I've received two boxes, and while I haven't been wowed by the books I've received I'm going to try it out for one more shipment. I love that the books are signed, that the books are impressively "literary," and that there are little extras, but I haven't found the book subscription that really works for me yet. It's not a value box, either. But then the curation doesn't work for me. A bit bland and safe, tbh (the books I received so far are City of Fire, Did You Ever Have a Family, and... oh no, the next shipment is Mr. Slipfoot). Yeah, the writing style for the books they choose is like, Writers Workshop. Which can work for you! But I hate it.
