Q: Can you choose the genre of books which are sent to you? Asked by Angelica P., July 2019
Hi! Thanks for reaching out. Everyone receives the same book with the
Paperback Bookshelf subscription. Genres change each month and are
announced through our newsletter and social channels. Subscribers may skip
a genre that they're not interested in. Hope this helps!

I have loved receiving my Weekend Warrior pkg every month. The 2 books in each bag have allowed me to meet new authors I wouldn't have discovered on my own. That each delivery also came with coffee & tea samples was such a pleasureable plus. I will surely miss this indulgence when they discontinue it in Aug of this year. The company is opting to go strictly "box" at that time and do away with the 2 smaller and less expensive offerings which leaves me out in the cold. The "Warrior" was the perfec fit for me content-wise and price-wise. So sad . . .
Loved the book selection. Author was new to me (Haruki Murakmi). I’ll definitely be reading more of his work! Thank you!
I have received a Bookshelf delivery each month and have enjoyed every one, I love this new paperback book subscription. I look forward to my surprise book every month! What is it this month? First hint is an apple coconut soy candle named "INCONCEIVABLE" There is always a little snack, this time Mr Goodbar, and either coffee, tea or cocoa. Cute book mark. Ahhhh the book is "The Princess Bride". I loved that movie. Princess Buttercup and Westley! I am making a cup of cocoa and curling up on the couch to read. Ooooh I missed this little pin! It says never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
Princess Bride, Never-ending Story and Fahrenheit 451 are my favorites so far.
Thank you for putting together these amazing boxes.
First let me say that customer service is awesome, Candice is so sweet!
I recieved my first box and it is beyond what I expected. I did a 3 month subscription but I will definitely be renewing!!! Best box subscription...❤
This is a great service for those trying to build their library! I’ll read just about anything, so the surprise me option is perfect. I love it!
Just what I was in the market for, complete with lovely packaging!
I do love to read, and was so excited about this used book subscription. I purchased a 3 month subscription. I received my first book and did not read the whole thing for the horrible language within it. I emailed them to see if it was possible to get a book without the language or inappropriate scenes and was told they could not do that. I gave them a second chance and was disappointed in the second book as well. I asked them to cancel my subscription since I was not happy with the book selections and they refunded me for the last month. I thought they would refund me the whole amount since I was not happy with either books, but that wasn’t the case. The only thing I did enjoy was the Simplicity Teas samples included. If you prefer cleaner book selections, I wouldn’t recommend this subscription.
I absolutely love Blue Spider Books. I receive a paperback and coffee sample each month. I chose the "Surprise Me" option for Genre and I have yet to be disappointed!! Each book has been something that I wouldn't have necessarily picked for myself, but I've enjoyed them all. The books are in great shape and the coffee sample (which is a generous size, in my opinion) is delicious. Customer service is really timely and helpful. I can't recommend this subscription enough!
I've gotten 3 selections from Blue Spider so far, and I've been really pleased with the book choices and the tea mixes. I was looking for a nice, thoughtful surprise in the mailbox each month - and Blue Spider has done a great job giving me that. Highly recommended.
Everything from the newspaper wrapping to the test tube tea leaves, this subscription is just spot on. The details make getting this in the mail such a joy, and the price is perfect if you are looking for an affordable subscription box. I was surprised how good of condition my used book was, and the tea selection was great! Wish they would include the brand of the tea, so I could get more.
The June Paperback Bookshelf featured The Wind in the Willows and the handcrafted fragrance item of the month was the Toad Hall body spray.
The featured book for February, 2019 was Ray Bradbury's iconic Fahrenheit 451. A definite must-have for any bookworm's shelves!
Don't panic and don't forget your towel. Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is another must for the paperback collector.
Each Paperback Bookshelf features a shelf-worthy paperback, a snack, a beverage, + a handcrafted scented item themed around the book.
