It is a good subscription. The book was in good condition, came at a timely manner... I just... Didn't like the book... I chose general fiction as my topic as you can't select more than one. I like sci-fi, fantasy, and the sort... I got a... Rather bland fiction... Yet, that is due to the limitations, not the maker. Just know... Be specific

Used Books Monthly said...Apr 17, 2022

Thanks, Leilani. We truly do want to send you books you'll enjoy, they just don't always hit the mark, ya know? Please feel free to contact Used Books Monthly support to fine-tune your preferences and make your subscription enjoyable! -Trista
