A book subscription box is about the book. The extras, are just that, extra. My first box contained a paperback, but at least it was a oversized paperback, but my latest box contained a $6.99 paperback. To pay $35.00 for a book subscription and receive a $7.00 paperback just showed a complete lack of thought. I don't care what kind of extras you include, although even the extras were not worth the price, for the price I expect more. Try the Once Upon a Book subscription box, you will be happier.
