How The Book Drop works

When you sign up for The Book Drop, you'll receive one fantastic, hand-wrapped paperback book delivered to your door each month. 

We find incredible reads that the average reader most likely won't discover unless they are immersed in the wonderful book world all the time or work at an independent bookstore. Simply decide which subscription is right for you, choose your subscription length, and sit back until your book arrives! 

Step 1

Choose a subscription

We have five different subscriptions to satisfy any bookworm. Take a peek at our past book selections or read our subscription descriptions below to decide which is perfect for you!

Step 2

Subscription length

How often would you like to renew your subscription? We send books once a month but you may choose whether to renew every month, every three months, or every six months.

Step 3

Sit back, relax, & wait for the good reads to arrive!

We send subscriptions by the 20th each month so USA subscribers can expect to receive their package before the end of the month. Enjoy your incredible, hidden gem book!
