Literary Dream Crate - Used Books
Literary Dream Crate has three options to choose from. The one or two book envelope sends you gently used books in the genre of your choice! We also have our brand NEW bath & body book box that includes one hardcover book, one large bath bomb, one lotion, and one body spray! NOTE: This is a RANDOMIZED book subscription!
  • We now offer a bath & body book box! This box includes one hardcover book in the genre of your choosing, one book themed button, one large bath bomb, one body lotion, and one body spray per month! All for $25.99 with FREE shipping!
  • We often source books purchased from local libraries in order to give back to the community so they may have previous library markings! We also source from other used bookstores around the state, and large orders online of used books! Each order will likely receive a mix of these options. We're mentioning this here so that you know what to expect! All options are pictured above!
  • Single month subscription cancellations: If a cancellation is recieved within 5 days of the intial purchase or renewal date you will receive a refund and no shipment for the month. If a refund is requested after the initial 5 days no refund will be given and the subscriber will receive the coming months product.
  • Multiple month prepay subscription cancellations: Anything above a one month subscription is a final sale. No refund will be given. However, we would love to work with any subscriber in order to enhance their subscription to better fit their preferences, change the genre choice, etc.
  • We often send crime and/or murder mystery type books rather than cozy mysteries. We also send a wide range of romance from Nora Roberts to E.L. James. It is important to note that if you have specific tastes in books this subscription is NOT for you! This is a randomized book subscription coming in two genres that offer a wide range of topics.

If you enjoy book mail, this is a wonderful purchase for you or a gift for another book lover. I received two books in very good condition.
You get a surprise each month as you receive your books. Its almost like Christmas.
And it encourages you to try new authors you may not have read otherwise.

What fun

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!

I got a subscription for my mom, and she absolutely adored the product! The owner was super kind and made sure all the books were of high quality for her. Literary Dream Crate is by far one of the best start-up businesses, and I recommend it to anyone who loves to read! It’s a great price, as well! Thank you!!!

Great Mother's Day gift

This was a gift from my son and daughter-in-law for Mother's Day. The books in the first shipment were not ones I had read. I flew through the first one, and am into the second already.

I'd not heard of Cratejoy before, but it's a great way to share a gift combo while using items already in existence.

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.

This subscription box is a really easy gift idea or a nice way to get books to add to the collection. It gives me something to look forward to every month and the customer service is absolutely amazing. They will work with you about almost anything. For only $10 bucks I would recommend.
