Free Shipping in Ireland & Northern Ireland
Everything you need to know & probably some stuff you don't but here it all is anyway
The Book Resort is a monthly book subscription box based in Ireland, that delivers brand new, recently published books & chocolate to Irelands book lovers. Don't live in Ireland? We can send our boxes anywhere in the world via carrier pigeon (aka couriers).
You choose either a subscription box or a once off box. Each month during the first 3 days of the month, we ship your box so subscribers should have their box during the first week of the month in Ireland. For everywhere else, we would expect you to receive the box by the second week. One time boxes ship 1-2 days after date of order, unless you specify a different delivery date.
Ah ha...now thats where the surprise lies. Its a closly guarded secret. Every month, we read, research and discuss what books to send the following month. We talk to book bloggers, reviewers & publishers to ensure the book we do choose is the ideal fit for you. However, you can specify the genre you prefer if you wish for your subscription.
You will receive your box the first week of the following month. If you sign up on 25th October for example, you will receive your first box during the first week in November if you live in Ireland and during the second week of November for the rest of the world.
We aim to ship by the 3rd of every month with our national couriers, so ideally everyone should have their boxes 1-2 working days after this in Ireland. We do like to allow a little time for weekends & bank holidays so we would aim to have all of the boxes delivered during the first week of the month. Your box may not arrive on the exact same day each month but it won't be far off. For our European and international customers the same applies, it might not be on the same day but it should be close.
You are billed each month on the same day that you signed up-if you would like to change this date at any stage please let us know. If you sign up on the 15th September, you will be charged on the 15th September and you will receive your first box during the first week of October if the box is being shipped in Ireland. You will be billed again on the 15th October and will receive that box during the first week of November and so on. Our European and international customers should expect their box to arrive in the first two weeks of the month.
The last day of each month is the final day for signing up, ie the 30th or 31st and of course for February 2020 it wll be the 29th as its a leap year.
In your account there is an option called subscription settings and the option is there to cancel. There is no notice period required, the day before you are billed is fine and you can cancel at any stage. You can also pause your subscription instead if you prefer.
The one time gift box contains a brand new recently published book and some yummy chocolate, the same as the subscription box but you have the option of having a hand written card included with the once off box if you wish. Please choose "This is a gift" in the checkout and fill in the type of card you would like and the message to be included.
The main differences are that a one time gift box is a one time purchase, whereas the subscription box is an ongoing subscription. A one time gift box will be shipped with 1-2 working days. The subscription boxes ship the first 3 days of every month. If requested a hand written card will be included in the one time gift box too.
Of course you can, just fill in your own address and the box will go directly to you.
We ship out our boxes on a daily basis (Monday-Friday), so you can expect yours to go out fairly soon after ordering, 1-2 days is the norm. If you live in Ireland you can expect it to be delivered very quickly. European and international customers should allow up to 10 days for delivery.
If you require a different shipping date please call us on 083 1329794 or email us>> email@example.com.
The subscription boxes that are shipped monthly normally contain the same products, obviously we do not repeat the books or chocolates in any other month of the year. Our one time gift boxes are rarely the same, it depends on stock levels and demand but rest assured they will love it.
Of course you can. Ring us on 083 132 9794 and we can take all of your details.
It is free, completely free anywhere in Ireland. No charge at all.

We would hate if this happens and it is a rare but possible risk as some of you are very well read. But we will fix it. We will arrange for a refund or replacement book to be sent straight to you and if you can send us back the book we will credit your account with the postage costs. If this does happen please let us know immediately.
We accept returns up to 14 days after you receive them. Just email us...firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact us page to let us know you are returning your box and we will refund your card once we receive the box back. Please don't eat the chocolate before sending it back!
Of course. We are very serious in our quest for global domination. We do have to charge for shipping outside of Ireland, we are sorry for this but postal rates are extremely high...possibly because we are on an island. Its a great island but it does mean a ship or plane is needed to get stuff off it and these are apparently very expensive....sigghhhhhh!!! On the bright side we are negotiating furiously with a couple of other couriers and will hopefully be able to offer less expensive shipping in the future.
The subscription box is €23 per month and comes with free delivery in Ireland. You are billed when you first sign up and then on the same day every month thereafter.
