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.

great expectations

I am really enjoying the variety of this subscription month after month. I selected quite a few different genres specifically to expand upon what I normally read. This subscription really delivers! My only complaint is that in a few instances, I've received a book I already own (no fault of the curator) and a book that was a later part in a series I did not already own or had not already read. Being the book nerd I am, I have no problem with reading up on a series via the library or other sources, but this might post a problem for those who are less enthusiastic. Overall, not much to complain about and a whole heck of a lot to enjoy!

A great used books subscription for people who want to shake up their reading recommendations. I loved getting unexpected books based on the preferences I set. If my spouse didn’t work at a used book store, I would have kept going with my subscription. 10/10 lots of fun!

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

Used Books Monthly answered...October 2021

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: 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

Used Books Monthly answered...November 2021

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.
