Imagine a book box that is filled with so many levels of surprises, that it becomes the ultimate Christmas gift for not only your favourite bookworms but you yourself! A Box of Stories is here to turn that fantasy into reality.
Here is a list of 5 reasons why A Box of Stories is the biggest surprise under the tree this holiday season:
1. A Box of Stories' surprise begins at home
Our first layer of surprise hits you right when you unveil the 4 surprise titles within your box. As we pay attention to uniquely curating each box, there is no scope of running into spoilers, whatsoever. From hardbacks, to special editions, to signed copies - you never know what hidden gems you would find inside! Although you will certainly not know what to expect in your box, what’s inside will surely leave you feeling warm and fuzzy!
2. Heighten your surprise by venturing into uncharted territories
Opening a surprise box of books is just like opening a present on Christmas morning.
Every time you open A Box of Stories, you discover 4 surprise books inside, books that you would have never heard of. Why would you not have heard of them? All 4 books in your box are those that have received a lot of love but not a lot of marketing budget! These books have gone by unnoticed and have never fallen into your radar.
Thus, surprising yourself with A Box of Stories can be the perfect way to skip the monotony of reading only hyped books and to get out of any impending reading slumps!

With a Box of Stories, you could select a surprise box of historical fiction books and journey through 4 very different passages of time, or you could even go for our surprise box of fiction books and discover an unbelievable range of narrations.
