Mr. Read a Book a Day gave me this service as a gift and it is just that. I love having books delivered. I am one of those kinds of people who go to the book store or library for a book and get completely overwhelmed. With Call Number, I open the box and there is my book. Feels like I won a prize.

We love this box!

I got my partner a three-month subscription to this Call Number for her birthday and we just decided to renew our subscription indefinitely. We love the thoughtfulness of these boxes, and we love the books in them.

We've recommended this box to many people and have loaned many of the books we've received from Call Number to friends, especially this month as friends ask us for book recommendations to celebrate Black History Month.

I teach English at the university level and, moving forward, I will include a story or two (or three) from Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah's *Friday Black* in any course I teach on American Literature. And Call Number introduced me to that stunning collection.

We get excited every time an email notification comes that a box has shipped. Subscribe to this box.

I love this box! The book selections are outstanding and the additional book-themed items are all fun and interesting. I really love that each box has a theme and a note from the author. I recently canceled my subscription for a time, because I got behind on my reading and the books were piling up -- adding to my stack of TBR books. But I love the books so much, I'm coming back! Thanks, Call Number!

I am new to Call Number and I am loving it so far. I subscribed to the nonfiction box for a few months and now I'm switching to the fiction box just for something a little different. I love all of the items that come with each book. And I'm being exposed to new books that I might not have found on my own!

I was, as always, delighted with the newest Call Number box. I am not normally a fan of poetry, but this book looks amazing and I can’t wait to dive into it. And the extra items are as great as ever. That Prince pin is one of the best things I hav ever received in a subscription box! Call Number continues to be one of the classiest and most exciting boxes available.

i ADORE my Call Number box. the themes are always on point, and the associated items are high-quality. the book selection (fiction box) is excellent; i love getting books from black female authors who i likely wouldn't have heard of otherwise. i highly recommend this box if you're looking for black literature + quality extras!

March was my first Call Number box and I was super impressed! I loved how much time was spent in picking out everything that goes along with the book they picked and the book sounds amazing. I was a little disappointed that I was missing my coaster that was listed as one of the items in the box. Still an amazing box that I would highly recommend!

I'm an avid book reader and love this subscription. I have the full fiction subscription (book and gifts) and I love it. It's so nice to receive a new book and specially selected gifts each month. I can't imagine ending this box subscription.

Some left low reviews because they "did not receive a book." The Call Number team sent an email to all subscribers informing them that the publisher ran out of books, and due to demand, the book would be delayed. They gave everyone who didn't get a book right away the option to download the e-book (I was also among the group that didn't get the book). They showed excellent customer service by informing us ahead of time that we may not receive the book right away.
