Paper Dots August 2014 Review – Book Subscription Box


Paper Dots is a book subscription box, that sent me this box to review.  Paper Dots is $24.00 a month for a paper back and $30.00 a month for a hardback book.  In your box, you will also get a bonus item.  When you sign up, you fill out a questionnaire, so they can match you with the right book.  

The Details:

Cost: $25.00/month for paperback, $30.00/month for a hardback

What’s in the box? “One handpicked, expert-curated book will be delivered to your doorstep each month to engage and entice you into becoming a committed reader.  Plus, we’ll help the words come off the page and into your life with a little something extra.  “

What if I don’t like the book? If you don’t like the box, send the box and they will cover the shipping.

Paper Dots ships in a plain brown box and ships by Media Mail.


First Look


Everything was wrapped up individually.


Paper Dots included an informational card about how Paper Dots works.


Hidden (A Bone Secrets Novel) $9.99: This is a romance suspense novel and I am excited to read it.  I am have never been a romance novel reader, but I love a good suspense/mystery book.


Bonus Extra Magnifying glass: Paper Dots always included a bonus item in their boxes.  In this box, they included a magnifying glass.  It fits with the suspense/mystery book theme.  This can also be used to read the book.  I gave this to my 5 year old, who thinks it is the greatest thing ever.


Final Thought: This month had a great book.  I love the book selection this month.  While the book is only $9.99 on Amazon, I wouldn’t have selected this book to read, without this subscription.  I like you can fill out your profile and Paper Dots will find a book geared to your preferences.  If you want to try Paper Dots, click HERE.

    I think that this would be an awesome subscription….at a lower price point.
    What book costs 24.00? :/

    I tried this subscription because it is an awesome concept. I wasn’t unhappy with the items. Its just that I can’t see how they justify the price. My book had a retail value of $14. The gift had a value of $2.38. I paid $25 plus S+H on top of that for just this month. It looks like the value of the box reviewed here was even less than mine. Am I missing something?

    The price is a little crazy – go to a library and get a free book recommendation from an expert by telling them your preferences :)
