Real Simple - October 22, 2018
"Once again, Page 1 Books sent a book that looks exactly like the kind I would pick for myself, yet I had never heard of this one before! It takes place in England, it is a suspenseful thriller, and it has a 4-star rating on Amazon. I can’t wait to get started on this book!"

Take Some Time for Yourself
DIY Thrill - December 10, 2018
"There are two reasons why this company is so great. First, they know their stuff. One of my favorite parts about my experience with Page 1 Books is that they chose books for me that I probably never would have chosen on my own, but they're books that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. And secondly, if you don't like a book they send you—or perhaps you've already read it—they will send you a different book, no need to send back the first. One of my most favorite things recently has been coming home to find that beautifully wrapped package and opening up all of the surprises it held."

Medium - December 05, 2018
"The reason I have been so delighted by this subscription box is because of the personalization put into each one. As you sign up, you’ll fill out a questionnaire. Then, your book fairy (that’s what I’ve been thinking of my book selectors as, at least. ;) ) will use this questionnaire to select the perfect book for your tastes."

Having spent most of her life as a marketer for consumer products, Brandy decided to take that knowledge and apply it to her passion for books. Page 1 Books was born from her constantly recommending books to people based on what was happening in their lives. Most of Brandy's responses begin with, 'Have you read..."

Page 1 Kids Manager
My love for children’s literature started thanks to one book, Lola at the Library by Anna McQuinn. I was pregnant and working at a preschool when I came across the Lola book. I must have read it a dozen times to the kids and as I would read it I would imagine taking my future child to the library just like Lola’s mom did in the story.

Having trained as a lawyer, Kristen met Brandy through Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy and they became fast friends. She understood Brandy's passion for books. She says spent a good portion of her youth paging through Scholastic Book Club flyers, earning stars for her Book It! button and reading books hidden under her desk at school or in hymnals at church.

"Excellent Customer Service! Excellent Customer Service! The customer service has been top notch! They are quick to respond to messages (both through Facebook and email). They have been amazing to work with from a computer glitch that miscalculated shipping to sending me not one but TWO books when I didn't care for the book in my monthly subscription. During a recent sale I was able to buy a gift card at a discount for a family member and it will cover the full price of a 3 month subscription."

"Great Adventure! I love the uniqueness of this experience. The books are picked for you based on your interests. I’m reading books I might never have considered. And...don’t like a book or already read it, they’ll send you another and encourage you to give the first one away. Yes, you don’t have to send it back! What’s not to love here!!!"

""I am I amazed by two things: first, you managed to give me exactly what I wanted -- and second, you gave me a book I hadn't read. I figured you'd send something that matched my preferences, and I figured it would be well written -- but I honestly thought the odds were low that I'd see something I hadn't read. I am thoroughly amazed. Thank you for a delightful, lovely pick.""
