m over the moon about these selections. The capsule is insanely diverse, and not at all books I would’ve picked out for myself, which is amazing because challenging our comfort zones as readers is so important! The books in the capsule aren’t mainstream selections, which is beneficial for two reasons:
- You get to read books you might not have otherwise experienced.
- You (likely) don’t have to worry about getting a book you already own.
I love the idea of emotionally-curated book boxes, and I am so excited to get started with these fascinating choices!
