Frequently Asked Questions

What's in my box?

The BookVoyage Box has a specific country theme each month, and contains a book from a critically-acclaimed foreign author translated into english, tea or coffee from the themed country, as well as a sweet or savoury snack from there, giving you a truly global immersive reading experience.

What language will the books be in?

The books we deliver are English translations of books written in other languages, or books originally written in English in the case of countries where the native language is English (Australia and Canada for example).

Will I get the same country twice?

One of our main aims is to get your reading more broadly, so our promise to you is this - unless you specifically request it, you will not get a repeat country until you have read a book from every country on earth!

How are the books chosen?

The books are chosen by our team of avid readers, with heavy input from a global community of book-lovers. We mainly choose books loved by the masses in the chosen country, written by critically acclaimed local authors.
