I just started reading my first book today and I am thoroughly enjoying it! The best thing about this subscription (besides the excellent value for money) is that it enables you to try books that you would never usually pick for yourself. I would highly recommend this service!
Brilliant just what I need in my life!
A monthly dose of quality books picked at random which intensified the satisfaction as the fact I don’t know what each box will bring is a real thing of beauty- it’s like having a secret friend that treats me with a box of stories some fact some fiction that I enjoy immensely

I ordered on the 21st of December, and the box came in time for Christmas. Mind you, it was a present for me so it wouldn’t have mattered! The books were recent and also I’d heard of two of the authors which I hadn’t expected! Emma Donoghue for example. Very pleased with the selection, and they are all books that I definitely will read although obviously I can’t say yet whether I will enjoy them! Easy to use website, quick delivery, great idea.

My mum loved the selection and has nearly finished the first book already

I'm so happy with my box of books this month! I was sceptical at first but I'm really excited to read these. Thank you :)
Absolutely love the surprise of the books every time I receive a box. I never know what sort of thing I’d like to read so this company make it easy for me! Love discovering new authors and genres.

The books are a really good quality. Some are ones I'd choose but most are books I would not give a second look, but reading them they are really good. They choose better for me than I would myself. Excellent service and quality..would highly recommend.
- Margaret Bailey
I love the variety of books and the quality of the books chosen. I received my box only a few days ago and have devoured two of the books already. They’re not normally books I would choose but they are excellent
Fantastic service. Quick and efficient. Books were in an excellent condition on arrival. Loved the books. Not books I’d have picked myself but thoroughly enjoyed the first 2 I’ve read.
