Treat Your Shelf!

We are so excited to launch the Tea Leaves and Reads Book Boxes! Why not get stuck into the exciting boxes that we will hand-pick for you and which include the following: 


The books are all highly rated and chosen especially by us because we know that they are written by authors that you’re going to love – because we love them too! We read and review over 150 books a year and choose our stock based on our knowledge and experience of various genres and authors. You can choose whether you’d like your box to feature a brand new book or a pre-loved book in beautiful condition.


No book is complete without a delicious beverage. Our boxes have you covered. We include four drinks in each box from a mixture of our suppliers. We only use products that we have tried and loved and we currently use Yorkshire Tea, English Teashop and Beanies Coffee. Some of our Classic Children’s boxes include Cadbury’s Hot Chocolate instead. If you’d like something specific please do let us know!


Why not induldge in a tasty snack while you get lost in a good book? We only use treats that we personally have tried and enjoy. Our current suppliers are Meredith & Drew who provide biscuits in a variety of flavours and which are suitable for Vegetarians.


Perfect for framing or displaying in your home – we include a bookish postcards with each box featuring a selection of classic books, bookish quotes and illustrations. We believe in keeping our boxes simple and book related and our postcards are the finishing touch.

Treat Your Shelf!

We love books! We love books so much that we are just keen to share the bookish love and make sure that some of the fantastic books we have read  reach the shelves of other book lovers. These are some examples of what we send out. If you’ve seen something you like or you are searching for something specific do let us know as we may be able to help.

We review books too!

We have read books for over thirty years (or over sixty years if you combine our ages!). We often read and review books ahead of publication thanks to the generosity of many authors and publishers that we are connected with which helps us to know what’s coming and what we should be putting in our boxes.
