My Booksie Box


Booksie is committed to nurturing a lifelong love for reading. We combine the joy of getting lost in books with the excitement that comes with receiving gifts. All your book deliveries come wrapped up so with Booksie, it feels like Christmas (almost) every month! We love working with institutions that want to introduce students to African literature so please reach out if you fall into that category. And yes, we do ship worldwide 😉



How it works
