Mystery Jars contain the essence of the world. River stones from the Ganges. Fragments of old love letters. Gold dust from Venice. Peppercorns from Zanzibar. Feathers from the Amazon. This set happens to contain quotes from great books. So many people read digital books that we don't get to see them on shelves anymore. These jars promote and celebrate great books by capturing a fragment of the author's imagination.
