Q: Does the subscription that isn't monthly come with just a book or the other things the monthly subscriptions come with? Asked by Shelby S., November 2020
Hi Shelby, the one off box is the same exactly as the subscription box. Two books, and lots of goodies!
Q: I was going to purchase a subscription when I saw that there was 30 euro shipping within Europe?? The box costs less! Is this flat for all countries?Asked by Georgia K., August 2020
Hi! There's a shipping rate set up for several countries. If your country is not included, please let me know. The 30 euro flat rate was an error. Apologies.
Q: I was about to purchase my box and realized shipping is 30€ per box to Europe. Surely there must be a cheaper option?Asked by Susanna C., July 2020
Hi, I've set up the shipping costs for Italy now. It's €15.30 to your beautiful country.
Hi, I've added the shipping price for Italy now. It's €15.30 for our box to ship to your beautiful country.
Thanks so much,
Tina for Portable Magic Books
Italy. Thank you for you quick reply!
Q: The box looks fantastic. What is the approximate cost to ship to the US? Asked by Nancy D., June 2020
Hi! Thanks for your interest. We charge €22.50 for each parcel to the US.
Hope you join the Portable Magic gang!
I love this subscription box!
The curator seems to know exactly which books you need to read each month. Both books are always fantastic reads. The accessories are very creative and it’s abundantly clear that the whole thing is put together with care and a genuine passion for books.
This subscription is great value for money. A fantastic gift for oneself and/or another loved one.
Thank you so much! I'm delighted that you're happy with the books and extras! I'm in love with books and I love to share that x
It’s exciting to be surprised by the good reads. One being well wrapped, making it feel like a personal gift. I like to share or even gift the bag of candies, that are delicious. The teas and coffees pair well with reading and make me very happy in these depressing times!
I just got my first box today, and I am so happy! I can't wait to start reading the books, I've already devoured the delicious little treats 😉, and I will sit down tonight with one of the hot drinks and start reading! I emailed the curator for estimated time of arrival since I live in Canada, of course there are delays because of the pandemic, but worth the wait, so thank you Tina for your patience, and thank you for this lovely box!
I'm so happy! Thanks Amanda. I love when our customers are happy!
I know full five-stars reviews seem far-fetched but honestly, I just can't describe the childlike excitement I felt opening my first box. I received two books I'm SO excited to read (side note: I'm a graphic designer, and sadly i ALWAYS judge books by the cover. It seems this month I got two books with the most beautiful covers ever, I can't stop looking at them). I also got a bunch of candy, two awesome coffees, a tea, an illustration i can't wait to frame and two postcards. A whole lot of beautiful joy in a perfect package, it felt like receiving a love letter. It's tough to buy from another country, with shipping costs raising so much - but it's worth it. I cant' wait to subscribe for the rest of the year and make my personal library awesome and vibrant with colors!
Nothing makes us happier than a happy customer! Thanks so much for your wonderful review. It honestly means the world to us. We're still little and we love sending the book love worldwide xxxx
I contacted the seller a after my first box arrived. It was awful. I sent them pictures and then no response back. I awaited my next two boxes hoping that the first was a mistake. they were not any better. The description does not meet the product. I will admit that the "new" book that was sent did meet expectations and I look forward to finishing them. Aside from that nothing else met the description. the boxes arrived in the mail beaten and half opened. I am sorry that this didn't work out. I was truly looking forward to this book crate experience.
Hi Sharon, I'm so sorry that you had that experience. Everything left here in good order. I'm afraid that I didn't receive any correspondence from you with pictures, although my email hasn't been updating for some reason. Please do contact me again if you wish on tinaacallaghan(at)Gmail dot com instead.
I have just recv my first box and I love it. Love the books and all the goodies. Can’t wait to get started on them. The chocolate looks delicious. Reading a good book, eating delicious chocolate and drinking a lovely hot drink. What more could we ask for
Hi Susan! I'm thrilled that you like it! Thanks so much and happy reading! Xx
Absolutely love this box! Although I haven't heard of either of my books before I'm interested to read them 😁
Brilliant, thanks so much Rachel! I'm so glad to hear that x
I highly recommend portable magic books, I have not been disappointed at any stage. Quite the opposite - it always exceeds expectations! The Curator has a gift for selecting books that you want (need!) on your TBR shelf, and the chocolate goodies are divine. What more could you want!?
Great to hear! Thanks so much!
I completely loved this box! I got one of my highly anticipated new releases alongside a really interesting secondhand book. Plus lots of goodies that I enjoyed. Highly recommend Portable Magic Book Box and I'm very much looking forward to my next box!
So glad that you enjoyed it! June box is on the way!
I'm so excited about the June box! Lovely books and goodies x
Exciting new and older fiction. Horror box included Bunny by Mona Awad and The Devil's Detective by Simon K. Unsworth.
It's great to be running smoothly again after the lockdown. Here's our July Horror box, as photographed by a happy customer 😊
