Why did I pay $74.95 for a box of self-published books, half of which were free on KU? I hate Nerds candy so not even sure why that was included, same thing with the mouse pad and the tiny soy candle. It didn't add anything to my experience.I will definitely never get this box again.
We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your March box! While we do actually feature a mix of self-published and traditionally published titles (at least 2 trad books in this month's assortment), we do not ever know which books will be available in KU, as this can change in the amount of time our authors are contracted and books are received. One thing we can guarantee is that signed paperbacks are not available with a KU subscription. Again, we are sorry you did not enjoy your box or the swag items included, and we hope you find a book box that better suits you. Happy reading!
Absolutely not worth it. The cost of the 2 books was $22, the cost of the box is $25 so basically I paid extra for the "swag" which was a few mini tootsie rolls, a mini post it note pad, and a cheap plastic measuring spoon. One of the books is even free on kindle unlimited! Absolutely ridiculous. Cancelling immediately.
Hi Stephanie! We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your box. Did you happen to notice that your box had possibly been opened? We've never shipped a box with such limited contents, so we hope it wasn't rifled through during shipment and missing items! We wish we would have had the opportunity to fix that for you, had we been notified. Please also keep in mind that your books were paperbacks, signed by the authors, making them much more unique than a digital book available through KU. We understand that this isn't the right box for you, and wish you luck in finding one that suits your interests better. Happy reading!
I received the book with nothing others. I paid for that. I was disappoint not gets things come with book. Paula
Hi Paula, We are sad to hear you were disappointed. You did subscribe to the Individual Signed Book option, which doesn't include any frills. If you would like to receive the bookish swag and other goodies, you would have to upgrade to one of the four different boxes we offer. Only the boxes come with swag and other items. Have a wonderful day!
First box disappointing going to give it another try! I did not get a box I got a bag in the mail with one book in it. There was nothing else in the bag. Giving it one more month. Hope you do better!
We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your first shipment. You signed up for our single book subscription, which does not include swag or any of the other goodies the larger subscriptions come with, as shown on our website. If you are looking for a box with more items, please consider upgrading to a 2, 4, 6, or 8 book box. We’re sure you’ll love it!
I was sent the same book in two consecutive boxes.
I also had some issues with the sign-up that were my fault. When I reached out they initially tried to help, even passed me on to someone in charge, but I then never heard back.
I could get over the not getting back to me as my situation was complicated and unusual, but the sending the same book twice is not acceptable. They didn't even acknowledge that or apologise. Disappointing.
