Product Details

Books & More

Every book lover loves to begin reading THAT book that just takes them away. But in today's busy world, it can be hard to get to the bookstore and receive that personalized service that helps you find those perfect escapes. Enter Box of Books- tell us a bit about our reader during sign up and we'll send THAT book that just can't be set down.

  • GIFTABLE! These boxes make a great gift. Not sure what they like to read? No problem, just tell us what you can and we'll do the rest. We have over 13 years of experience as a brick and mortar independent bookstore, and we love to help people find a good book for themselves or to give as a gift.
  • Why are we the best book box? Because it's all about YOU! No two boxes are the same - we build each box specifically for that recipient and content is based on the survey you fill out at sign up that tells us your book tastes.
  • Choose to receive 1, 2, or 3 new and/or gently used books. We do lean towards used books so that we can put quality extras in your box (unless you select the option for new only).
  • Each month will feature a fun extra that all boxes will receive (see the Sneak Peek to see what to expect). In addition, each box will have 1 or 2 customized extras. We want your box opening experience to be like opening a present- we really want you to love what's inside, and we don't really want you to know what it is ahead of time. That would spoil the surprise!
  • HOLIDAY SEASON: while we will always have SOMETHING to send our recipients, to get the best customization we recommend signing up early as this will give us time to order books that are perfect for the reader. Just let us know your preferred ship date and we will adjust it for you.

December is INDULGENT!

We have so many great extras, it's hard to pick just one to feature for December! And we do want to be a bit indulgent this month. Each box will have either a pretty piece of jewelry, a wine glass, a coffee cup, or a sweet treat (not pictured). Prefer one? Let us know. Otherwise we'll pick the best one for you based on your survey answers. Note: not all options are pictured.

Order by December 31st to get this box!

This box is amazing! I’ve only gotten one so far but I look forward to many more! You take a little quiz to show them what you like and they carefully select the perfect books for you. They do an amazing job. I heard great things about this subscription and had to try it myself. I got 2 books, and a bunch of extras including amazing little chocolate chip cookies, lip butter, stickers, ext... they even wrote me a little thank you note! I love that they went with the Halloween theme as well. Definitely recommend this box! Fast shipping and great customer service!

I am completely blown away by how much they listened to the type of books I like. The extras are perfect and they even left a little note that hinted at the book I had asked for being shipped in the next box.
If you are reading this, please do yourself a favor and subscribe!!

Megan! Thank you so much for the awesome review! I'm so glad to know you loved your box. I rarely have both books on hand at the same time, so I was stoked to see them both when I was putting your box together. And I looked through all our stickers hoping to find a butterfly in a jar to go with Beautiful Disaster, but all I could find was the flower in the jar. :0)
Happy reading,

Even though I already owned one of the books I received, I really loved this box and how well they listened. I highly recommend this.

Thanks for the great review Gabrielle! So glad to know you loved the box. I'll toss an extra book in your next box to make up for the one you already read. ;)

Such a wonderful box!

These books have been wonderful and I can really tell that they put a lot of care into trying to make sure to follow the survey and if you message to make modifications.
Also the interactions I have had have been amazing!

Really loved the box itself but was surprised to get charged with Canadian customs that were more than the -rice of the box itself. I regret that I paid for three boxes and will be charged so much customs on two upcoming boxes.
I subscribe to over ten book boxes from US and many are even more expensive than this one but have never been charged customs on any of the others. I feel that it has something to do with how they write the value on the box. I will not renew because of that issue. Otherwise it is an excellent box. I just don’t get why I don’t have to pay customs on any other book box which has even of extras than this one.

Well Read Books said...Nov 04, 2021

Hi Iram,
I am very glad to hear you liked the box! Not so happy to hear about the customs issue. Let's figure this out as none of my other Canadian customers have reported an issue with custom fees. I will message you directly on the Cratejoy messages and we'll try to figure out how to get this problem fixed. I do sincerely apologize for its existence!

Read Carefully, But They Shipped Quickly

I ordered this just days before my granddaughter's 21st birthday, which I mentioned. These people listened. The box was shipped the next day and actually made it before her birthday!
The down side was that I didn't read carefully and I sent her a used book, which I wouldn't have done for a gift. My fault, and she was kind about it. But read carefully. I was a bit embarrassed.

Well Read Books said...Oct 17, 2021

Hi Debbie, thank you for the 5 stars and honest review. I am going to add an option that lets people choose "only new" so that this does not happen again. I hope your granddaughter still enjoys the book.
Happy reading,

Great box!

Super nice box! I received a book rest, a bookmark, and lip gloss! I also received the book The Hush which looks AMAZING and right up my alley! Highly recommend!

Well Read Books said...Sep 29, 2021

Hi Juliana! Thank you for the great review. I am so glad you liked your box and are excited about The Hush. I debated sending it because it's technically a follow up book to The Last Child, but I've read (and loved) both and you don't need to read them in order. I felt like you'd like The Hush more than The Last Child, so I sent that first. Let me know what you think of it, and if you want, I'll make sure The Last Child ends up in a future box.
Happy reading,

Excellent Box

I love this box! They did an amazing job of picking the kinds of books that I like (but haven't yet read). The items that accompanied the books were great too. I can't wait until my next shipment.

Thanks, Megan, for the great review! I am so glad we met expectations and picked books you haven't yet read!

October is all TREAT!

Who doesn't love a sweet treat with a good book?! And these cookies are absolutely delectable and page-turning pop-worthy: mini chocolate chip cookies from Oh, Sugar! Oh, Sugar! is a small business in Georgia that uses all natural ingredients. Trust me when I say you can't eat just one... or two. They are definitely a treat.

Each box will receive either The Little Book Holder or The Gimble, both by if. It will keep your book open while your hand takes a break until it's time to turn the page.
