Q: Hi, Would this be a good gift for my 17 year son to grow a library of classic reads or are these geared more toward women?Asked by Rebecca F., November 2019

Hi! Thanks for your interest! We feature great reads from a mixture of
genres with the option to skip a month if the genre or theme falls outside
of a subscriber's interest. While we can't guarantee that he would
appreciate every book we feature, we think he'd certainly enjoy many of
them. We'd love to introduce him to some fantastic reads!

I have loved receiving my Weekend Warrior pkg every month. The 2 books in each bag have allowed me to meet new authors I wouldn't have discovered on my own. That each delivery also came with coffee & tea samples was such a pleasureable plus. I will surely miss this indulgence when they discontinue it in Aug of this year. The company is opting to go strictly "box" at that time and do away with the 2 smaller and less expensive offerings which leaves me out in the cold. The "Warrior" was the perfec fit for me content-wise and price-wise. So sad . . .

I have received a Bookshelf delivery each month and have enjoyed every one, I love this new paperback book subscription. I look forward to my surprise book every month! What is it this month? First hint is an apple coconut soy candle named "INCONCEIVABLE" There is always a little snack, this time Mr Goodbar, and either coffee, tea or cocoa. Cute book mark. Ahhhh the book is "The Princess Bride". I loved that movie. Princess Buttercup and Westley! I am making a cup of cocoa and curling up on the couch to read. Ooooh I missed this little pin! It says never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
Princess Bride, Never-ending Story and Fahrenheit 451 are my favorites so far.
Thank you for putting together these amazing boxes.

I just received this subscription the first week of September and I really love it. I was introduced to a writer I had not heard of before and I loved her book. The other choice was better than the movie, aren't they always? And the third was snagged by my husband. He loves a good spy novel. The Banana Fosters coffee was sublime and I loved the metal bookmark-my first! and the stickers/magnets/pins. I am literally counting the days until the October shipment. Thanks BSA.

This is the box I look forward to the most each month ... I get the "Weekend Warrior" package with coffee and tea, and two books! The books are always in gorgeous like-new condition, and the coffee is to die for. It's also fun to try other kinds of tea, I love that!! So far all of the selections have been excellent reads with critical acclaim -- sometimes outside of my usual zone, but I'm broadening my horizons as a reader. Keep being amazing!!

The book was an interesting read and the tea was amazing. If you enjoy a good read and a nice cup, give it a try. (The price isn't bad either.)

Love this Subscrition Box! It has the CUTEST packaging! The adorable little thing was wrapped in faux newspapers and had the sweetest hot chocolate in a test tube I’ve ever seen. So cute! Haven’t read the book tho!
