Favorite Books: From the 180 books chosen, our favorites were Barbarian Days: a Surfing Life, All Things Cease to Appear, Red Rising, The Alice Network, True North, and Dodgers.
Items Included: Our June "Summer of Sonder" boxes were a hit! Sonder is defined as the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness. Every box reflected this concept with bookmarks, stickers, ginger candies, puzzle piece charms, gems, a beautiful "Sonder" print, Summer Tranquilty tea, a stamped envelope for a letter exchange, and a hand-selected book for each subscriber!
