This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Book of the Month has added a few more updates to their subscription program!

  1. They will only ship boxes when you login and select your choice (no auto-shipments)
  2. You can Ship It Now for any order, instead of waiting for the book selection window to close.

If you haven’t signed up for a Book of the Month subscription, yet:

Use coupon code BOTM5 to get your first month for only $5 

Or use coupon code OCT50 to save 50% off a 3-month subscription (that works out to $7.50 a book!)

  1. I love the changes!

  2. Can you purchase subscriptions for other people as a gift?

    • You can! Once you go to the BOTM site, scroll to the bottom of the page and you’ll see “Give a Gift” as an option in the footer of the page. 🙂

      • I don’t think that we are able to use the 50% off coupon for the gifts though 🙁

  3. These changes are awesome. Love BOTM!

    I’m OCD about sub dates, so I always log in, but it’s nice to think that if there is ever an emergency or something similar, I wouldn’t be stuck with a book I didn’t want.

  4. I think this is a great feature! I won’t ever need the skip option since I usually always add books to my box!! Can not ever get enough to read 🙂 Wondering if anyone else has book boxes they recommend. I get Bookcase Club (Thrill seeker and strange world), Powell’s Indiespensible, Muse Monthly and BOTM. I wish I could afford Cozy Reader but it is just a bit out of my self imposed budget.

    • BooklyBox is a really great sub that gives you a book in your choice of genres, some tea packets, two useful items, and a really great drawstring bookbag (if you’ve seen Uppercase, its like that kind of bag, but BETTER and actually usable). Plus they donate a book to areas in need. This month is Liberia. 🙂

      • Thank you! I will check it out.

        • You’re welcome!! 🙂

    • I get Powell’s Indiespensable and Muse Monthly too, plus I did splurge on Cozy Reader (while it is expensive, I always look forward to it so much because it seems so thoughtfully curated). Thanks to another reader on this site who recommended it, I also subscribe to Parnassus First Editions, which sends you a signed first edition each month for the retail price of the book plus shipping. Of the book subscriptions I have, Parnassus is the one that most closely matches my taste, followed closely by Powell’s.
