Q: Is there a large print option? If so, I've found my father's christmas present!Asked by Karen R., November 2019
Q: Do you have to return the books at the end of the month?Asked by Rose S., September 2019
Nope! They are yours to keep!
Q: Would I be able to let you know if I'm interested in a certain book that fits the genres you do?Asked by Cat W., November 2019
Super happy with this subscription! I got it for my mother for Christmas and she gets so excited every month when her books arrive!
Seller is friendly, quick to respond, and accommodating.
Books have all been in like-new condition.
Shipping is always on time.
The books are thoughtfully selected! It would be easy for the seller to send along generic romance/mystery books, but she never does. My mother has thoroughly enjoyed every book AND she has not received a book she has already read- that's not easy as we are both bookworms.
Overall, I could not be happier with this subscription and it's an added bonus that it is a small business as well. :)
great books and great price
Not the best book subscription service. I received books that were from the 1970s and 80s and in not great condition. Not worth the money. This is the second shipment I’ve gotten that I wasn’t happy about. I cancelled it. **edit** I did receive a refund when I emailed to complain about it. I do appreciate that. The customer service is good.
I apologize that you did not enjoy the selection, and I have issued a refund to your account. I will use this as a learning opportunity to improve my service.
I am still waiting on my first shipment of books. It was supposed to be here April 20th, 2020. Now it’s the 22nd. And the tracking says will be delivered by the 20th. I will not use this subscription service again. Nobody answer me. Just get a tracking number. And please cancel me out. This is ridiculous.
update: I emailed them twice, they said they would send me a replacement box, but never heard from them and the 2nd and 3rd boxes were even WORSE! My 2nd box contained 20 year old religion type books and my 3rd had an old dusty book that was 3/4 of the way torn in half! Absolutely Awful!!
I typically do not review things good or bad but I felt strongly about doing so about this subscription. I've tried two other book boxes and was pleasantly surprised so I decided to try this one.
I purchased a 3 month subscription and my first months came yesterday. I was so excited to open it and get to reading, only to be very VERY disappointed. I opened my package to find 2 very beat up and dusty books that looked like they had been shoved into boxes over and over again.
I then looked at the genres and looked up the reviews/ratings from readers..and was again very upset. Both books had 2 out of 5 stars and they are both 12-14 years old. I really hope my other two months are better but I'd rather spend an additional $5-10 a book to get brand new books I'll enjoy.
I'm very sorry to hear that you were upset with the books you received. If you would please email us privately I would be happy to send you replacements that cater more to your taste. And again, I sincerely apologize.
What fun to get a surprise in the mail each month! Quality of the books are good; about 75 percent of the books look new, the other 25 percent look well loved. Selection so far is spot on. So glad I subscribed!
It’s like Christmas each month. Received 2 quality books in my box. One a hardcover, one a paperback. Good quality and genre I requested. Overall very happy with my subscription.
Really liked the books they choose for me and they were barely used, if at all. Great deal for the price.
I have a few book subscriptions and I loved that this is a used book one, especially since LDC is very open about trying to buy from quality sources like libraries! Also, all of the books I have received have been in practically new condition. Minus the bindings having the library feel, I would've had no idea it was used. And looks just as good on my shelves!
Also bonus points to the customer service of LDC who are very quick to reply and seem to be very invested in getting their subscribers books and authors that they want to read, even though the process is random.
Haven't received a duplicate book that I've already owned or read either, which is pretty cool. Great way to get new-to-you books! And for very reasonable prices!!
My daughter received this as a gift, and she was so surprised! She is really looking forward to reading the books that were shipped to her! I can't wait to see what will happen when she gets her books next month.
Thank you for the great feedback! We’re so glad you’re daughter enjoyed the selections! And we hope to keep up the good work!
