In April, our book club, Potato Peel Pie Book Community, turns three! To celebrate, we are re-reading three of our favorite books – The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Awakening of Miss Prim, and 84 Charing Cross Road. In addition to our fun read alongs, the Book Fairy is giving away a birthday box to go with each book. Each box is packed with some of our favorite things, “Peeler Essentials,” that make our reading experience perfect.

This is our Miss Prim Birthday Box:

Miss Prim

Peelers have asked us to link the various items so that they can find them for themselves.

  1. Who doesn’t love some luxury chocolate? This box includes Moonstruck Chocolate.
  2. Tea. CS Lewis would scold us if we didn’t include tea. This box includes delicious tea from Cup and Kettle Tea in Leavenworth, WA. They ship!
  3. InkJoy pens. These particular style of pen is an undisputed Peeler favorite. They glide across the page and dry quickly.
  4. A pretty watercolor bookmark from A Book For All Seasons.
  5. Book Darts! Another undisputed Peeler Essential! Read Diane’s explanation here.
  6. An Erin Condren* Hardbound Notebook with Rose Gold details and “Miss Prim” inscribed on the front cover.
  7. Erin Condren mini calendar stickers which are perfect for keeping track of reading plans or bullet journal style commonplace journals.
  8. John Senior’s The Death of Christian Culture reprinted by Clear Creek Abbey. There is an obscure reference in The Awakening of Miss Prim which notes that The Man in the Wingchair had been a rational skeptic. He went on a pilgrimage and heard a lecture by John Senior which caused his conversion. We chose to include this book because it is marvelous, it ties in with Miss Prim, and there is a fantastic book list in the back.
  9. The Awakening of Miss Prim. Because it is the book that this is all about.
