I Tried Three Subscription Book Services And They Were Actually Awesome
Could a monthly book box cure my reading indecisiveness?
Hi, I'm Farrah, and I'm a very indecisive reader. Actually — let's be real – I'm straight-up picky AF. (I JUDGE BOOKS BY THEIR COVERS!! I STOP READING IF THE FIRST PAGE ISN'T GOOD!! AND I DOG-EAR PAGES BECAUSE I'M A MONSTER!!)
When I discovered that — like beauty boxes — BOOK subscription boxes existed, I was curious. If I was able to tell someone my taste, would they be able to send me an accurate box that piqued my reading interests from beginning to end?
Booksstache allows you to choose a "big stache" (2-3 books) or "little stache" (1 book). Their motto is that each box is arranged around a certain theme that is supposed to give you a "unique reading experience."
PRICE: Starts at $30.
*Bonus: According to its website, “Booksstache donates a portion of our profits each month to Room to Read, a non-profit dedicated to promoting childhood literacy.”
These book subscription trials were provided to BuzzFeed free of charge.
