Mystery boxes are a great way to mix up what you’re devouring AND a great way to send an awesome surprise to a friend or family member. Let Park Books curate a box just for you! A bookseller will hand pick titles we think you’ll love based on what box you choose and any additional info you share with us! Do you love thrillers but not into series? Love romance but nothing too spicy? Are you desperate for a new memoir but don’t know who to read next? Does your kiddo need books about kindness or are they struggling to stay engaged with reading? Choose from a selection of the menu below and then give us a little extra info (if you want) and we’ll put something together for you!
Media mail shipping (US only) or if local, you can pick up! We will make sure you get awesome items that fit the box, plus a few extra fun, bookish things! Unfortunately, we can’t offer refunds if it is something you’ve already read. Our suggestion: pass it on!
Mystery boxes may include books (hard & soft cover) and sometimes cool gift items we think you may like!
To order, select from the menu below and then give some specifics with us on the ordering page.
