Q: Hi! Is the only difference between the Full Suitcase and Backpacker subscriptions the number of books? Thank you!Asked by Stephanie K., November 2020

The Wordy Traveler answered...November 2020

Thank you for your question! As you are probably aware, the Full Suitcase journey contains three books and the Backpacker journey contains one book. Both journeys include a fair trade, sustainable tea and/or coffee evocative of the region we’re highlighting, a print from a local artist, an additional item(s), and a donation to Vitamin Angels that supports the nutritional needs of women and children around the world. However, the Full Suitcase journey also includes a premium item or items depending on the quarter. This quarter, Full Suitcase subscribers are receiving a pair of Italian-made, travel compression socks valued at $50. Hopefully that answers your question! Thank you for helping to make the world a better place one book at a time!

I had been thinking about signing up for a bit and finally decided, why not, just give it a try. Egypt has always been an intriguing place so I just couldn't resist. I also challenged myself by signing up for the nonfiction full suitcase to expand my horizons. I have always been an avid fiction reader but never nonfiction. I was so excited to get my first box and was not disappointed. I am delighted to let the journey continue and look forward to "going" places in the future with the wordy traveler community.

My first box and I am thoroughly pleased with it. The books were excellent, they allowed me to select two fiction and one nonfiction by simply notifying them by email. All the extra little items are just perfect I am so pleased with his box.

This was an extremely disappointing box. It had a mediocre book in it, that wasn't even historically accurate, and a bunch of little tchotchkes to just collect dust. Part of what the subscriber received in the box was a donation made to an organization. No problems with donating to charity, but not as part of the subscription box. This was supposed to be a Mother's Day gift, but overall was just an embarrassment. She has one more coming, since we did a six month subscription, but I'll be doing something else for her this week instead.

Holly,
Thank you for your review and your thoughts. We appreciate that you gifted the Backpacker Fiction selection. We apologize you thought the book was not historically accurate. In our experience fiction books even historical fictions books are not 100% historically accurate. If you prefer to switch your second shipment to the non-fiction selection please contact us and we will be happy to do so. We do try to fully describe what is included in our box and why each item is chosen to help people understand what they are receiving. We also try to make clear that donating to charity and sourcing items from businesses that donate to charity is the foundation of our company. We are thankful that the box you chose to gift...

Fantastic!

This is my favorite book box yet! Great assortment of items, great quality. I really enjoyed getting a feel for a country through the items, and the movie suggestions made it even better.

The Wordy Traveler combines travel and books in a delightful and wonderful way! The box came beautifully wrapped with books, tea, and fun country-related items. I brewed some of the delicious tea and sat down with a book and truly felt like I was being transported to another land! I even purchased a limited edition box - to quench my craving for more Wordy Traveler between subscriptions! This box is a must-have and you won't be disappointed. What are you waiting for - subscribe today!!! :-)
Thank you Wordy Traveler for a super awesome subscription box!

This is my first box and I just received it last night, so I haven’t had a chance to read any of the book yet. I really enjoyed looking through all of the different things included in my box, the cherry blossom charm was super cute, small art print, fan, and bookmark are very vibrant, andI love the tea cup! The list of things to help you discover more of Japan is a really cool touch also. I look forward to reading the book and enjoying a little “staycation” to Japan!
