Book Pairings

We love pairing gift items with books here at PSB, and this year we have some fun ideas:

1) Literary Onesies: Because they're never too young to be exposed to such classics as Make Way for Ducklings, Where the Wild Things Are and The Hungry Caterpillar. We stock these in 12 month sizing and prices range from $20 - $22.


2) Litographs Tattoos: For rebellious readers who want to wear their favorite books, these temporary tattoos feature lines from Peter Pan, Pride & Prejudice, Walden and more. Each package comes with a set of 2 tattoos for $5.

3) Book Lover Mugs: These new mugs from Seltzer are inspiring and sassy, and perfect for any reader in your life. Choose from 3 styles (our favorite is "Reading is Fun & Mental"); each is $12.

Along with these items, we also carry reading journals, book lights, totes and pouches --even literary bandaids! And don't forget we're offering Free Local Holiday Shipping this year to make your shopping easier. Season's Readings!

Folio Society Raffle

Wizard of Oz
As you might have seen in Scout Cambridge and the Boston Globe, the lavishly illustrated and designed Folio Society editions of classic books like Wuthering Heights (introduced by Patti Smith), Little House on the Prairie (introduced by Jane Gardam), Pride and Prejudice (introduced by Sebastian Faulks) and The Wizard of Oz (introduced by Maria Tatar) make wonderful gifts. And we also know that signed copies make wonderful gifts. Folio Society books are incredibly high quality editions that are beautifully and uniquely made, and Porter Square Books is the only bookstore in the Boston area that carries them. We have dozens of titles.
The Princess and the Goblin

Starting now when you purchase any Folio Society edition at Porter Square Books, you will receive a free raffle ticket for a chance to win either a Folio Society Engagement Calendar, an edition of The Princess and the Goblin, signed by Maria Tatar (who wrote the introduction), or an edition of The Wizard of Oz, signed by Maria Tatar (who wrote the introduction to that one as well).

But wait, there’s more! If you buy two Folio Society Editions, you receive three raffle tickets and if you buy three or more Folio Society Editions you receive five raffle tickets. The winner (one prize per person and the winner must be able to pick up the prize at the store) will be drawn and contacted on Sunday December 22nd. So getting a wonderful gift for a loved one gives you a chance to win a wonderful prize for yourself.
