What our readers say
"A Wonderful Subscription!"
"I've had The Book Drop for a little over a year now, and the excitement is still there to see what book I'm going to get for that month! I've tried out a few different subscription options since I read a little bit of everything, and the choices are wonderful! Some books I received I would have never thought to pick up if it wasn't for this subscription. Can't wait to see what other 2023 picks I receive!"
"Love their selections for kids"
"We have 2 subscriptions for our grandkids. Our 7 year old grandson loves the graphic novels. Our 9 year old granddaughter is equally as happy with the middle grade books she gets. Whoever makes the book selections does a great job. It is hard to find books that our grandkids haven't read but they manage to find books they've never heard of but thoroughly enjoy! After they've read the books they are passing them along to their school library so other kids can enjoy. We are very happy with Book Drop for kids!"
"Great subscription service! I wanted to get back into reading, but I always have a hard time selecting books myself. So, I love that this subscription does it for me based on my taste!"
