Paper Dots is a newer book subscription that sends a book and an extra surprise to you each month. As an avid book lover, I was excited to be offered the chance to review their service.
The Cost: $25 a month for paperback, $30 a month for hardcover
The Products: Each month Paper Dots sends a book, plus an extra gift to make the reading experience come alive. If you’ve already read the book, you can send it back for free.
The Concept: Paper Dots curates a book selection for you each month based off the profile you fill out each month. You can also leave feedback to help tailor future book selections.
Here is a letter they send with your box.
Speak by Laurie Anderson – Retail Value $9.99
This is one of the few books where I’ve actually seen the movie before reading the book. I did enjoy the movie and am excited to get a chance to read the book. This is not the kind of book I typically would choose to read, but am glad to get a chance to enjoy. I did leave feedback indicating more specifically as to the type of books I really enjoy reading.
Bienfang Young Artists Sketchbook – Retail Value $6.18
My sister is really good at sketching, so this will make a great gift for her as this may be wasted on my stick figures.
General’s Charcoal Pencil 557-HB Hard – Retail Value $3.82
This was a sketch I found on the inside of the sketch book, I thought it was beautiful.
Thoughts: I really like the experience of getting a surprise book in the mail and I thought the extra gifts really fit with some of the themes in the book. I am really excited to start reading my book and to see what next month’s selection will be!
