How The Book Drop works

A "Book of The Month" subscription from an independent bookstore!

When you sign up for The Book Drop, you'll automatically receive one fantastic, hand-wrapped paperback book delivered to your door each month. We find incredible reads that the average reader won't discover otherwise.

Simply decide which subscription is right for you, choose your subscription length, and enjoy some fabulous books!

The Book Drop selects the titles each month for you so you have nothing to worry about except enjoying your book! Each month the book is a surprise!

Support an Independent Bookstore


Yay for 28 years!

The Book Drop is curated and powered by Bethany Beach Books, an independent bookstore since 1991! We are located steps from the beach in Bethany Beach, Delaware and are the town's only independent bookstore. We understand not everyone has an independent bookstore in their town so we are bringing the independent to you! We host over 100 events every summer, including many author signings! For more information on our store and to check our event schedule, head here. 

Hidden Gem Reads


A team of book lovers is better than any algorithm

We understand that unless you are in an independent bookstore all the time or immersed in the book industry, it can be intimidating picking out a fantastic book.  We also know you can find and purchase books from That-Site-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. We are real life humans, though, who read for a living... and recommend books for a living. With the help of our booksellers, publisher reps, book club members, and our curator, a lot of book experience is being put into your books!

We Love the Planet


We work hard to make sure our packages are as environmentally-friendly as possible

We hate receiving something in the mail when the box is too big and stuffed with a ridiculous amount of packaging material. To ensure our packages are as environmentally-friendly as possible we ship our books in reusable padded envelopes made from recycled materials. Instead of using crinkle paper fluff we hand-wrap every book is reusable tissue paper, this not only allows you to use reuse our packaging but we think it's super cute.
