The Perfect Book Box is here!

How it Works

The Secret Book Box is a monthly book box, available in the following categories:

* Women's Box for ladies of all ages.

Teen Box for girls aged 13-19.

* Children's Box for girls and boys aged 8-12.

* Limited Edition Deluxe Themed boxes (not always available) 

* Build A Box is a personalised gifting service whereby you select items from the books and merchandise tabs and put together a box of your own. 

For our children's boxes, a new theme is announced every month and boxes are prepared in line with that theme. You can then decide if you would like to purchase a box in that month's theme. Our teen and ladies boxes are not themed, but there is a general and a fantasy option, depending on your reading preference. 

Our Limited Edition boxes are pop up boxes which are announced from time to time and all merchandise follows a bookish theme.

All our boxes are single purchase and not automatically renewed, however subscriptions are available upon request. 

Each box contains one new release book, sourced direct from the publishers, as well as 3-5 bookish goodies.

Orders are placed online, with the option of EFT or credit card payment. 

Boxes are distributed the last week of the month. As we use only new-release titles, at times there may be delays beyond our control. All of our boxes are sent via door-to-door courier. The cost of this service is R65.00 per box. Your shipping options and cost will be displayed at checkout. You will be issued a tracking number on confirmation of your order.

*** Orders placed are for individual boxes and are not automatically renewed on a monthly basis. Subscriptions are available for those who want to secure boxes in advance and not have to re-visit the store every month. For more information, please email us at thesecretbookbox(at)
