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.

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 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

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 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!

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.
