The selections were perfect in fantasy genre! I'm familiar with the titles and didn't read them before! I got the first series for Sanderson so hoping in my next box the second book will be there as a continuation! Excited for what's to come next. Thank you!
So far, Used Books Monthly has been great! I’ve received my first box, which came very fast, and had a great selection. Three out of four of my books were brand new, which was a nice little surprise. The books I received fit my genre choices well, and I just finished reading on of them, which I liked a lot! This is a great service that id environmentally conscious and affordable. It’s also nice not knowing what you’re getting each month.
I was hoping for at least one author I'd heard of but that was not the case, with that being said, I have not had a chance to read them yet. However, they seem to be in the correct genre! They were in very good shape as well! I look forward to next month. I will wait to change my create selection, but I may end up going to a different selection after next month.
Great service run by great people who are kind and easy to work with. I love that used books are getting new life.
Thank you Jennifer! Your kind words mean so much :)
Hi, I have emailed you guys two or three times and haven't gotten responses, I sent one email about my book preferences and I sent one asking what date my box will be shipped.
Great choices and really quick service. Can't wait for next month's selections.
Thank you, Lynn! We hope to keep making you happy. -Trista
