Q: would you be open to adding an option that includes both fiction and nonfiction? i usually like to have a mix in one subscription instead of having to do 2 separate ones. Asked by Rosa M., June 2020
Hi Rosa! Thank you for you inquiry. We are currently considering creating an option for this. Stay tuned...

Q: I just received this as a gift but don’t know what to do. Asked by Grace C., December 2020
Hi Grace! Welcome to Call Number! We're contacting you directly via email.
Just received my first book! So excited to get started!
Really great selection of items! I also got a signed edition of the book in my 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 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'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.
I got my box today and I absolutely love how neat and classy the packaging is! And the book is one on my to be read list so I am super excited about that ❤️ Definitely will be keeping this subscription
The curation of items for this box is top notch and relevant to the book selection. The insert explaining each item and its relation to the book is the best of the all the book boxes I subscribe to—it is the only one that uses full sentences, proper punctuation and grammar, and an elegant stationary, I couldn’t be more pleased with Call Number.
Thanks so much for your feedback! We're glad you enjoyed the 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!
Thanks for your excellent feedback, Kristine! And for your support of me as a librarian scholar and bookpreneur!
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.
