Q: Are you able to pick which what age group and genre of the books you would like to receive a month?Asked by Stephanie B., December 2019
Yes you can pick the age group. I wasn't sure which level my granddaughter would be at. I contacted the owners via their site and they were so helpful. You can always change age level or genre as long as you let them know before the next shipment. If it's going to another address, you should the cancel one you don't want and start a new subscription for the new address. Just make sure to cancel before they make the...
Q: Approximately how many books are in each shipment?Asked by Sandi H., October 2019
There are usually five. The books are in good condition. My granddaughter really liked them.
Q: The pathway at the top of the website says that Dog Eared Book are under science fiction and fantasy. Are the books always science fiction and fantasy? I want books that are in a range of genres. I'm ordering hardcover books for a girl that is going into 4th grade. Asked by Terri B., May 2019
No. They are all genres!
If I could put more stars for curation I would! I've received many books with this subscription but am including a picture of some of my favorites. You get a great mix of books with varying themes and characters, you get classics and books you've never heard of (discovered new gems this way), and you can tell the selection is chosen thoughtfully. Even though the books are used, they're in great condition. I've always received my shipment on time and have been very happy with the whole process. It's a very affordable way to own and explore books. I'll definitely be renewing when we need to spice up our library collection again.
During quarantine, we joined the Dog-Eared Books subscription through Crate Joy.
Our first box was great but the books were a bit too old for my toddler. I emailed Dog-Eared Books and they said they would keep that in mind.
This is our new box and it is PERFECT! They definitely remembered (awesome!!) and we got amazing books in near perfect condition. What great choices! I can’t believe how much we get, and the condition, for the price.
I love this subscription and look forward to one day visiting the store! Thank you.
Received 10 books and 2 were a little too gender specific. (unlikely our grandson will enjoy Strawberry Shortcake). Everything else was great. Books are in near new condition. Excited to see the next box.
The books were in good condition and there was a good variety for both my kids. My kids have been apart of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library for some time now, so I was shocked to see 75% of the books I received had come from that free program. Main reason we have decided to cancel our subscription.
I bought this subscription for my granddaughter as a Christmas gift that gives all year round. She has really enjoyed the books that have been sent to her. I appreciate all the help that Caitlyn has personally given me to help me decide what age range I should choose. She is very approachable and concerned about your experience with the books.
I got my first box today, and I LOVE it! The book selections are great and all of the little added extras are awesome. I can't wait to see what's in my next box 😊❤
My daughter carries the box around with all of the books so she can pull them out and look at them whenever she wants. We are looking forward to the next box.
