I love this box. Before subscribing, I was so intrigued with Renee’s efforts to create a community for her subscribers. After confirming my subscription, I recieved an email from Renee introducing herself and emails to vote on the next months book and live chat times. I don’t use Facebook so I could join the group there, but she has made an effort to make sure that there is also an online community for those without social media!
As for the box I recieved, I loved that just as much. The book was one that I’ve read parts of before but I’m so excited to visit the rest of the information that it covers. There was samples of lotion bars and soap from female owned companies with coupons for their online store, a beautiful carved wooden magnet that I smile every time I see, and information on podcasts, businesses, and lessons that are all female owned and operated! I love that this box is clearly put together with love, thoughtfulness, and a focus on community rather than “filler” items.
I recieved my box during a stressful week and emailed Renee to tell her thank you for sending something that put such a smile on my face! Her response was heartfelt and encouraging. This box is absolutely worth it; not only will you get fascinating books, but you will make new friends and alliances as well!
I LOVE this box! I just recieved my third, and am continuing my subscription without a doubt. I’ve gotten very interesting biographies, history books, and several others! In this last box, there was a bonus fifth book! Customer service and communication are outstanding, and I love getting surprise books each month.
I just recieved my box and I am so intrigued by the books I recieved! Three of my four books were memoirs which seems like a big majority to me, but I appreciate that being the beauty of a used books monthly box; it’s a surprise what you’ll get. I am also so impressed with how quickly they got back on their feet. They are definitely committed to their customer service. They communicated throughout the delays and clearly made an effort to get these boxes out ASAP, even after facing damages to their supplies of books!
I only have one complaint, and that’s that I’m jealous of the other reviewer who said that she got seven books in her most recent box instead of the subscribed four! ;)
Although I enjoyed a fair amount of the teas I recieved, there are consistently issues with shipping the boxes on time and with different reasons given each month. I chose to try a different subscription that, although a few dollars more, has no reviews stating any issues with shipping or delivery. The teas are certainly enjoyable from true serenity and I understand that sometimes, there are delays or things get lost in the mail. I just didn’t enjoy this box consistently shipping several days after it was advertised to. If you don’t mind the box arriving late more often than not, this box is just fine.
