Five books, and a letter from Melville House, for Mother’s Day …


Listen, we know you love your Mom. We know you meant to have a gift in the mail by now, one she’d receive in time to open on Sunday.

We also know the days have a way of slipping by, until lo and behold here it is the end of the week and you’re nearly out of time.

Fret not, children of the world. Melville House’s Mother’s Day book bundle is here to help.

For $35 we’ll ship your Mom five books from our Art of the Novella series:

+ Edith Wharton’s The Touchstone
+ Jane Austen’s Lady Susan
+ Kate Chopin’s The Awakening
+ Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room
+ Sarah Orne Jewett’s The Country of Pointed Firs

Such a great deal! The bad news is the books probably won’t arrive by Sunday, which is just plain sad.

The good news is after you buy the books the receipt we send you will include a space for your mother’s email address and first name. We’ll then email your mom a personal letter, detailing the wonders of the gift to come, all the while championing your impeccable taste, enviable upbringing, and savvy consumerism.

So, while shipping a gift to your mother in time for Mother’s Day is unlikely, here’s the next best thing.

Head over to the Melville House store now and order mom five terrific books and a personal letter!
