I love mail that isn’t bills. And bookmail is THE BEST. I look for book subscription services that ship to the UK almost every month.
I even wrote to Book of the Month, asking when they were going to offer international shipping. I got a very nice, very general non-response.
With the help of some bookish friends who don’t have blogs, I’ve come up with a list of book boxes that do offer international shipping options.
Where do I sign up?
Blurbs for each company/service taken from their websites.
I’m not affiliated with any of them, but I have used one of them.
Christmas is coming, you guys.
Muse Monthly was founded in 2015 under one founding principal: at the end of a long day, there is nothing better than curling up with a hot cup of tea and escaping into a good book. Our boxes, each perfectly curated with a book and tea pairing, are designed to inspire and comfort those of us who need some time for themselves. It’s self-care for bookworms!
BookVoyage is a monthly subscription box for avid readers and global citizens. Each box is country-themed and contains a foreign book written by a critically-acclaimed local author and translated into English, tea or coffee from that country, as well as a sweet or savoury treat to go with the hot drink, giving you what we like to call a truly global immersive reading experience.
MIRROR BOOK BOX is a monthly subscription box dedicated to all the little differences that make us who we are & featuring books that reflect them. Each month subscribers will receive a ‘reflective’ book and 4-5 items related to the theme of the month.
The Book Drop is a subscription box lovingly created & run by a little independent bookstore at the beach.
Note from Lorna: This is the only one I’ve actually used myself.
