Enjoy fabulous hidden-gem reads from a women-led independent bookstore at the beach!

Product Details

Bringing an independent bookstore to you!

We select our most favorite new titles across multiple genres & send readers one surprise book each month! We know that sadly not everyone has an independent bookstore near them so we are bringing the independent bookstore experience to you. Books come hand-wrapped each month & typically include a letter from the author.
  • +OUR FAVORITE READS: The Book Drop focuses on our most favorite reads every month. Imagine you walk into an independent bookstore and find the most amazing book that you'd never find anywhere else! Or perhaps a wonderful independent bookseller recommends the most perfect book to you... that is the Book Drop vibe in a nutshell. We select exceptionally amazing books that are we super passionate about & feel should be at the top of everyone's To-Read list, books that you'll definitely NOT want to miss out on. We know you can purchase bestsellers and Top 10 books from those big box stores & websites so we don't send anything you'll easily find unless you're in an independent bookstore.
  • +INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE VIBE: We bring the independent bookstore vibe to readers via The Book Drop. Our mailings are curated by real independent booksellers, hand-wrapped in tissue every month, and lovingly packed from our little shop in Fenwick Island, Delaware. All gift notes come hand-written for that super cozy vibe.
  • +SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS: The Book Drop is powered and run by Bethany Beach Books, a woman-owned and women-led bookstore. The Book Drop headquarters and shop opened in November 2020 so we are now able to be physically part of two communities.
  • +ENVIRONMENTALLY-CONSCIOUS: The Book Drop does their best to be as environmentally-conscious as possible. At the start of 2019, we switched from boxes to recycled padded envelopes to cut back on waste. We also use materials that are made from recycled paper products. We live at the beach so we try to do our best for the planet whenever possible!
  • +GIFT SUBSCRIPTIONS: The Book Drop makes for a fabulous gift! Whether you're shopping for the holidays, a graduation or celebration, a baby shower, etc. The Book Drop is a great idea! Our books come hand-wrapped in tissue paper every month, making our subscription feel very gifty already. We also provide a hand-written gift note to the recipient in their first package. Gift Givers can select subscriptions for an assortment of ages and for an assortment of lengths.

Q: Can I get a young adult box that is for a young man, not a girl? My son was in another subscription box, and he kept getting romance novels.Asked by Jeannebartells, April 2020

The Book Drop answered...June 2020

In an effort to promote gender fluidity among books, we consider all of our book subscriptions to be gender neutral.

Q: Can I switch between blends? For example, from Bubbly & Tea to Elixir & Tea every 3 months or so?Asked by Marria N., March 2022

The Book Drop answered...March 2022

Hi Marria,
Thank you for reaching out! Yes, you can switch between genres or blends at any time. Those changes can be made either in your account settings or by messaging our support email.

Q: What will be the best option to choose for my 13yo son? The middle grade option or the Young Adult?Asked by Veronica G., May 2019

The Book Drop answered...June 2020

We always leave this up to the parent's discretion. Our Middle Grade subscription is best for readers who read at a Lexile range of 650-890. Our Young Adult subscription is recommended for readers with a maturity level of 13+. Some of our Young Adult books may contain mature content, please take a peek at our Past Books page on our website to see what we have sent in previous mailings.

I’d look at the books he’s recently read to get an idea of which level he’s at since all teenagers are different. If you can’t get that information, I would suggest that you start with middle grade books and if he feels that they’re too easy or that the themes are too childish, you can switch to young adult.

I am really enjoying my Bookdrop subscription. I was a little nervous because the books are always a surprise. However, that anxiety has eased 100% as I have enjoyed each of the books I have received. They have been books that I would not have found without this subscription. The ease in changing subscriptions is great. I started with a single type of book then changed to a combo box. I found that in these stressful times, receiving a comfort read and a read in one of my favorite genres is the right mix.

Great books

Great subscription service! I wanted to get back into reading, but I always have a hard time selecting books myself. So, I love that this subscription does it for me based on my taste!

An absolute gem!

My first month was a total success, and I can’t aIt to get more books! I was worried because I subscribe to so many book related places, but I received β€œOn A Quiet Street” by Seraphina Nova Glass, which wasn’t even on my radar and was EXCELLENT! I can’t wait for more book mail. Plus, supporting an independent bookstore is a perk.

Run, don’t walk to sign-up!

I highly recommend The Book Drop subscription! Not only is it so fun to receive a β€œmystery book” each month but you are also supporting an independent bookstore in the process! Their books have all been great reads so far and I can’t wait for my next book mailing!

This came as a gift and was packaged nicely with a gift card. I’m enjoying the book, β€œswimming Back to Trout River” and learning quite a lot about conditions in China under Chairman Mao and after. The story & characters play out with that cultural background.
I tried to upload some pics. Not sure if it happened.
