Mr B's Reading Year Book Subscription


« Back to Spas and Gifts 


Mr B's Reading year


As the lucky recipient of a Mr B’s Reading Year you will receive eleven fantastic books over the course of a year, each one hand-selected by a dedicated Mr B’s bibliotherapist to suit your reading tastes, beautifully wrapped and delivered to your door.  It's the perfect book subscription for any bibliophile!


You can buy the book-lover in your life (or yourself) a Mr B’s Reading Year in two forms: Paperback Reading Year at £145 and Hardback Reading Year at £220, for recipients in the UK.


The Paperback Reading Year is also available for recipients based further afield at £175 (Europe including the Republic of Ireland) and £190 (Rest of the World).


Each Reading Year includes:

  • Initial 20 minute consultation with one of the Mr B’s team either at the shop, on the telephone or via emailable questionnaire so that we can get a feel for your reading tastes and habits. (We'll also collect the address of where you'd like the books sent at this point, so don't worry if the voucher is being sent somewhere else!)
  • Eleven books which will arrive on or around the first day of each month (excluding January, where we assume you’ll still be reading your Christmas books!).
  • Our unique gift-wrapping of brown paper and string all finished off with a Mr B’s wax seal and stamp.
  • Follow-up contact with your bibliotherapist during the year to make sure our choices are on track.
  • A Mr B’s Reading Year voucher (or e-voucher) which can be sent to the purchaser or recipient at the outset to explain the gift.
  • All postage costs.

Some answers to questions that we often receive from Reading Year recipients:

  • The Reading Year is initiated as soon as you get in touch with us to complete the brief consultation on reading preferences. You’ll receive your first book at the beginning of the next month. 
  • Our bibliotherapists love to receive feedback on the books that they send out to you as this helps them fine-tune the selections that they make as the year progresses.
  • We try to avoid sending out books which you might already have. Wherever we think there’s a risk of you having come across the book already, we can send you (or someone close to you) a “spoiler” email hinting at the book that’s about to be sent. If you do already have the book received then we will replace it with a new choice if you send it back to us.
