The Book Box has landed!!

Thursday, June 04, 2020

Hooley-dooley it's a biggun! They weren't calling them Book Boxes for nothing!

Late last month I'd signed up to recieve a Book Box from the library. With no idea what would be in it, and as it turns out, no idea how much would be in it! 11 books and 4 dvds, wow! It was like Christmas opening the box!

It's a home delivery service (sent via post) for all library members who sign up to receive it, during the covid-restrictions. I think it is soon to be replaced with a "Click and Collect" type service in days to come.

The books (and dvds) were randomly selected by Librarians. There were different genre options, but no title/author options at this stage.

Hit the jackpot with this, as I've not read/heard of any of the books before, so it's good to come across some new reading.

    Hi Jan, it is a terrific service! It's back to being a service for eligible members now, not all members... so, it was great to be able to check it out. Turns out on closer inspection, most of the books were follow-ups to book series that I haven't read, so they will be returned without reading. It was still a chance to find out about these authors and series though, so that was good! The books I did read from the box, were enjoyed - cheers!

    Thanks all for stopping by! It is a great service! Usually avail as a homebound type service for eligible library members, it was opened up to include all members who registered during the time of covid-restrictions. It was a good chance to check it out on top of getting some different reading material to check out. Cheers!

    That is such an awesome service! It also forces you to read something new that you may not have picked up.
