Monthly Subscription Boxes
What Are They?
While COVID-19 kept us apart we came up with an idea to do Monthly Subscriptions so that we could continue to be in conversation with our bookish community and continue to handsell new books we were most excited about. You can get one book per month sent to you via the USPS. At this time, shipping is the only option. We may include small promotional gifts sent along from the publisher or advanced reading copies of books if it fits with the book we are sending you -- these are extra gifts and not guaranteed.
How Do They Work?
You purchase the subscription up front and then every month after you recieve one book in that genre hand-picked for you by our Room booksellers! Each handpicked title sent to a subscriber will have been published within the last three months so we can avoid sending you something you already have! If you do recieve a book(s) that you already own and you do not want the title shipped to you, we ask that you donate the book we sent to your local library, to a Little Free Library, or to a friend! There will be no exchanges or returns on any books received through the subscription process
Well, how do you know what kind of book I'd like?
Good question! After you purchase the subscription(s) you'd like, fill out this Google form. We read through every response and check it when we pick a book for you each month.
What if I want a different kind of subscription that isn't listed here?
E-mail us at RoomSubscriptionBox@gmail.com with what you're looking for and we will let you know if it's something we can do and what the pricepoint would be!
These COVID times are tough as a small business, as people, and as book lovers. It's hard not to engage with you all about books you love, about books we love, about books we are excited about. It's hard to not be able to see your excitement as you haul a stack of books you've spent the last hour and a half selecting to the register. We hope this new subscription service will allow our bookish community to invest in A Room of One's Own, in our deep knowledge and love of books, and allow us to get to know you better and send you, or a loved one, a little joy each month.
