Got this as a giftfor my mother who is a voracious reader and she is always pleasantly surprised at getting new authors to read.
Thanks for the kind words! We're happy your mom is happy. -Trista
I love the books you pick for me!!! They are all in great condition too. I can't wait to read them!!
Brenda, these words mean so much to us! Thank you for taking the time to let us know you're happy with your books. -UsedBooksMonthly Team
Very happy so far !!!!
Books look absolutely new. No bends and even the spines are unbroken.
Choices were awesome. Will purchase again.
Definitely never heard of either book I received. I'm not sure I'll read one of the two but my husband is interested in it so it pans out.
Those books seem to be in really good condition for used. They did fit my genra choices. I'll keep trying the box.
Really enjoying this subscription box! I love getting a surprise book every month and the books are always well picked for me.
Both months have been great so far! Great mix, all have been wins!
I'm only 52 pages into my first book, Running the Rift, by Naomi Benaron, but I'm totally loving it thus far! A friend gifted me a general fiction-gently-used-book-a- month for Christmas and I'm so grateful. I've been in a "non-fiction only" rut for years and I'm also passionate about re-using/recycling, so this particular gift idea is perfect for me. Looking forward to next month's selection.
..love the title and author book. Sounds great can't wait!
I love this

Q: Hello, emailed twice and asked on FB, but no answer. I signed up mid-May and read that the first shipment is sent by the 5th of each month, but when I check the status it still says curating. Help?Asked by Noelle K., June 2020
Please contact support and they will be happy to resolve any issues. We have updated our systems and staffing over time and have been up to date on shipments.
Because of what's going on right now it may take a little longer
Q: You debited my account for the month of July and I have not received a box. I emailed you twice now and no response. How do you plan to fix this?Asked by Monique B., July 2019
Hello! Renewal shipments are charged on the 15th and sent by the 5th. We take time and care to curate and ship. Hope this helps!
Q: Is there a way to ship gently used books to you? Or send the ones we get back when we finish reading them?Asked by Stephanie Y., January 2020
Hello! Unfortunately, it is not cost effective to ship them back and fourth. We usually recommend gifting them to someone you know or donating them locally.
You can email joe @used books and ask him.
