This is a fun box, thoughtfully curated. I love the idea of a book in a particular setting and then items pertaining to that setting included in the box. I have a 3 month subscription and am looking forward to all three books and shipments. Unfortunately, the shipping costs from the UK and the exchange rate are a bit much for me, no fault of the Original Traveling Reader, but it is what it is. I hope to renew at some point in the future because I so enjoy and appreciate everything about his box. Gosh, where I in the UK I would have subscribed for the entire year.
Brilliant! Thanks so much for your review. We're so glad you loved the boxes. Thank you for your custom and hope so see you again soon.
Purchased as a gift for my girlfriend. She loved every box!
Thanks so much for your review and 5 star rating. We're glad that your girlfriend loved our boxes! Thanks so much for your custom.
This was my first ever subscription box and I've been really impressed. As it is December it's got a Christmas theme and the book was based in London so they had to choose from a wide range. I received some really good quality gifts, there was cd that hadn't arrived with them in time so they sent it separately after but they had included some extra teabags to make up for it, which I was very impressed by. I looked up how much everything might have cost and £35 when you take into account the extra legwork that was put in I think it's a good deal. I really can't wait for January's box and would highly recommend it!
I just got my first box today, and it was so lovely, I actually got goosebumps! I feel like I've received a virtual trip to Cambridge!
Nothing travelling in the box. One book with a ton of tea. Would be more appropriately advertised as tea with a book box.
Hi Sara, we've reached out to you via email as it seems as if you have reviewed one of our on-sale boxes from the website (which included items from previous boxes and lots of free tea) instead of the monthly book box as this had not reached you by the time your review was added. We should have added a note to differentiate between the two boxes so we're sorry that it was confusing. Tracking states that you have now received your Original box and so we hope you are pleased with this (the Bath, England box) and that you can see we do try really hard to include the element of Travelling in our monthly boxes. If you are still unsatisfied with this second...
