Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Brown Book Box?

The Brown Book Box is a monthly book subscription box geared towards YA fantasy and contemporary books written by authors of color. Each box will include a YA novel released within 90 days of the shipping date. Each box will also include fandom, bookish or theme-based goodies. 

What makes The Brown Book Box different from other subscription book boxes?

We strive to promote diversity and inclusivity during your YA reading experience. Having a variety of voices in literature is important, even if the voices are portrayed through make believe characters. When subscribing to The Brown Book Box, you will enter the lives of a variety of characters. Peace and Love to everyone!

What are fandom, bookish or theme-based goodies?

We define fandom items as any item related to Young Adult books or cultural diversity such as pins, buttons, Pop Dolls, etc. 

We define bookish items as any item related to reading such as candles and lightings for your bookshelves, coffee mugs, coffee or tea, bookmarks, book sleeves, and bath bombs or soap bars you may use to relax while reading.

Theme-based goodies are items related to the monthly theme. The monthly theme is based on the book selection. These goodies may also be bookish or fandom items but will be closely related to the book selection.
