I purchased a 3 month subscription because I was just so excited by the concept of this box. After receiving 3 boxes now, all I can say is it is a huge disappointment. The books themselves are ok, I have read all 3 but none of them were anything that really grabbed me. The included items are often cheap/poorly made or things that I would never use (cheap costume jewelry, an old fashioned nurses apron and a pack of trident gum) . I really wanted to like this box, but it just didn't meet my expectations.
