I had been thinking about subscribing to Book of the Month for a while. The pricing wasn’t bad, but with how tight our budget is with the upcoming wedding, I didn’t want to risk it.
Besides, I very rarely buy new books. I mostly check them out from the library or snag them from used book stores, only purchasing books that I know I will reread time and time again. Or at least that’s what I try to do. Ha! Of course I will snag a brand new book that I just couldn’t wait to get from the library on occasion.
But then on my birthday, my wonderful fiancé gifted me a six-month subscription!
My First Book Of The Month Box
I was ecstatic! I kept running over and hugging Alex on the day he gifted this to me, constantly interrupting his video game session with the boys.
After that excitement wore off a bit, the countdown to receiving the box was on…
Coming home from work on a rather rough day all around, a Friday the 13th of course, I was thrilled to see the box in our mailbox!
One of my favorite things about this experience so far is how the books are branded. I LOVE the BOTM logo to begin with, so of course I loved discovering that it is set into the cover of the book under the dust cover along with the month the book was part of the program.
I also really enjoy that the BOTM imprint is on the spine and the cover, in a color that matches another element that was already on the cover. Staying in the color scheme makes it all flow so well together.
I cannot wait for my second box!
Thanks for reading!
