The Gift of Reading

A book a month for a whole year selected by our team to match the taste of the recipient.

Here’s how it works – You have three options to choose from:

1. Treat Yourself – Receive a book selected for your own pleasure, every month for a year.

2. Treat Someone Else – Your friend, family member or partner will receive a carefully chosen book once a month. There will also be an initial welcoming letter explaining their gift and letting them know they have a year of books to look forward to.

3. Family and Friends – Their presents sorted for a whole year! Consult with our book specialist and then relax. Never miss a birthday or anniversary again! This package doesn’t involve a welcome letter as it is not applicable, but it will contain a hand written note from the chosen book specialist.

Each book will arrive gift-wrapped with a hand written note from your chosen book specialist explaining what makes this book so special.
You can choose the paperback selection for £135-00 or the hardback selection for £220*. This cost includes all UK postage, but we can post worldwide. Overseas costs will vary. If you would like us to provide a quote we would be happy to oblige.
One Little Chat – Join us for a Coffee
Please ask our staff to arrange a consultation over a coffee at the Tangerine Tree Café Totnes (we pay). We have knowledgeable and experienced staff that can recommend books to suit everyone’s tastes.

• Cliff Shephard – Non Fiction and Children’s Books
• Martin Woollacott – Fantasy Science Fiction and Graphic Novels
