About The Bookish Box
The March box was themed “Sherlocked”. Here are the products that were included in the box:
- Bleeves – Branded Book Sleeves
- Sherlock Holmes Designer Notebooks
- Two Beanstalk and Leaves Coffee Packets
- I am Sherlocked customised cushion cover
- Sherlock Designer magnetic bookmarks
- Sherlock poster
- Exclusive pencils from Pan Mac millan
- Sherlock Colouring pages
- Designer bookmarks
- A surprise book
The surprise book turned out to be a paperback copy of Who Killed Sherlock Holmes by Paul Cornell.
Someone has murdered the ghost of Sherlock Holmes. As a fictional character remembered by the people of London, Holmes’ ghost walked the city, and now someone has put a ceremonial dagger through his chest. What could be the motive? The small team of Metropolitan Police detectives who have The Sight find themselves pursuing a criminal genius who soon lures them into a Sherlockian maze of too many clues and too much evidence. (from Goodreads blurb)
The March box is fantastic. The February box had more of printable goodies such as book marks. The March box has outdone last month’s box because of the number of items included, especially since more non printable goodies are included. I was not able to get all the items in a single shot. The packaging was good and all items were bubble wrapped.
The Bleeves is the highlight of the box. This is a book sleeve with thick cushioning to protect your book or digital device. It has a velcrow fastener to close it, so it gives maximum protection. The padding is thick and not flimsy. I am always on the look out for covers that help protect my books and Kindle when I am carrying them around and this seems perfect for the occasion.
Yes to coffee! I love coffee and I was glad two coffee packets from Beans and Stalks were included as part of the food goodies.
All the items included gel well with the theme. Sherlock fans are in for a huge surprise. There is a cushion cover that reads ‘I am Sherlocked’. The box has a fair share of printables too. There is a poster of Benedict Cumberbatch and colouring pages featuring scenes from the TV show. The box also includes three designer bookmarks, a promotional bookmark and two magnetic bookmarks. Needless to say, the magnetic bookmarks stick to the Sherlock theme and I found them very cute.
The goodie list isn’t over yet. There is a small stationery haul too. Pencils from Pan Mac Millan alongwith a sharpener and eraser in a plastic pouch.
The March box includes a card that lets you know the theme of the next month’s box. I thought this was a nice addition especially since Books N Beyond caters to all genres. The April box is themed ‘ To the stars who Listen’. There is a hint that the next month’s book would a contemporary romace along with magical goodies and merch (or art prints) from a new artist.
