2022 and the Part Timer Road

The Read To Sleep Week May 2020

The Read To Sleep Week May 2020

This challenge requires each participant to read for 6 minutes or more each night before they go to sleep. It doesn't have to be a fiction book (or a book date from us), it can be a kindle, newspaper, magazine, non fiction book or anything that causes you to sit back, relax and just read.

Not only will this challenge help reduce your stress levels,  but also for some of you it may hopefully bring back a love of reading again. 

April is Stress Awareness Month. If you are looking for more information the wonderful charity MIND explains what stress is, what might cause it and how it can affect you. They have articles that include information about ways you can help yourself and how to get support. 

The Book Matchmaker Reading Retreat FEB19

The Book Matchmaker Reading Retreat FEB19

Eat. Drink. Read. Sleep.  The first ever Book Matchmaker Reading Retreat has been on my mind for a longtime and i have been constantly thinking of...

What our customers think...

Super Cute and Different!

The packaging was so cute I didn't want to open it! The book itself is one I most definitely wouldn't have chosen myself but am so far enjoying! Seriously recommend to all!


I loved this whole process

My book came beautifully wrapped and with a high quality Teapigs tea bag. The book itself was signed and I'm really looking forward to reading it. I will definitely treat myself with another book in future.


Such a great idea

I bought a book for myself and it turned out to be one of the best books I have ever read. Will defo be buying some of these for Christmas presents.


The Perfect Gift

My friends were so happy to receive these for Christmas. Both commented on the quality of the wrapping! These have also gotten both my friends back into reading. I will be buying again in the future for both myself and others. Finally, the delivery time was also quite short considering I ordered them during the Christmas period and each one is made to order. Thank you for the amazing experience.


You Won't be dissapointed

Love this whole concept. As a huge bookworm myself, I can imagine how thrilled I would be with this gift. I was not disappointed when I ordered one for my mum and Mum in law for Christmas. Perfect books for them and they loved the idea too.


The perfect gift for a bookworm

What a delight to buy a gift for someone special and not even know what it is hidden within the wrapping. This book was well received and they relished the sentiment of The Book Matchmaker. Happy reading guaranteed!


Great Gift Idea

I have purchased a number of different books from the Book Matchmaker. I love that I know I am buying a book, but that I don't know what the book is. Adds surprise and mystery to the gift, which is beautifully and thoughtfully wrapped.


Thoughtful and beautifully designed!

Bought this for part of a friends 30th birthday present. As it was so close to Christmas the only boxes advertised on the site were festive ones. A quick email to Katy and she had sorted a perfect bday box, complete with candle! My friend loved it and the whole package was beautifully put together. Lush pressie. Will definitely buy again.


A fabulous experience!

This was my second blind date with a book and once again I wasn't disappointed, the book I received was one that was on my wish list so I was incredibly happy with it. The packaging was beautiful, I could tell it had been wrapped with love. The experience of opening it up was really special and the coffee bag and cute little note were the perfect accompaniments. The Book Matchmaker have taken book buying to a whole new level!
