LOL, this is my first box and I thought I had figured it out pretty fast. Should have known it couldn't be that easy! This will be a lot of fun trying to figure out though!
The first shipment we got was a bit mixed up genre-wise, but they made up for it with the second shipment! They even sent us two free books as a way to make up for the mistake. This month my husband got two nonfiction books (history and sports) that he will definitely enjoy and I got two YA books that look quite interesting, just as we had requested. Going to stay with them and see how the future goes!
I really like this box overall! My favorites are the postcards, bookmarks, stickers, pens, and pencils...so I do wish they included even more of those! They do include more sticky notes and sticky tabs than I will ever be able to use though lol.
I got my first month's subscription recently and loved it! I signed up for the middle grade auction because I happen to love reading and writing that particular genre. "Winterhouse", their pick this month (written by Ben Guterson) looks awesome and I can't wait to get into it! I love that they include little extras too, like bookmarks, book plates, etc. whenever possible. The book swag makes it so much more special and really gives it that small, independent bookstore feel!
