Q: Can you get Kurig type cups and audio books instead of ground coffee and hard books?Asked by Marilyn H., September 2019
Hi Marilyn, we don't do the K-cups or audio books. Full disclosure: it would probably be more cost-effective to sign up for an audio book club and buy good coffee online as much as it pains me to say that. There are some really great audio options out there. Have a great day!
Q: If you send a book that I already have and read, am I able to return and replace it with another selection?Asked by Linda C., September 2019
Q: How recent are the books? Are they new releases?Asked by Desiree C., August 2019
Thank you for asking that is a great question. All of our books are new and they are all hard covers but they aren't new releases. We have a number of publishers that send us their inventory every week and we pick the best of the best. Please let us know if we can do anything to be of service to you.
Q: Are there other plans besides month to month? I am a slow reader and I would have way too many books just lying around Asked by Michelle C., July 2019
You can just cancel and resub at any time. That way you can just get them as needed!
Great coffee and books! I chose the “surprise me” option and I got two great mysteries. I can’t wait to read them.
Great box! Packaging could be cuter but the coffee was amazing and the books were decent for the fiction genre. Definitely going to switch up the genre for my next order.
So I was really excited for this box, but it took a year and a day to ship. I didn't get a shipping notification, either and then when the box did show up it was literally leaking coffee grounds. The books are intact but the coffee is a loss. The book jackets didn't grab me but I'll give them a try anyway.
I received my first shipment and I did not enjoy the books and the coffee was average. I have tried to cancel and Dan Schaefer the Co-founder said he would handle once he got to his computer? It has been days and no further communication from Dan. Now what? I wanted to like this, now I would just like to cancel.
I was excited to try this box as I really need a new hobby and I hate looking around for books at a book store. I saw there was an option for horror books and figured that it would be perfect (those are the only type of books that seem to interest me.) When my box arrived (took 2 weeks but I was in no rush) I was it said My Thrill Club on it which made me very excited, when I opened the box I saw Bad Priest coffee which was very cool! But the books I got were not horror related at all but both like science fiction. "Loosed Upon The World" and "Three Years With The Rat" books that really don't interest me at all. Though, I do have my Mom that would be happy to read these and when I went to cancel my subscription I got an email back saying they were sorry about how long shipping took and gave me a full refund which was very nice. I dont think this is a bad box by any means and for someone who is more adventurous when it comes to books would really like this. For me, the books weren't in the genre that I would read. Great quality books though and good coffee!
I stumbled across this subbie box looking for a unique gift for my coffee and book loving fiancé. I didn’t really know what to expect but what he received far exceeded any expectations I could have had. He received two very popular books that had been on his wish list for a long time and a great brew that we enjoyed for several mornings in our French press. There was a custom note printed on super cute coordinating stationary that was a pleasantly surprising touch, too. This is a great subbie box that we look forward to getting again very soon! It’s a nice treat!
Sent this to my mom and she is loving it, totally “wowed”, thank you!
