Choose from diverse titles each month.

Tuma’s Monthly Book Box promotes books by and about people from all over the world to celebrate the diverse stories and experiences of black, indigenous, and people of color. While many book boxes focus on a subscription service for new releases, I aim to offer flexibility and hidden gems you might not otherwise discover on your own.

There's something for everyone.

Every month, I offer an adult, young adult, middle grade, and children’s selection for you to choose from, starting from $14.99. Make your choice, along with any add-ons, and wait for your box in the mail.

You can make your monthly box even more special by choosing the Gift Add-on Bundle to receive awesome gift items from talented BIPOC creators in your book box.

Enjoy additional perks!

About Tuma:

My name is Fatuma Hydara and I am an 8th grade English teacher by day and a reader-entrepreneur by night. I've always been book-obsessed. As a child, I hid under my covers with a flashlight reading late into the night. Growing up, books and stories were gateways into worlds and experiences that were so different from my own as the oldest daughter of West African, Muslim immigrants, living in The Bronx, NY. Read the rest of my story here.

If books and reading is your life, if you value diversity and connecting with others, if you enjoy simple pleasures, and if you're young at heart, then this is your home. Thank you for joining me in my journey. Read the rest of my mission/vision here.
