Frequently Asked Questions
The Book Drop is a surprise monthly book subscription service created by Amanda Zirn Hudson, operational manager & frontlist book-buyer of Bethany Beach Books. We sadly understand that not everyone has a local, independent bookstore near them so our mission is to help bring the independent bookstore to readers. The Book Drop is owned & powered by Bethany Beach Books.
We ship subscriptions between the 16th-21st of each month. Readers will receive tracking via email as soon as we start preparing their mailing.
Our subscriptions ship the same time every month: between the 16th-21st. Subscribe before the 15th of the month & receive your first book that same month.
