This used to be a fantastic value! When I first subscribed about 2 years ago you received 2 books and a DVD movie with an awesome inclusion with a few words about the selections and even who curated the box! A nice little touch! Then it switched to 2 books and some e-books! OK wasn't really too happy about that but I liked the box so I stuck with it. Still with the cool little "monthly letter". The e-books at first were kind of an issue to retrieve but they seemed to iron that out. Then the emails stopped coming. No more e-books. No more "Curated by" page. Add to that these are not new books. These are books that can be ordered from Amazon in Used - Good or Used - Acceptable condition, which is what they appear to be, for 5 or 6 dollars. One of the books I just received definitely looks "slightly loved". So what am I really paying for now?!
