Each year, 77 million books don’t make the shelves. Even the best ones.
Our algorithm goes through thousands of reader reviews to find the very best books for your surprise box.
Every box you buy saves 4 hidden gems from being lost forever.

We pack all these brilliant brand new books into boxes and deliver them to you, one surprise box at a time.
77,000,000 books get destroyed every year in the UK alone.
Why? Just 17% of books are lucky enough to receive a decent marketing budget and make it to the ‘Bestsellers’ list created via the media and in bookstores. As a result, some of the BEST books published don't make the shelves and go unread.
Every box you buy saves 4 brand new books from getting destroyed.
Together we've already saved 100,000+ books
I'm loving it. When reviewing the boxes, it feels like Christmas for me. I love not knowing what I'm going to get. I then can't wait to look at them, read the back but then comes the difficult choice of which one do I start reading first x
I'm so happy with my box of books this month! I was sceptical at first but I'm really excited to read these. Thank you :)
I love having a surprise box of books which gets me reading things I might not have ever picked for myself. I also love reading books that don't have a huge amount of hype online as I have no preconceptions going in to it so there's never any disappointment.
ABoS is great value for money and I love that your money solely goes towards more books rather than little bits and pieces as has been the case in boxes with other companies in the past.
I'm glad I switched over!
Just wanted to let you know that I am beyond thrilled with the latest box and all (six) of the books that were sent. I’m currently devouring one of the books whilst having to self isolate - the box is a boredom-busting lifesaver.
Really impressed. Fantastic selection across a variety of sub-genres and I am so chuffed!!
Totally love my books !! Have enjoyed all and such brilliant value … just one more to read … Thank u 💗💗💗
Thank you so much for the books which arrived this morning.
I look forward to reading them, in particular authors I do not know and obviously deserve some recognition for their endeavours.
I congratulate you on an original concept.
I love getting these boxes every month. I have discovered so many new authors and reading books that I wouldn’t have ever picked up. Excellent service. Definitely recommend.

With lockdown and lots of other reasons, I found my anxiety was at a high and relaxing was impossible. My kindle was no joy so my husband ordered me a box of books to try and help. I'm now on my 3rd box and it hasn't disappointed. I have loved reading such a mix of fiction, many which I'd have never picked for myself. I have found my love of books again and can finally relax. I can very highly recommend A Box Of Stories for any book lovers.
