I have tried many monthly box subscriptions and unfortunately, this one is just not worth the cost. I love the idea and the types of products in the box, however for $40 the products are not worth it. I subscribed for 3 months and have received 2 boxes so far. Both books were thin paperback books published several years ago and worth less than $10 each (this months book is available for less than $5!). This months book also has horrible ratings. :( I am incredibly disappointed. At $40/month the book should at least be a newly published book.
