Let’s talk about Book Subscription Boxes!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

I hope you’re enjoying the last weekend of 2019 with your beloved family and friends, if not, I hope you’re at least cozying up with a cup of hot chocolate (with tiny marshmallows, YUM), a warm blanket, and a good book! As 2019 is edging closer to an end, I’d love to share some interesting knowledge about something I’ve always wanted/wished/been eyeing for and my job kinda made it possible earlier this year–you guess it–book subscription boxes!

If you’re a booklover or an avid reader like me, then I’m sure the concept of book subsciption boxes isn’t unfamiliar to you. I tried my very first box with Fairyloot back in February this year, and I was so grateful for all the chances to get more in the following months. The overall unboxing experience was quite unforgettable and I’ve got some of my all-time favorite items in these boxes as well.

Therefore, I decided to share the little knowledge I have about book boxes and what they are, how the whole bookish subscription business model works, down to the last details about experiencing the bookish unboxings in this post. I hope you’ll find my post as informative as I aim to let it be and hopefully, you’ll discover some new book box companies throughout the way! Enjoy & happy unboxing! 🙂

Happy Sunday, guys!

How’s your weekend so far? I hope you’re having a great time; if not, here’s a little something to cheer you up! As you know, booklovers like you and me love not only the books themselves but also their relevant merchandise such as book swags (including bookmarks, book pins, characters-inspired posters/art works/coasters/keychains, signed book plates), bookish jewelry/accessories, candles with unique bookish scents, clothing, tote bags, and the list goes on and on and on.

Hence, when I discovered this newly established online shop called Literary Book Gifts, I couldn’t wait any longer to share the awesomeness of the website with you. I really have to say that Literary Book Gifts is pretty much made specially for us booklovers and I’m lucky enough to be offered a discount code for all of you. 😉

What’s going on in the book community?

Recently, people in the bookish community have been raving about the rules for requesting ARCs (advanced reader’s copies) on NetGalley and entering giveaways on Goodreads because bigger publishers in the former platform start giving access to U.S. reviewers/bloggers mostly (or other English speaking countries like the U.K., Canada and Australia) and the latter is going to limit their entrants to U.S. residents only.

What about the international readers/people?

Hence, as an international reader myself, I decided to share my opinion on this issue here and hopefully I’ll get to hear yours, too.
