I think I just got myself in trouble. I found subscription services tailored to book lovers. I signed up for three services so far. So you will see a few reviews that are based on the subscription boxes. They are all book related, so I figure they kind of fit here too. I’m sure that I’m going to be asking my better half for forgiveness once he finds out what I’ve done, but since it’s all books and book related…I think he’ll understand.
I signed up for a one-off box from Prudence and the Crow. This is a vintage book subscription service based in London. For a mere £12 a month (plus shipping), you can choose from 4 different genres or choose the random option. The FAQ states that you will receive a vintage paperback from your favorite genre along with other goodies and random surprises. I absolutely cannot wait for this one. I have a feeling I will be going back and signing up for a continuous subscription.
I also signed up for The Bookish Box and while this one doesn’t actually send books, it’s all book related items and just sounded like way too much fun to not give it a try. Each month the box will contain a t-shirt and 3-5 other items that are all book related in some way. The box is $29.99 per month (plus shipping). Looking at some of the past boxes, I can’t wait and can only hope that what I get is even half as good as some of their past boxes. This one is a little on the expensive side, so we’ll see how long I can keep this one up.
The last one that I signed up for was Book of the Month. I had an e-mail giving me the first month for $1, so there was really no way I could pass up on that offer. If I continue, the cost is $16.99 per month. Each month you get to choose between 5 books that have been picked by the judges and guest judge. You can add up to 2 other books per month either from that month’s selections or from previous months. This one could really get me into trouble. I very nearly added another book to my cart for the month! My selection this month will be The Night Charter and after reading the description and the sample from Amazon, I can’t wait. Look forward to the review here soon!
There are a lot of other subscription boxes and services out there for book lovers. I may find myself trying a few of the other ones out there too just to see. I’ll post a review of each with pictures! And of course I will be reviewing the books that arrive!
