This was my first box. It shipped very fast and was packaged well. The only thing is i dont care for the books. There is a child's book from school that has notes written in it and has dumb book written on the sides. Ehh..
I received taming of the shrew, sophocles antigone(interesting), and a Heather Graham novel. I dont hate the books I will read them, just not wowed.
I’m looking forward to reading these books! I’m going to narrow my book settings since one of the books I’m on the fence about, but the books were in near perfect condition.
My order shipped super fast. I was expecting it to take some time due to COVID but my first box got here within two weeks of me starting my subscription. I chose the 4 book box and all the titles seem to fit my preferred genres. I got 3 paperback and 1 hardcover. The quality is fantastic, they all look new. The titles are a bit obscure but I ordered with the intent to try new things. Overall great subscription.
This subscription box is such fun. I picked the genre I like and I get two books each month in that genre, but which I wouldn’t pick out and buy on my own. That’s what’s fun about it in addition to the surprise of what shows up. I’m now reading books I probably wouldn’t have read. They’re in better than expected quality and the curation exposes me to new-to-me authors and stories at a price that puts the risk of not liking a book at an “I don’t mind” cost. Thus far, I haven’t disliked anything I’ve received.
I haven't read the book I received yet, but it arrived in good condition, and seems to fit the genre I requested. It's also a book I've never heard of before, which excites me! I'm an avid reader and often get overwhelmed by all the choices when I am deciding on my next read.Can't wait for next month's book already!
I was a little skeptical that they would be able to send me books that I would like. I received my first box (very quickly!)and 3 out of the 4 books they sent were of interest to me. I thought that was pretty good considering they only had a short list of topics that I like. The books are second hand, but they were in good shape. This is a great subscription box - especially now while the local library is closed!
Got exactly what I asked for and it was delivered very fast. Thank you :)
This is my first purchase through CrateJoy. I chose Used Books Monthly because of the value and assortment of genres to choose from. I received my box about 2 weeks after purchasing. I got a good selection from the genres I picked. The books are in good used condition. I've been looking for affordable reads and this fits the bill. I'm excited for my next box!
These books were in almost new shape. Both were hardback.
I liked 3/4 of the books provided. There was a good variety of items and topics. This is a fun subscription!
The books were okay... honestly it was my fault for choosing the genres that I did - I got what I asked for lol they are not mind-readers. I really hate horses and I got 2 horse books. I should have specified no horses please. The books were in good condition, though, and it came relatively quickly. Cheap way to get new reads.
