We are a monthly subscription box service that brings together self-care with an immersive book reading experience.

Our boxes are full of quality goodies from small US-based artisans and boutiques that are not only connected to the book but focus on each of our five senses (sight, smell, taste, sound, touch). 5% of the profits
from each box supports children's education.

We release new book titles to members on the 15th of each month and around the 20th for non-members.

You'll have until the 1st of the following month to pick the book you'd like to receive in your upcoming subscription box.


We strive to ship boxes towards the end of each month.

You can check the status of out shipping on the Shipping Updates Status page.

We are currently shipping to the US + International

United States: $9.99/month

International: will depend on location

All orders are shipped out the last week of each month.

For ex. April boxes will ship the last week of April. If you preorder a box for a future month, like May, then your box will ship the last week of May.

Once received by USPS you should receive in it 3-5 business days.

Returns & Cancellations

We pick and pack your box with much care down to the last little detail, and would like to hear your feedback.

Although boxes are non-refundable, please email us at hello@authenticbooks.com if you are unhappy with your order.
