We think it’s because writers create the world they want to see — one without constant, awkward social interaction.
 
Subscribe to our monthly subscription box for books and experience a relaxing retreat from social events, awkward parties, and dreaded small talk, so you can immerse yourself in a world away.

Have you ever noticed that books don’t have forced small talk?

Never Be Stuck With a Book You Don’t Like

Don’t like the book?
You can help give a rescue book a new home.

As introverts ourselves, we know that there’s nothing more disappointing than a book that just doesn’t hit the spot. 
 
That’s why we provide The Best Book Promise. If you don’t love the book you got in your book subscription box, we’ll send over another book from our Rescue Book Collection — completely free. 
 
Our Rescue Books are a collection of publisher overstock copies that need a loving home. Most Rescue Books are in unread/like new/new condition.

BEST BOOK PROMISE

Our monthly subscription box for books and at-home spa days is the perfect gift for readers and hermits alike. It has everything an introvert needs to rest and recharge: 

Everything You Need to Recharge

One hand-poured soy candle for when you need to be behind a closed door.

A 1 lb bag of luxuriously scented bath salts to calm your nerves after making a phone call. 

A bar of handmade soap with a fragrance that will help you forget all of the awkward encounters you’ve had the past week.

A small-batch snack handmade from a small business, no sharing required!

A new mass market novel of your choice to transport you to a world without small talk.

If we have to break up, then we prefer to do it over text. Just kidding – you can cancel your subscription by accessing your account on our website. By canceling your subscription, you’ll cancel any future payments or renewals. If you have a pre-paid membership, you will continue to receive boxes until your number of pre-paid months runs out.
 
P.S. We’ll miss you.

No. 4

Yes, you can – we want you to be happy – but you'll need to act fast. Once we ship your box, it will be too late to give you a refund for that box. We send you pre-renewal notifications so there are no surprises as to when your next box will ship, so be sure to cancel before you next renewal or ship date.

No. 5

Yes, we’ll send you emails reminding you of when your subscription is set to renew and also when your box is ready to be shipped out.

Our monthly boxes are the best gifts for book lovers for birthdays, holidays, and any day. Plus, because Introverts Retreat Box is a little slice of spa heaven delivered each month, our boxes make great gift boxes for women on Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, her birthday – shoot... really any occasion or just to say, “I see you, I love you, now go enjoy some time away.”

No. 8

We include sweet, artisan snacks in our monthly book + retreat boxes. We love to send chocolate, but only from October through May. The rest of year's treats may not be chocolaty - but still are delicious. Our treats may include gluten or dairy.

It’s cool, boo. You do you. Here are a few ways you can still enjoy your bath salts:
  • Option 1: Mix two parts bath salts with one part shower gel and use as a body scrub.
  • Option 2: Pour bath salts into a small open dish and use as an air freshener.
  • Option 3: Sprinkle bath salts in the corner of your shower and let the warm water release the fragrance.
  • Option 4: Fill a large bowl or basin with warm water and add bath salts. Set it on the floor and relax with a foot bath.
  • Option 5: Pour bath salts into small muslin or organza bags and use as sachets.
  • Option 6: Gift them to the bath-lover in your life.

No. 10

Because our boxes contain consumable items, we cannot accept returns. However, we’re happy to replace a book that you don’t like – that’s our Best Book Promise – and we’ll also replace any damaged items. If there's anything you don't like in the box, consider using it as a gift for someone you like (or don’t!).
