Most excellent gift idea

published

My husband and I bought a Bookabuy subscription for my Mum for Christmas. We were excited about the idea of Mum getting a book per month, based on her preferences and likes. Mum loves it! She waits excitedly for her book every month and has not been disappointed. She enjoys the mystery of which book she will get, when the package arrives at the door. It is a great service and nicely presented. We will definitely be increasing mum's subscription period. A fabulous gift!

I bought this for my mum and you could not have got it more RIGHT! She loved every book chosen for her and was surprised that they were authors and novels she hadn't come across before. Awesome service, one of a kind!!

A fun novelty!

published

Who doesn't love getting packages? Now add a new book too? YES PLEASE.
Although some of the titles aren't ones I would normally pick for myself, its a nice opportunity to branch out and read something new and out of my own scope of literature.
The tea is a fun inclusion too!

Reasonably good

published

This box isn't full of crap like so many can be. The tea is a nice addition and can last far longer than the box itself. The books themselves, while not incredible bestsellers, are reasonably good, and for me ranged from 'meh', to 'that was pretty good'.

Amazing

Always seem to send me amazing books that i otherwise wouldn’t pick, but end up loving! And the candles are my favourite so that’s an added bonus! Won’t be stopping my subscription anytime soon.

Serious effort to add in new titles

published

In my 12 months contract and my 6 months Bookabuy contracts, I received new titles all the time. Some were quite depressing. And some had significant accuracy in historical background.

Bookabuy got me back into reading

published

I subscribed because I got out of my regular reading habit last year. Great service, easy communication, Mel incorporates my wish list in my subscription. So far, all the books were great reads and I know I read at least one book a month.

My favourite subscription service.

A lovely surprise every month, and their picks are spot on. I’ve never received a book I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. Whoever chooses the books must have special powers I reckon.

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.

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.
