Q: What is the difference between book and bag, book box, book and treasures and bigger books and treasures?Asked by Vanessa M., September 2020

Books & Treasures answered...October 2020

A book in a bag includes: one used book in the genre of your choice, a handmade bookmark, a bag with a bookish design on it, and 2-3 handmade gifts.
The Just a Book box includes: one used book in the genre of your choice and a handmade bookmark.
The Books & Treasures Box includes: one used book in the genre of your choice, a handmade bookmark, 3 handmade gifts, and a cup with drink of your choice (hot chocolate, tea, or coffee)
The bigger box has everything that the Books & Treasures box has just with 6 handmade gifts rather than 3.

I did not recieve a book and a bag. Just a book. I didnt even know who it was from till I read the senders name on the outside of the box it was in. I was truly disappointed and cancelled right away.

I had such a great time opening this box!
The book they picked for me was a very good criminal trial thriller — always a fav.
The candle they included smelled so good and was so cute — it looked just like a coffee cup!
I also received a Moscow Mule mug, some great coffee, a pretty bookmark, and a reading light.
All of the gifts were wrapped individually with such care; it really made opening everything so fun.
They also included a personalized, handwritten note, which definitely made the box seem specially curated to the receiver.
Thanks for the great experience! :)

I've done a terrible job showcasing the items included but unpacking this was a delight! The body scrub (Great Gatsby - pear champagne scented) smells DELICIOUS. The magents are pretty as is the bookmark. The adult coloring book is cute. The book included is not something I would have selected myself but I am interested to delve in. This is exactly what I was hoping for with the book selection! The tea cup!!!!! I am in love. Both teas included sound amazing. This is beyond my expectations. A handwritten note was included and appreciated. I feel like this was packed with care and intent. I will keep this subscription going as long as I can!

Part one of my birthday gift to myself arrived today! The book blurb sounds like it's right up my alley. Also included: a super cute mug, 2 packets of hot chocolate, and little accessories. I got a pretty stretchy bookmark (see it on the book? it's great, never gonna lose my page because the bookmark fell out again), a sachet of nice smelling lavender wrapped up in a patterned cloth with a little key tie around it, some cute little rocks that can decorate my bookshelves, a lovely-smelling candle, and some more bookmarks that you can color with colored pencils. Overall, super happy with my box and I can't wait for next month!

This box is very well put together, the book choice is spot on, and the small business items featured are great quality. The handmade bookmarks and handwritten card are a very nice touch!

Updating my review- the selection offered makes for a great gift. We had some shipping issues that are being resolved, but this is a good box for a mother's day gift.

I love that they are gently used books so I feel like I'm helping the environment. And the books have been in genres I really enjoy. Plus the other little trinkets are so cool

I am really pleased with this box. The books I've received so far have been outside of my usual reading genres and I'm really happy with them. I also enjoy the bookmark and personal note I receive each month.
This is a wonderful box and is definitely worth the money!
