Frequently Asked Questions

Product

Can I choose the books that are going to compose the Books Box?

No, the concept of our Books Boxes is based on the surprise. The books are selected by our team based on the answers you provided to the questionnaire. Fill in the language, age and interests of the Books Box recipient. With this information, we will be able to choose the best book for your Books Box! Still need to be convinced? Check out the questionnaire before purchasing your Books Box ;)

What if I doesn't like one of the items / books you selected?

To ensure that the books meet your expectations, fill in the questionnaire with as much information as you need.  But tastes and colors are in nature, and we understand that a book may not be suitable for your taste or situation. Should this happen, please have a look at our conditions and contact us if needed via our contact form.

What if I already have the title your sent me in my bookshelf?

Ah, surprises! If you have received a book that you already had in your collection, we imagine two options. If you liked the book, you can give it as a gift to someone close to you. If not, please contact us via our contact form.

Can I offer the Books Box to someone else?

Of course, many of you offer book boxes to your godchildren, nephews and nieces, children and grandchildren but also to your friends. You can give a different delivery address

Our bookshop has been in business since 2017 and we have built our catalogue on the basis of literary and artistic creation.
