There is nothing as heart-warming as seeing babies, toddlers, young children, teenagers, and adults fall in love with books. We believe the magic of reading is something that sustains and informs one in childhood and for one's whole life.
What better gift to give someone than sending them a new book in the mail!
Imagine the sparkle in a young reader's eyes when they realize there's a parcel for them, then the delicious suspense as they open the wrapping, followed by a big smile because someone who loves them has sent a brand new book!!! And not only is there the joy of the moment, there is also the thrill of reading the new book and the satisfaction of adding it to one's growing library of wonderful books.
You may be thinking, "It's a great idea but I don't have the time to do all the steps: select the book, wrap it up - once to be pretty and once for the post; and then get it to the post office!" Also, while you may have a general idea of what book you want to send, it's quite possible that there might be some reading treasures you might not find on your own.
"The Gift of Reading" is Woozles' way of helping you send someone you love a special book in the mail on a regular basis....every month, or six or four times a year, or on special dates like birthdays, special holidays, and school breaks - you pick the frequency.
All you have to do is tell us (a) the name, age and address of the lucky recipient; (b) how often you want us to send a book; (c) whether you want to send paperbacks/boardbooks or hardcovers; and (d) whether you have any guidelines or preferences (for individual titles or genres)...we'll look after the rest.
Carefully selected books, gifts from you, will begin to arrive in the mail. And if we ever send a book that someone already has or doesn't like for some reason, all they have to do is return it to us and we'll be happy to send a replacement.
