1st box was ok. Call of the Wild. I had a copy unread on my shelf already so it got me to finally read this classic (it was great!). The mug was ok, along with the tea, bookmark, & magnet.
The 2nd box was disappointing. The Jungle Book, which I did not have. The tea was nearly identical to the first. The artwork went to goodwill, as did the mug, the little stuffed animal.
The books are solid editions, but I don't think this subscription box is for me as most of the stuff is just not Marie Kondo approved joyless junk.
I am disappointed in this selection. I never wanted nonfiction and had a very hard Time changing my genre to fiction. The website does not allow you to freely communicate with anyone. I have never seen a phone number. I did reach someone after two days of trying by email and was able to change the genre. My next selection was The Last of the Mohicans. I contacted the seller yesterday but have not heard. The language in this novel is incredibly dense, so much so that it almost seems archaic. It would not be my choice for a novel. I have purchased some classics lately and I know I could’ve gotten this novel for under $10. I have written to ask if I could have access to the sneak and peek but I am told that that is totally random. Why show me selections that I would love and then not allow access?
It is always so thoughtfully put together and beatifully packed! Great classic books are chosen. This box is made in high taste and style, I love it! Way to build a classics library.
