Hello Book Clubbers! Your business is our business, and it's so important for us to ensure you know what's going on with your packages, including where it is! This page shows up-to-date updates and we want to ensure that everything here is something you can easily access anytime! Over the past year we have faced many challenges when it comes to shipping during a global pandemic. We are still facing many difficulties regarding delays with receiving items from our suppliers due to not having enough shipping containers/boats to meet the increased demand currently facing manufacturers around the globe.
We are so sorry for the impact these delays have had on our boxes and are doing all we can behind-the-scenes to prevent future delays and will regularly keep this page updated with all the most recent information.
If you have any additional questions regarding your order, please reach out to us at info@onceuponabookclub.com and our team will be happy to help!

Worried your package won't arrive in time? Print out our mini box and gift message to give to your recipient in the meantime!
This can also be downloaded and emailed to give them a fun little DIY while they wait for their magical reading experience to arrive!
