Got Your Blue Envelope Yet?

Hey booklovers, we've got a gift for you! 

You already know that our flagship subscription service, Brilliant Books Monthly, makes a fantastic gift.  So fantastic, in fact, that we get hundreds of orders for new and renewed subscriptions during the holiday season alone. 

This year, if you place your order early enough to beat the Christmas rush, we've got a little something just for you.

What is it?  Well, like every hand-picked Brilliant Books Monthly selection, it's a surprise.

What's in that Blue Envelope?
