  1. I can’t decide if my mom would prefer Mystery/Crime or Thriller/Suspense… and I can’t decide if I would prefer Urban Fantasy or Young Adult! 🙂

    • I purchased my mother previous boxes that were mystery/crime and thriller/suspense and she greatly preferred the thriller/suspense box. Of course these boxes are going to include different books and maybe this time the mystery/crime box ends up being better.

  2. I don’t see this as good value at all. Remaindered books at my local Barnes & Noble generally retail for $5.99 or less so at this price point it’s basically the same as going to a store.

    • True. It’s also the same (if not cheaper if you have Prime – free shipping options) if you buy used on Amazon.

      On the other hand, I’m getting my mom one because of convenience and the lack of the pressure from choosing what to surprise her with (she has a Kindle so she already has access to millions of books at her fingertips – talk about a daunting task lol).

  3. Oh! I have taken their grab bags a couple of times and they are a true book box in my opinion. As a book lover, I am more interested in getting books then book related items (again my personal opinion :)). They seen to do exactly that. I am glad they are back after a hiatus.

  4. Oooo fun!
