River Song knows the situation.
This is an UN-BOXING post.
We like stuff.

NERDYPOST BOX is a monthly US based fandom subscription box. Each box contains a 8.5″ x 11″ High Quality Print, Auto Grade Sticker, Double Sided Velvet Bookmark and a Colour in Postcard along with a few of the following: buttons, mini prints, notebooks, sticky notes, temporary tattoos, koozies, coasters, magnets, lapel pins, and more! Each box costs roughly £10 ($13.95) plus postage. Each month you also get the option to also receive a T-shirt matching the theme through Nerdy Tee’s or you can get both with a nerdy combo!
Periodically they do special boxes too, a bookmark box or a specific theme or something equally exciting.
In this box we got:
1. Poster – Quote from IT
2. Bookmark – Quotes from Stephen King
3. Sticker 1 – The Eyes of the Dragon
4. Sticker 2 – The Misery
5. Mini print – The Strand made by @reverieandink
6. Print 1 side 1 – Insomnia made by @littleinklingsdesign
Print 1 side 2 – Salem’s Lot
7. Print 2 side 1 – 11/22/63 made by @alissecourter
Print 2 side 2 – The Gunslinger made by @an.artist.has.no.name
8. Pocket notebook – Om Writing/ Duma Key/ King on The Shining/Full Dark No Stars
9. Pin – Church from Pet Sematary
10. Postcard – Iconic SK images!
Apparently a lot of people skipped this box. Either because they feared what horrors it may contain or because they don’t know Stephen King.
I’ve read one or two of his books, a short story or two as well, but I found his writing hard going.
His writing inspired so of the feel of Stranger Things and prompted other films and shows I’ve enjoyed so I was all for supporting this box.
Of the quotes featured, I only know IT (which I’m sure I watched when I was younger, but I can’t remember) and Pet Sematary Which I think I’ve seen too. Mentioned is The Shining and Carrie which I’ve also seen. The books I’ve read are not here.
I recently bought IT at the NSPCC book fair and I hope to read it next October, but having recently watched The Mist, I’ve been considering his books again, perhaps as audio books? I might check some of these out first!
There are some pretty amazing quotes here, and I’m realising I missed some when it comes to the notebook!
“All lives are different. All of them Matter or none matters.”
Do you have a Stephen King recommendation for me?
