Gifts for book lovers

For over ten years now Mr B’s has been coming up with exciting ways that you can gift (or treat yourself to!) books.

Check out our award-winning selection of bespoke gifts for book lovers…

Mr B’s Reading Clubs

Our Reading Clubs are all about the newest books we've read, loved and hand-picked just for you!

For years we've been honing our craft as your personal guide through the literary landscape, guaranteeing the Mr B's Seal of Approval when we really get behind a book we believe in. As a member of one of our Reading Clubs, you'll be receiving a hot-off-the-press, brand new read the Mr B's Team have certified fresh (wrapped in our magnificent gift wrap unique to each Reading Club), delivered straight to your door!

We post books all over the country and Reading Club memberships can be monthly rolling, or prepaid for 3, 6 or 12 months.

Read on to find out which Reading Club is the best fit for your reading tastes...

Last year we introduced The Crime Syndicate, a Reading Club where the table is round and the air gets smoky, and where, crucially, we pour every ounce of our investigative powers into seeking out the very best in newly-published crime fiction. Our chosen reads are a grab bag of thrillers, gumshoes, historical mysteries and all-round shady characters, always new out in paperback, and always impossible to quit.

The Torchlit Tales Society is for those voracious young readers who rip through their shelves as if all the books were disappearing tomorrow. Ranging from mystery to history, from real world to fantastical faraway lands, this is the perfect Reading Club for curious kids between the ages of 8-11.

Strong readers start with picture books that instil a love of story and support a child’s growing imagination. If ever you've been to our shop in Bath, you'll know we delight in adventuring through the Wood Between the Words of our children's section in search of diverse stories that explore playfulness, creativity, first feelings and experiences. So if you know a young reader between the ages of 2-5, then this is the time to encourage them to become a Picture Book Pioneer!

Mr B's Reading Subscriptions

As a recipient of one of our award-winning and bespoke book subscriptions, you begin by completing a short consultation so that we can get a feel for your reading tastes. One of the Mr B’s team will then be appointed as your dedicated bibliotherapist and will hand-pick a book each month, chosen especially to suit your reading tastes.

Every book arrives through your letterbox beautifully presented in our unique wrapping. You will also receive a limited edition bookmark to make sure you never lose your place!

This has been a brilliant and wonderful present. I have thoroughly enjoyed having you choose the books for me and this has opened my mind up to a new world of authors. The service I have received has been amazing. I would certainly recommend this subscription to anyone and everyone. It was an inspirational present

Mr B's Reading Spas

With a Mr B’s Reading Spa you are invited to our gorgeous shop in Bath for a unique bookish pampering gift in one of our sumptuous bibliotherapy rooms. One of our team of booksellers will learn all about your favourite reads by having an informal chat with you over coffee or tea and some delicious cake, before introducing you to a tower of books especially selected to suit your tastes.

The Reading Spa includes £60 to spend on your favourite recommendations, plus a Mr B’s mug and cloth bag and a £10 gift card for your next visit.

I cannot recommend Mr B's Reading Spa enough. The whole experience was so personal and carefully thought through. The member of staff I was allocated had been chosen to tune into my reading preferences - she was so friendly, very well informed, skilful at selecting books I may like and pushed my reading boundaries too. I was given it as a present and have already bought it as a present for someone else as I was so impressed
