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.

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. :)

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.

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!

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.
