Great service.

Loving my subscription. Always wonderfully surprised to receive books I’d choose myself, without having to source them. Have also gifted a subscription and my friend is loving the books they receive.

Let down

published

We used bookabuy some time ago and were left rather disappointed. The site took us all the way through to purchase and subsequently let us purchase a product. We received an email a few days later saying there had been an error and that we would have to pay around another $100 to get what we had purchased. Pretty disappointed that they had offered the product and then accepted our payment, only to then say it wasn’t valid. We won’t be using bookabuy again.

Perfect gift for an avid reader

A great concept well executed. Customer focus and service are excellent. Book choices spot on. One very happy recipient. Could only be improved by offering a discount to returning customers.

Love receiving my surprise book in the mail each month!

So delightful each month when my Bookabuy arrives. Bookabuy is a great gift for someone or yourself that keeps giving. I've got friends on to it too! Great book selections.

A surprise each month for a year was wonderful

published

I chose a year of crime as a gift and the recipient experienced a surprise each month. The curated books were of high quality and each were a satisfying read. The books arrived on time and always packaged with care. It was a great experience for both the recipient and me the gift giver.

I love Bookabuy!

published

I’ve been receiving bookabuy for over 18 months. And as someone who reads 60 odd books a year & has 200 in her to read bookcase someone they always nail it. They’re the best! I only wish I could subscribe to more. It’s my favourite time of the most. If you’re considering it, stop just do it. x

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

This is the best gift for any book lover.
The gift that keeps on giving.
Always a great read no matter the book that arrives. And something you may not pick usually, gives you some variety.

Great gift from my son

I received books I probably would not have selected myself. Opened up a whole new range of authors. Really looked forward to receiving each new book. Now looking for other books by some of these authors

Efficient & attentive

Bookabuy was so careful to pay attention to the books they should avoid when I ordered a subscription for my mother. The books were beautifully wrapped and arrived at monthly intervals. What a treat!

Great idea to encourage reading.

published

I was able to read some great books that I would not have otherwise picked up.
However, I think a feedback system where you can review the book that was sent would help to ensure satisfaction with further reads.

Bookabuy - Fantastic company

published

This is the third year of subscribing to Bookabuy and what a fantastic service it is. Really easy to set up the subscription and their selections for the genres I specified are excellent. It was originally purchased so I could try some new authors and it has exceeded expectations. There is something really special about receiving the Bookabuy parcel in the letter box each month! No plans to cease the subscription - a very happy customer. Thank you Bookabuy!

The gift that keeps on giving!

published

The choices are always appropriate genre for my taste ( I was asked to explain what I enjoy). They are recent publications.
They provide lovely bookmarks and sustainable wrapping! I keep the string! My subscription was a perfect gift from someone who knows my love of reading.

Good service if you enjoy reading!

published

Bookabuy isn’t a pretty good service if you enjoy reading books and are able to read them quickly. Having a book delivered that you may not have looked at before was really good and allowed me to explore new titles. The cost is the only issue I have as I can not afford $30+ per book. If cost is not an issue than the ease of having a new book at your door every month through bookabuy may be for you!

Awesome gift idea!

I bought a subscription for my mum. She loved receiving a new book every month. The Bookabuy team did an amazing job choosing books that she would love. Would definitely recommend as a gift idea for someone else or yourself.
