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.

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

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

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

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.
