Q: How often does a crate come with an audio book? I am hearing impaired and wouldn't be able to use an audio book. I'd love to get this crate but I cant afford to buy things I can't useAsked by Books C., April 2020

Excellent question! In the past, we did include audiobooks in a couple of the Deluxe box editions. However, we have stopped. When you subscribe, just send us an email asking us to never include an audiobook. We'll make sure you'll get something of equal or better value to take its place.

Q: I'm thinking of using this subscription box to start a virtual book club. Are the books you send out, the same book for all the people each month, so we could all be reading the same book? Asked by Louis F., June 2020

Universe Bound answered...June 2020

Greetings Louis,

What an outstanding question. The answer is yes. Currently, we have three types of monthly book boxes: Universe Bound Monthly Book Box, The Deluxe Monthly Book Box, and the Simple Read and Relax Book Box.

The Simple Read and Relax Book Box is our single title subscription service. The book genre, generally, will be contemporary, mystery, and/or thriller.

The Monthly and Deluxe Book Boxes are multiple book subscription services. The genres are the same as the Simple Read and Relax service, but with a heavier lean toward Science Fiction and Fantasy. The difference between the regular Monthly and Deluxe boxes is that the Deluxe box contains an additional book.

We love virtual book clubs! If you like, we can tailor one of our book boxes...

Q: Is it possible to have scented items (bath bombs, etc) left out of box? Asked by Jana C., February 2020

Greetings Jana,

Absolutely we can leave scented items out, however, we would feel obliged to add more of some of the other items.

For our version of a bath bomb (Reactive Asteroid Dust (TM), we use not just Epsom salt, but dead sea salt, and Himalayan salt. So, making an unscented version would be a wonderful and easy option. The same goes for soap. We're pretty flexible. We can always work something out.

Q: Does candy and other items change? Allergic to coffee to give that stuff away.Asked by Julie M., December 2019

There's always a set of candies included: Coffee, Guava, and Ginger chews. Then there are the extras. Cookies, and lollipops, and chocolate have been included.

The Deluxe Box and Pleasures Box have coffee and teas. Send an email to the staff to request only tea or only coffee and they'll update the system. :-D

I'm usually very sceptical of these boxes but I truly love this subscription! The items and books are very well done. I'm enjoying the fact I asked for no coffee and was listened to. Well done cant wait until the next one comes.

This box blew me away!!!! I got the smallest one “simple read and relax” and it was JAMMED packed with product. And things I’ve never seen before. Very unique. The book was very current to social issues as well. I loved it and highly recommend. Unboxed in you tube channel “Arkansas Gals”

Awesome!!

Universe Bound was very timely in getting me my first box and when it arrived, they had shipped it in a manner to make sure it did not get damaged. I had my first cup of the tea yesterday, and the flavors were completely unique! Would definitely recommend this box to anyone looking to add uniqueness to their collection, be it the books, tea, or candle! (the candy is just a delicious bonus that reminds me of my childhood <3 )

I wish there was some way to choose between coffee, tea or both. I'm allergic to coffee and notice that spoilers often have the same candy, soap so far. Does it change?

Universe Bound said...Dec 31, 2019

Greetings Julie! Thanks for the feedback. Okay, for you we will include only tea - you'll get two flavors. Staff and I were talking about re-introducing some older soap products. In fact, even though the January Box spoiler pic shows African soap it'll include our handmade "Nebula" soap. We finished making a batch of our exclusive fragrance Jovian Rose (Sweet Pea, Bergamot, Geranium, and Damascus Rose). We are also working on introducing Diffusers.

For the candy - there is a core set that'll always be included, but we do change up with adding something different.

Enjoyable Book Box. :)

This box is an amazing gift to give someone, not only can they relax and read but they can soak in the tube in the nice smelling bathbomb or the bath powder. You can also light a pretty smelling candle to go with it. The books can be anything and what I like about this company is they use other authors that are trying to get their name out there. Never fail you also get tea, coffee treats who can not enjoy all those goodies. Come see for yourselves :)

Luv it
