You are asked to fill in a questionnaire about preferences, tastes, genres etc. Subscribers receive a new book each month handpicked for them by the in-house “Bibliotherapists” (great job title). This is a wonderful gift for anyone that loves the romance of old-fashioned packages wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string. Mr B’s book subscription packages arrive complete with brown paper, string and stamped with a wax seal.
