The Bookworm Box - April 2017 Review

The Bookworm Box is the amazing brainchild of author Colleen Hoover. It is run nearly exclusively by volunteers, and they donate 100% of their profits to charity.

Each box includes a minimum of two books signed by the authors. I've noticed they are usually romance novels, and this month I received Tapping the Billionaire by Max Monroe and Emerge by S.E. Hall. In addition to the two books, The Bookworm Box always includes a bit of swag. In my box was a Bookworm Box pen, magnet, and tea towel, along a few bookmarks from other authors.

Most of the books included are donated by the authors and so there may be many different versions of The Bookworm Box in a given month, depending on their supply of books.

Sometimes they even include a third book with the intention for you "pay it forward" and donate the third book to a friend or library in need.

Cost - $39.99 + shipping

To date The Bookworm Box has donated nearly one million dollars to different charities and organizations.

This April alone, The Bookworm Box was able to donate $10,000 to each of the following charities:
1. Good to Go Mobile Soup Kitchen
2. Read Alliance (early tutoring for at risk students)
3. Design Outreach (a group of engineers who designed a durable water pump handle for water wells in third world countries)

Unfortunately for me international shipping is pretty steep (because books are heavy y'all), but if you live in the continental US this is an awesome way to give back while treating yourself to some good reads at the same time!
