What Is The Universe Bound Book Box?

Universe Bound offers many different types of boxes. Our REGULAR and DELUXE Monthly Book Box Subscription delivers a curated box of two or more books, scented candles, bath products, wonderful teas, treats, and bookmarks. The Deluxe box takes it up a notch with additional items. We also offer a SINGLE book box as well a CONTENT only box.

  • Eclectic mix of high quality Indie, small press, or large house books are chosen with care and consideration. Our selection criteria is - we've read the book, people we respect have read the book, we want to read the book

  • All our candles, bath bombs, bath salts, and soaps are made by hand from our creative and expert staff. All fragrances are exclusive and made by our resident Perfumer.

  • Great Gift for friends and family who love reading great books, and enjoys a total self-indulgent experience of snacking, drinking delicious tea, hot chocolate, coffee, and basking in the wonderful glow of exclusively scented candles.

How Does The Subscription Work?

We don't offer monthly themes. Our approach is very practical and different. We follow a six book box set cycle. Book Box one will always have the tea infuser and tea spoon (one of ten different designs), along with the regular box items (see above). Book Box two will always include a Reader's Journal. Book Box three to six will always have some extra items. Our Deluxe subscription plan will include MP3 CD audiobooks, DVDs, and downloadable audiobooks.

You can cancel anytime, however, once a box ships we will not be able give a refund.

What is the Six-Book Box Cycle?

Each monthly box includes: A curated box of two books, a scented candle in a round steel tin can or heavy glass container, one tin can filled with delicious loose-leaf tea and mouth-watering coffee bean and caramel candy, plus bookmarks and special downloads and offers.

The first month box will contain in addition to the regular monthly box items: a tea infuser and a stainless steel creative flower tea spoon.

The second month box will contain in addition to the regular monthly box items: a copy of the Reader's Journal (The Reader’s Journal is your lighthouse. It’ll assist you with organizing your thoughts, tracking your goals, list who borrowed your treasures and maintain your sanity.)

The third and fourth month boxes will be used for extra special items that may not fit neatly in the other book boxes.

The fifth month box will contain in addition to the regular monthly box items: a copy of the Thinker's Journal (The Thinker's Journal is for recording thoughts, notes, and observations.
