Are Book Subscription Boxes Worth It?
We’ve received questions in the past asking if subscription boxes are worth it, particularly a book subscription box. We are here to tell you that YES - they are absolutely worth it. Take a look at our top reasons to sign up for a monthly book subscription box today.
You always get new reading material
Each month, all adults who are subscribed to our boxes, regardless of genre, will receive two books to read and keep. That’s right, you can increase your personal library by 24 books in just one year!
Kids will receive three books each month in their gender and age group and their selections can change as your child ages or their reading comprehension increases. When children have an at-home library of books that are specifically theirs, it’s been proven that they achieve three additional years of schooling over children who do not have their own books. With three books each month, your child can create a personal library of 36 books in just one year. Think about how this number will increase as your child continues to read and learn!
It’s also been proven that children can learn up to 12,000 new words every single year simply by reading. Who wouldn’t want to encourage their children to learn and grow every day?
More motivation to read
Let’s face it: heading to the bookstore or library isn’t the most convenient errand to run, and it’s easy to make excuses to avoid doing so. When you receive two books at your front door each month, there are no excuses. The new novels are waiting for you! All you have to do is pick them up and get started.
Expand your horizons
When you use a book subscription box service, such as BookCase.Club, you are able to choose from different genres. You can stick with what you know you like, or you can branch out to a genre you wouldn’t normally choose at the store. You can switch your genre as often as you’d like in order to ensure you always have new books and worlds to dive into. You may find a new favorite author or genre that you wouldn’t normally pick up, and that can open the door to so many possibilities.
Connect with new people
Reading similar (or the same) books has a way of connecting people. You can discuss your thoughts on the books, what you liked about them, what really grabbed your attention, and so much more. We offer an online BookClub where members can chat about just that. Connecting with new people can really make you think, increase your empathy, and even help you find your new favorite authors or titles. You never know, you could make a forever friend from a simple Facebook community!
These are just a few of the top reasons we suggest everyone joins a book subscription service - you get new material, you don’t have to go to the store, you open your horizons, and you could even make new friends through the process.
During the month of December, we’re offering a few discounts to new members - if you’re interested in signing up for a one-month membership, use code HOLLYJOLLY21 for 20% off at checkout; if you want to sign up for a 3, 6, or 12-month membership, use code SAVEMORE21 for 25% off at checkout.
