I like the Thrifty Books box because it’s pretty darn affordable and it’s introduced me to some great books. I pre-paid for a year and it came out to just over $17 per box including shipping, which is on the lower end compared to other book boxes. You can read reviews of past Thrifty Books boxes here.
The box consists of a literary fiction book, a bag of coffee (or I believe you can choose tea as well), and a newsletter. There’s also access to an online book club for subscriber’s eyes only. Exciting stuff.
I should mention that I’ve received August’s box and the news that it will be the last from this subscription.
I received The Tales of Beedle the Bard quite awhile ago and then I dramatically lost it. Tonight, while I was hiding cookies in my dresser so that my fiancee wouldn’t know I’d bought them, I found the book – rejoice!
Unfortunately, I may as well have just left it lost. I read about 50 pages and was just a’snoozin’ away. I’m sure this is due in part to the fact that I’m not a Harry Potter fan. I also don’t really like fables / myths / fairy tales and that’s basically what this was. So, not a big shocker! I’m not going to rate this and just assume that people who love Harry Potter likely enjoy this and those of us who aren’t super fans should probably skip it.
