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.
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
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!
Like my first box. can wait to get another.. want more James Patterson....Books
Thanks so much for the review. We’re glad you liked your first box! We will be sure to send you more James Patterson next month!
If you love to read, then this subscription is def for you! I love the books ive been recieveing. Im loveing that i can exspand my library! Great books so far 😊 $10 a month is so totally worth it!! Im sure im goint to jeep this going!
I like that i acctually found books i cant seem to put down! Its awsome! I may need to get the alrger print tho.
I got it for my Grandma after her surgery as she couldn't get out of the house to get books. She loved it we kept the subscription after she recovered. They even decreased the price with no change to quality! I was so shocked.
This is a great box for people looking to expand their reading collections and exposer to different genres. The tea is lovely and the bookmarks are adorable. I am a huge collector of bookmarks and would love just boxes packed with bookmarks and tea!
Great costumer service and very willing to work with you. I hope only for the best of this subscription manager.
Such a great way to send virtually new books to people wanting to try something different. The fantasy book was one I had on my list to read. I wouch choose 2 hardbacks over 3 paperbacks or trade fiction sizes, but that’s because I collect books.
Yesterday i received my first box from LDC. I love it. I've never even see the books before even though i follow one of the authors. Though the type (hardcover or paperback) dont particularly matter to me...i received one of each and both were in great condition. I can't wait to start on them and im excited to see whats in next month's.
Thank you for my shipment. I like the paper backs I received. A hard cover would be nice but I do not mind because the books I received I have not read before but know the authors well.
Thank you so much for your honest review. We’re thrilled you enjoyed the books you received and will be sure to send you a hard cover next month!
I absolutely loved this little crate! Received 2 (gently used) books that were in great shape and appeared to be exactly the genres I read. Both were hardcovers and packed very well. I love the idea that it's a way to cycle through used books and give them new homes. Great crate with a great price, totally worth it!
Thank you so much for the honest review! We appreciate your business and are pleased you enjoyed your Crate! We will continue to send quality books your way!
By far the best book subscription I’ve received yet. Much more personalized than others that I have tried! Thank you!!
Thank you for the great review, however, is there a reason you gave us a 1 star rating? We’d like to improve your experience!
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
This is such a great option for book lovers that need a cheaper option! I got the deluxe crate which has three books, 2 teas, and a little bookmark! I don't drink different flavored tea too much but the great part is that there's an option for just books! the books were in really good condition given that they were "gently used" and I'd love to order again sometime :)
Thank you so much for your honest review! We're glad you enjoyed the crate and wish you happy reading!
