Q: Can I only order this box for a month?Asked by Aysha N., July 2019

You can purchase previous boxes on her Etsy page, but the website is subscription only. If you want a surprise box, you could subscribe for one month, and then cancel. You won't want to cancel, though. The boxes are always awesome! I subscribe to all three genres.

They have an Etsy shop where you can buy just one box.

I received the Steven Hawkins box as a gift and was delighted! The large hardcover edition was gorgeous. The items in the box were perfectly themed. The bath bomb filled the box with a great fruity smell, my hot chocolate had galaxy sprinkles mixed in and the bookmark was very cool! I loved this box!!

Love it!

Love my first Coffee and a Classic Box! I have always wanted to read Don Quixote. The book is beautiful and I love the bookmark and journal as well. Can't wait to try the coffee.

The only negative is shipping time and cost, but I guess that goes with getting shipped to Canada. It is worth it for the fun of getting the book and goodies though!

This was put together very careful and with a lot of thought put in to it. Everything is beautiful. The bookmark and desk size easel with relevant themed quote is extra special. The wax smells wonderful and the book is of fantastic quality. I’m afraid to put wear and tear on it by reading it. I’m very impressed! (Haven’t tried the tea yet but am very excited. It looks delicious). I can’t wait to read the book as well because I’ve never read it and honestly never heard of it. It’s not something I would have picked out from the bookstore myself but that is the reason I chose this book box. I want to try new things. Overall very happy so far. Keep up the good work!

I have cancelled all of my subscription boxes except this one! The quality of all the products is top-notch, the coffee and treats are fun and unique, the gifts clever and lovely. They use beautiful editions of the books they choose, and you can easily switch genres if you look at the spoilers and another title is more appealing. It's really lovely.

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt.

The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer's--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disaster.
