Big Reads

Books With A Past is now offering a large-print book subscription box. We know some of our readers struggle with failing vision, which also means many are not able to drive themselves to the bookstore. This new program will send out one new large-print book to each subscriber each month. We’re offering four categories from which to choose: mystery, romance, fiction/literature, and nonfiction (usually history or biography). You choose the genre and we will choose a new and wonderful book for you to read.
If you would like to give this subscription as a gift, it’s a great way to let a loved one know you’re thinking about them every month. We will always be happy to include your personalized or hand-written note with each box—just come into the store or mail us your messages, and we’ll slip them in with the books. If you live in Maryland and Dad lives in Kansas, he’ll get something in the mail from you (okay, from us, but also you) like clockwork. Order Now or contact us for more information. Happy Reading!
