Monthly subscription boxes have recently become popular in India and it’s always exciting to see an innovative box full of surprises delivered to your doorstep every month.
So today, I am going to list out few boxes for someone who loves reading; and also my second category from my theme “7 types of subscription boxes’’. If you missed out the previous one, do read it here.
What: Monthly Magazine Subscription
What’s inside: Subscription pack curated for you with genres to choose from. Go ahead and choose from travel, food, culture, design, architecture, fashion, sports and arts depending on your interest.
How much: Rs 1350/- per month
Once you’ve subscribed, you will get a surprise every month from a genre you picked. Doesn’t that sound cool? You are receiving a whole lot of magazines from India as well as abroad in the price that is totally worth it. They also have ‘’Surprise Me’’ option where they send you a title of their choice to read. Pure gold.
2. Books and Beyond
What: Book and Merchandise
What’s inside: Customized boxes which is not just limited to the bestseller novels but also merchandise like bookmarks,notepads.
How much: Rs 1500/- per month
The best part about this is that it’s not restricted to a particular genre as it aims to widen the exposure of a reader to various authors and genres. Check out their Harry Potter theme based box, you will just want to get one of those I promise. This is perfect for a bookworm and if you’re an avid reader, this one’s for you.
3. The Bookling’s Crate
What: Book and related merchandise
What’s inside: Latest fiction novels including goodies
How much: Rs 899/- per month
Very creatively curated box with a novel and goodies based around the theme. The best part is this is pocket friendly too. Now who wouldn’t want books and goodies in that price? Sure, I would.
4. Kaffeinated Konversations Book Box
What: Monthly subscription book box
What’s inside: Books from the authors of South Asia, Indian sub-continent as well as Africa.
How much: 2 monthly plans to choose from. New Brew Plan and Insta Brew Plan which is at Rs. 800/- and Rs.1200/- per month respectively.
I love the concept of #MakeInIndia as the books are selected by the founder herself. Not to miss out the merchandise in the box which is sourced from Indian startups. Kaffeinated Konversations is a perfect platform for Indian authors.
The only way to subscribe is to email them or inbox them here:
5. Story Trunk
What: Bi- monthly subscription boxes
What’s inside: Books that caters to Young Adult Fiction readers and has assortment of goodies
How much: 2 plans to choose from – Young Adult and Supreme Young Adult plan which is at Rs. 1399/- and Rs.2999/- per month respectively. The difference between these two plans are the number of books and the merchandise that you receive.
They pick up themes based on the book chosen for the particular month and box up the adult fiction along with the goodies which is delivered to you.
From buying books from the local store, renting or borrowing books to paying a huge shipping price, Bibliophiles in India have just had enough as the subscription boxes were only available in the international markets. Thanks to these Indian startups, we’ve got something.
The Bibliophiles are forever grateful 🙂
