Introducing the “There is No Explanation” tote bag contest (UPDATED)


There can never be too many totes in the world, which is why we’re excited to announce Melville House’s “There is No Explanation” bag — a new version of our all cotton, black and white classic.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we have a contest for you: identify the author of the quote and the book from which it comes (hint: it’s a Melville House book).

The first person to do so correctly wins a free bag and a copy of the mystery book. 

(Congrats to @bostonbibliophl for knowing the story behind our bag’s quote: Tolstoy’s The Death of Ivan Ilyich)

But let’s keep this contest rolling. Follow us on Twitter and use the #melvilletote hashtag for a chance to win one of our new bags.

If you prefer not to enter a Twitter contest and would rather order the bag right away, head over to our online store, located HERE.

Good luck!
