How do I know I won't already own the book you send me?Updated a year ago

The books we include in our boxes are typically published within 45 days of our monthly ship date. If you aren’t always purchasing new books right away, chances are you won’t have the book we will be including. However, if you are in the habit of picking up new books on release day or pre-ordering anticipated titles, there is a chance you may receive a book you already have.

Because our OwlCrate books have exclusive features they will always be a little bit different than the ones you'd find in bookstores! Our Young Adult book picks will always be signed by the author. Our Middle Grade and Adult Fantasy book picks are often signed as well, but may include a signed bookplate or digital signature. You will always be guaranteed to receive a unique edition you can’t find anywhere else!

We usually drop a fairly big hint as to what our book will be in our monthly theme reveals, so if you need to skip a month, you can do so. For information on how to skip a box, please see our How do I skip a box? article. You can also email [email protected] and we will be happy to help!
