Q: How much coffee comes in the box?Asked by Tessa W., February 2020

Using my Keurig refillable pod, I get 6-8 cups.

by Suzanne T., February 2020

Can't speak to the coffee, but I get enough cocoa for 2-3 mugs. When we got tea, it was enough for 3-4 mugs.

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.

by Shayla W., July 2019

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!

Just opened my box for Christmas. I honestly could not be more impressed. I never leave reviews but this was so enjoyable, I’m actually going to renew my subscription which I only intended to use for a one time purchase.

Update: Shelby reached out to me - explained what occurred and was able to answer my questions kindly and patiently. My box was shipped on Friday and in my hands on Sunday (today as I write this). I had cancelled my subscription because I only wanted to try one month out, but now that I have received my box, I am over the moon. The care and thoughtful curation that went into this box is very evident in what I received, and I could not be happier. I think resubscribing is definitely in my future. Please keep up the great work.
Placed my order last month to try out this box. Shipping policy states items ship during the second week of the month. It is now the 20th of the month, well past the second week, and my box still has not shipped. To increase my annoyance, I also have yet to receive a response to the question I submitted about shipping and delivery. At this point I feel like they’ve stolen my money and I’ve been had. I want my money back. It’s a shame because the box seemed really cute.

This is a wonderful box for any book lover. You get a classic book (of course) and a whole bunch of interesting little extras that are all specially curated to match the book. It's a wonderful, charming surprise whether you've read the book yet or not. The coffee was also lovely, and definitely gives you enough grounds to allow you to enjoy it through the whole read.
Shipping took quite a while. I suspect this was a combination of COVID-related postal delays and shipping food items across the border, but overall, it was well worth the wait.

We gifted a year subscription to our daughter who is a Junior. She has absolutely loved every box (five so far). Last month's Pride and Prejudice box was her favorite. What a fun, unique gift for the classic book lover!

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

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. Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong. 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.
