HOW IT WORKS - see FAQs below for further details
You choose your option. Then, we will send you a form where you (or the gift recipient) can specify the type of book you want to receive: Fiction, nonfiction, past favorites, fascinations. The more specific the better!
Then, you sit back and relax while our curators go to work: Choosing the book, wrapping it, (including a note and small gift, like stickers), and sending it out via USPS. Repeat for a year.
Q: What happens after I sign up/How will you know what books I like and want you to send me?
A: After you sign up, we will send you a google form that includes the chance to specify what genre/style/period/authors you are interested in.
Q: Can I request specific titles?
A: You can request specific titles, but we cannot guarantee that we will send you them. We can guarantee that we will use your suggestion to help guide our choices in the books we will send you.
Q: What service do you use for shipping?
A: We only use USPS for shipping.
Q: What's the delivery schedule?
A: We send out books to all subscribers in one batch at the end of a month (otherwise the logistics would drive us over the wall), so that they arrive at the start of the next month. Thus, if you sign up in November, the books will begin arriving in early December.
Q: I got the subcription as a gift, will the recipient receive a notification?
A: That depends on your preference. When you sign up, we'll send you a form. If you are getting the subscription as a gift, there will be an option to say whether you want the recipient to receive a notification before receiving the books.
Q: Will I have a chance to update my preferences?
A: Yes! Everytime we send out the books, we include a note which states that the recipient can send a message via email with any suggestions, recommendations, or requests that they may have.
Q: What happens if I hate the book that I get?
A: We hope this won't happen! But if it does, then we will send you up to one other book per month.
Q: What about refunds?
A: If you decide that you want to cancel your subscription, we will honor that request, minus the amount of titles we've already sent. For example, if you originally get the 12 new hardcovers a year, and then decide you want to cancel after we have sent you 6 books, then we will refund you for 50% of the amount of the subscription.
