I love books, independent bookstores, and getting mail, so this seemed like the perfect subscription for me! I signed up for 6 months of the "books for coffee" box and was disappointed with the books I received. They seemed like cast-offs: poorly rated and generally not very good reads. (One was even pretty racist and xenophobic.) The extras were a nice touch, but I haven't recommended the books I received to anyone else and won't be renewing my subscription.

I have the Young Adult book subscription since I am a teacher. The books chosen are quality books, even if they aren't in my taste. There is a variety of genres included, which makes it fun. I appreciate the switch to more environmental friendly packaging. I enjoy this subscription and love getting it every month!
I liked the idea of the box. It's really great. The price is good too!! 😊
I just personally didn't like this book this time. It's not a bad book just not my style. Which I understand it's bound to happen and it's in no way the box's fault. I will say tho... The box made a big mess when I opened it 😅 it's made of recycled materials so when u open it and it rips the cardboard then all these tiny gray and white flakes of (I think) paper spills out. It's not that big of a deal and easy to clean up tho 😊
I highly recommend this box 😊 it's great!! And just keep in mind it's a blind book box.
