The Book Drop is a subscription program lovingly run by a little independent bookstore at the beach, Bethany Beach Books. Bethany Beach Books has been Bethany Beach, Delaware's independent bookstore for over 29 years. Established in 1991, Bethany Beach Books is just steps from the boardwalk and open daily, year round.
The Book Drop was created in 2015 by Bethany Beach Book's manager, Amanda Zirn Hudson. Amanda still curates every single subscription! The Book Drop strives to bring the independent bookstore experience to readers' doors all over the world via book each month.
The Book Drop started in the little back office at Bethany Beach Books but quickly outgrew this space. We now pack every subscription by hand at an offsite location. Each package is then loaded into the back of one of our booksellers' cars and hand delivered to our local post office. A lot of love, time, and effort goes into each subscription before it reaches its reader.
