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.

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.

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.

I purchased Bookabuy as a gift for my daughter who loves to read. She absolutely loved getting a new book in the mail every month. Best gift ever! Since then my kids purchased me Puzzlepost for Christmas and I loved my first puzzle.

Best gift ever

published

I first tried bookabuy as a gift to myself. After a six month subscription, I was delighted and renewed for a following 12 months. I have also gifted subscriptions to book loving loved ones. I was super happy with the books that I received and experienced a range of reads, many which I would never have discovered on my own. I have never received a book that I already have which is nothing short of miraculous because I have heaps! I love that exchanges are possible if this happens. I'm impressed that I can also send gift subscriptions to my family in New Zealand. These subscriptions are a special treat and I frequently recommend them to others.

A Yearly Subscription as a Birthday Present

I have been buying a 12 month Subscription to Bookabuy for my wife's birthday present for at least the last 3 or 4 years. My wife both really enjoys the 'reading' AND also looks forward to a 'monthly surprise' when she opens the parcel at the post box. - Nick, Geelong
