I’m a very avid book reader so I wanted to try this book subscription box I stumbled upon. I’m soo glad I did. I receive the non fiction box with gifts. When I received my 1st Box this week I was amazed. Ooh the packaging was beautiful. I didn’t want to open the packages. They really take time and care to put this box together you can definitely tell. I’m a subscriber to over 20+ boxes and I’m narrowing my choices down. This one I’ll surely keep.

Super Impressed
by Elizabeth written Mar 21, 2018
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!

Thank you for the stellar review, Elizabeth! The coasters are actually being mailed separately and will arrive in your mailbox very soon. ~Jamillah
Couldn't wait to start reading...

My first Call Number box arrived last week. I couldn't wait to unpack it and see what it contained. It was so much fun! I started the book this weekend and could hardly put it down. I'll be recording my reactions to it on Goodreads!

I am so extremely happy to have the opportunity to purchase this subscription box. So much so that I may opt to try the non fiction in addition to my fiction box. The packaging was impeccable. Extremely pleased.

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!

I subscribe to the fiction box with bookish goodies. The book selection is amazing. The goodies fit into a narrative around the book. I also didn't realize how much my nerdy heart would enjoy having the library card and call number.

Love this subscription!
by Inge written Dec 21, 2017
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!

Another great box!
by Jaye written Sep 24, 2017
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.

Monthly Joy!
by Marissa written Sep 06, 2017
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.
