Q: I work at a Public Library. We have an incentive program for summer reading. Would it be possible to purchase several of your boxes to use as rewards? Asked by James M., May 2020
Hello! Absolutely. Please send me an e-mail if you have questions!
Q: Can you switch between ya and adult within a years subscription?Asked by Natasha D., May 2020
You sure can! You'd just have to log into your account to switch before renewal date (the 15th).
Q: I've looked on your website and have looked at the past boxes. Some of them are very interesting. Is there a way to order past boxes??Asked by Codex V., June 2020
You can if they are available! Right now, there are some YA Mystery boxes on the shop, which include items and books from past boxes. I've been selling out super quickly, though, so there's not often many past boxes available! New boxes go on sale on the first of the month.
Q: How much cheaper would it be to sent it to America Asked by Morgan S., February 2020
Exact shipping rates are calculated at checkout! It is about $18-$20 less to ship domestically.
Unplugged Book Box is a uniquely currated box run by Sarah & Melanie which not only focuses on bookish products, merch and hand-picked books suited to the month's theme, they also do a fantastic job in drawing attention to mental health. The box truly lives up to its name in helping one unplug from the buzz and stress of daily life. They also take special care in supporting local small businesses. These ladies strive to provide excellent customer service and always ensure to get their customers involved in the curation of the box through their interactive Instagram stories and polls. All in all, an excellent bookish box I'd highly recommend everyone to try out! 💜
This box is my absolute favorite that’s around! I love that they focus on the environment by working to better their packaging and use recycled products, etc., mental health, self care, and love of books! The fact that they have two options (Adult Fiction and YA) gives more of a range, and they have yet to disappoint with book choice for either! Their products are some of the highest quality, most unique, and USABLE I’ve received! I am a very happy Unplugger & will continue to support them and their mission/journey for as long as I can!
Savana, we are so happy to hear that you love having the option to choose between YA and Adult Fiction and are a fan of the book choices :)! Thank you for your kind words! You've truly made our day. So excited that you've found good use of the included products! -Melanie & Sarah
I have gotten two Unplugged boxes (with a third on the way!) and loved them both! I like that the items included are usually all very usable, rather than just for show, it means even when a fandom I am not in is represented I can still happily use the item. I also love the playlist cards, so unique and fun!
A book box full of self care, usable products that are inspired by fandoms from books and tv/movies!!! Love this box and their support of small businesses, which ensures exclusivity when purchasing this monthly subscription. 5 Stars!!!
I love this! I especially love how the card that explains all the items describes the books that inspired them. I’ve got some great ideas for next books to read!
I really love this box. I am currently waiting on my mailman to drop my second box off. I love the quality of the items. I love how different businesses are given the chance to create something bookish. The books are great quality as well. The price for this box is very fair.
I like the box and I think the bookish items are cute, but the only reason I decided to cancel this subscription was the fact that I didn't care for the books that were selected. This box is all over the place when it comes to picking a book. One month you could get a romance novel, the next month a women's fiction book, the next month could be a fantasy book. Unless you read all kinds of books, this isn't really a subscription that benefits me (book wise). I am giving away more books than I'm taking in and keeping on my shelves. This is why I ultimately canceled this box. Also I will add this box is tailored more for women book nerds, I don't see a lot of guys wanting to get this subscription
Thank you for your honest feedback. I do apologize that the books weren't to your taste. You're correct, Unplugged provides a variety of genres! One of the reasons Unplugged began was to offer all kinds of books - primarily those that don't have a ton of pre-publishing hype - to challenge and expose readers to a landscape of new books. Book choices also depends on what is releasing from publishing companies each month, which is why I always provide the genre and plot hints so you may skip a month if it's not to your taste. These are posted on my website, sent via e-mail, and posted on social media each month. Unplugged is a self-care book box, and I personally believe self-care is...
I love book subscription boxes so I was excited to try this one out but ended up being pretty meh about it. The book shipped quickly and I had no issues with receiving or cancelling my subscription. I was initially unsure on the book pick, as that month it was a contemporary book which I am not a huge fan of but I ended up liking it more than I thought I would. my issue was the other goodies in the book. I believe I got the february box which I think the theme was forbidden love, and the bookish goods they included was decidedly subpar. The items were cheap and random and, to me, didn't tie in together to promote the overall theme. As I said the book selection was good but everything else was a disappointment so for me this isn't a subscription I'll try again.
Obsessed with the curation of this box. Everything is usable. It's an "experience" in a box. Boxes have gotten better and better this year, and I have loved each one more than the last.
I loved both of the June boxes so much! Definitely going to continue subscribing.
The August Adult Fiction Box's theme was "Adventure." It featured an adventurous, travel rom-com book, a reusable stainless steel straw, a Game of Thrones inspired book sleeve, Dune inspired charcoal cleanser, Jurassic Park inspired bug repellent, an adorable Lord of the Rings mug, and the chance to add on a set of bookends for an added price.
