Monthly chocolate and book deliveries? You know where to send 'em.

Last January I set myself a few goals that I wanted to accomplish by the end of 2019. One of them being to run a 5k, (which thus far, I have not achieved), another being to read a book a month (which again, thus far, I have not achieved).

Turns out I’m not so good at keeping resolutions.

Couldn't have put it better myself guys.

Though I’m shamefully far from my new year’s pledge to read 12 books this year, I think that the anticipation of a new monthly book delivery would certainly help get my bum in gear.

Which is what The Book Resort does. A Waterford-based subscription box, they deliver a different book straight to your door every month.


Along with some Irish chocolate, because reading without chocolate is just no fun, and a small surprise.

Book lovers can request certain Irish authors and opt for books from their favourite genres, including thriller, bestseller, fantasy, action or horror to name a few.

Or if you prefer to live life a little on the wild side, you can choose the ‘surprise me’ option and leave the decision-making in someone else’s hands.

Signing up for a monthly subscription will cost you €23 while a one-time gift box complete with a handwritten card is €25. Free nationwide delivery (including to Northern Ireland)

Committed to buying from Irish suppliers, the company showcases up-and-coming locals, introducing them to a wider market. Support your own and all that.


Described as “self-care for book lovers”, if that’s not a reason to invest in one of their book subscription boxes then I don’t know what is.
