Q: I have 9 year old twins, a girl and a boy. I would want just the books only subscription. How can I ensure that they don't get the same books each month? Pink envelope said free shipping to Canada.Asked by Laura N., May 2022

beTWEEN the Bookends answered...May 2022

Hi Laura,
Thanks for your question! While we can't offer different books in each box, the just the books box does include a minimum of 2 books each shipment, and is often shared by siblings. Unfortunately Pink Envelope was incorrect in their review, and we are unable to offer free shipping to Canada at this time. If you'd like to ask any further questions, please feel free to reach out directly.
Thanks again,
Sara

Q: with the 3 and 6 month options, are they delivered consecutively or quarterly or every 2 months? Is the billing posted when delivered?Asked by Kimberly L., November 2021

beTWEEN the Bookends answered...November 2021

Hi Kimberly,
Our boxes are delivered monthly. If purchasing a multimonth subscription, you will pay up front for X amount of boxes, and then receive one box a month. Your subscription will then be set to renew for the same amount of time you originally signed up for, but are able to cancel at any time prior to renewal. I hope this helps!

My 9 year old has a hard time finding appropriate books that match her interest but also her reading level. This box solves that problem! I love that I can feel comfortable letting her read these solo without me reviewing too much or reading with her. Also love that there are usually 2 books in a box, which is a great value, but also guarantees she will love at least one book so the box doesn’t end up feeling like a waste if one isn’t a hit. They also pick some awesome goodies and we’ve discovered some fun new places to shop small through the products! Jillian is very in tune with the tween audience and does a fantastic job with these boxes!

Great box !

Given as Christmas and Valentine's Day gifts, these were a huge hit with my great-nieces, ages 8 & 10. The items selected were on target for both of them and I could tell were chosen carefully to make the most bang. Thank you!

Great gift for tweens
