Received my first box, already own and read one of the books, and the second will probably give away. It would help to give one NEW book and one older book. Since most of us that would even get a book box subscription are avid readers, there is a chance we are gonna have or read both older books you send. I think to include a newer book,(current year, or 1 year old) would make the box more worthwhile and appealing. Will give this subscription another try next month, then decide.
