General Information


What is The Book Case?

The Book Case will surprise you with a case every month that includes an exciting, newly-released novel and 3-5 bookish goodies to add to your reading adventure. We will release a theme every month, and the mystery case will become available to purchase online. Every month your Book Case will be a surprise adding to the magic of unboxing your case.


How much does The Book Case cost?

We are trying to stick to R 450.00 per case, including delivery. Depending on the price of the newly-released book, we will add between 3-5 bookish goodies.


What age group do you recommend The Book Case for?

We will release the books age appropriate rating every month when we release the theme. However, the book case aims to provide books that are appropriate for anyone 14-years old and upwards. This obviously also depends on a person's reading level. 


What comes inside a Book Case?

Every single case comes equipped with an exciting, newly-released novel. I spend a huge chunk of time researching upcoming new releases, and only choose the best I can find. I will also fill your case with 3-5 bookish goodies for the avid bookworm - bookmarks, cards, journals, prints, accessories, stickers, jewelry, candles and anything else awesome that I can find! Some of the items will be exclusive to The Book Case and when possible, promotional items will be included.


What types of books can I expect?

We cater for a variety of the bookworm community. The chosen newly-released novels will vary from contemporary to history, thriller, fantasy, young adult, adult fiction, dystopian and more. Since we are based in South Africa, we will send out a mixture of paperbacks or hardcovers depending on the distributor. Every month you will receive a highly-anticipated novel in the chosen genre and newly-released in South Africa.  


How do I know I won't already have the book you will send me?

We research months in advance, and chat to publishers and distributors regarding newly-released novels in South Africa. We will only select the books that have been released within 60 days of their U.K or USA published date. Please remember that South Africa is behind on releasing the books in our country. So most of the chosen books that you will receive in your monthly case will not be available to purchase at the SA bookstores yet. So unless you're buying a newly-released book every couple of weeks, chances are you won't have what we'll send you! 


How are the items chosen for the boxes?

In terms of the novel, it is researched months in advance. And only the best, highly-anticipated novels are chosen. With regard to the accompanied items, I love to curate gifts and I have a special interest in searching for the coolest, most interesting goodies I can find that relate to the theme we're releasing. We love working with small businesses and most of the items will be exclusive to The Book Case.
