Surprise surprise!

Do you recognize the following set-up?
You have already read all the books on your nightstand and there is no title on your to-be-read list. A pandemic keeps you from traveling to your favorite bookstore and browsing shelves for some inspiration. All you long for is for someone to surprise you with A GOOD BOOK!

We know the feeling - so we came up with the ABC Booklover Box: you choose a genre and a size and a surprise box full of books and merchandise will come your way. Some pure inspiration, curated by your local bookseller! You can also order the box for a booklover friend.

This is a new product of ABC and we would love to hear what you think of it. Please feel free to send us feedback about your experience.

Wherever you are - whatever you do - keep reading,
your ABC staff
We are so proud that more than 40 aspiring authors participated in our Writing Contest - and we have winners! For the complete versions of the winning short stories, visit The Story Lounge!
