Reading is a wonderful pastime. You can lose yourself for hours at a time with a good book: you can be taken off to far and mysterious lands on action-packed adventures, travel back in time or even into the future, be on the hunt for criminals at large etc. There are books for children, teenagers, young adults, new adults and of course, adults covering everything from picture books to scholarly tomes. Education, escapism and enjoyment plus a whole lot more can be found within the pages of a book, fiction or non-fiction, paper versions and digital versions.
Reading should be taught and encouraged from very young ages, starting with reading to your children. Being read stories and reading for yourself helps with every aspect of your life and is a skill that everybody should have. Reading a book (or being read to) will help with speech and language, vocabulary and language skills. And that’s just the beginning in a wonderful world of books.
In our house we love books, and just love to read. For me, I grew up watching my mum reading and encouraging us to read, it is something that has always stuck with me and have seen the benefits and enjoyment of it in children when they learn to do it themselves. We have an ever-expanding library of books, paper and digital.
There will be lots of people that say they, or their kids don’t like to read, I don’t believe that to be true – I believe they just haven’t found the right book to spark that interest. It might take some time to find what you really like but there will be something. I think Dr. Suess summed it up pretty well:
“THE MORE THAT YOU READ, THE MORE THINGS YOU WILL KNOW. THE MORE THAT YOU LEARN, THE MORE PLACES YOU’LL GO.” – DR. SEUSS
Now, as I have already said, we love books and have lots. But the kids have really grasped the idea of book box sets / series and it is really encouraging them to read a lot more (the ten year old is currently working her way through the Lemony Snicket A Series of Unfortunate Events books – a series of thirteen books which she is absolutely enjoying and loving telling us and her teachers about what is happening in them). As for the twelve year old, she is devouring and savouring young adult dystopian fiction novels and series like they are about to disappear forever.
With so many books to choose from, where do you start? To encourage children to read more, building their own reading library at home and have easily accessible books for them to pick up and read can do wonders for developing that reading interest. For kids to find the genre or stories that really grab them to build their reading library we think that you can’t go wrong with Books2Door.com. Books2Door have been delivering books at bargain prices since 2004! With books starting at less £1 or less you can’t go wrong and won’t spend a fortune on trying new genres, authors or experimenting with different books to find the books that suit you, your interests and reading styles.
Books2Door off a large variety of brand new book box sets as well as individual books to start your children off on their reading journey and to continue their reading habits year after year.
When children are learning to read there is the Biff, Chip and Kipper box set, a massive 24 phonics book set for only £27.99 (saving 76% off the RRP of £117.76).
As they progress and start to read more independently there is The Usborne Reading Collection for Confident Readers, featuring 40 books for only £26.90 (saving you an eye-watering 86% off the £159.60 full RRP). We are currently reading Lemony Snicket, but The Treehouse Series by Andy Griffiths & Terry Denton is one that we have earmarked next, or maybe you would prefer stories from the master storyteller himself, Roald Dahl.
Once the kids hit those dreaded teenage years, tastes will have changed and books such as The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins or The Maze Runner series by James Dashner will appeal. We have just started on the Three Dark Crowns series by Kendare Blake – a YA fantasy series over 5 books following three queens “in every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. When they turn 16, they must fight for the crown. The last queen standing gets the crown!”
Above are just a small sample of fantastic book box sets that Books2Door offer for readers of all ages at very pocket-friendly budget prices (saving you up to 80% of RRP). They are all book sets that deliver works of fiction that will entertain and let your imagination loose. But Book2Door also offer plenty of non-fiction books to educate and engage with, from cookbooks to quiz books and biographies to science.

As well as the enjoyment of some great stories, we also love knowledge and facts. As well as the fabulous Three Dark Crowns box set that we received from Books2Door from their young adult (YA) section, we also received the QI Book of General Ignorance by John Lloyd and John Mitchinson – a three book set from their non-fiction selection. Everybody knows that Henry VIII had six wives, you probably learned the rhyme “divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived”, but in this set of books you will learn why that’s not strictly true and lots more about everything you think you know is wrong.
As you can probably already tell, we are delighted with Books2Door. Not only are their prices excellent but they offer thousands of books covering a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books for babies to adult readers (including all kids favourites such as Peppa Pig, Disney, LEGO, Minecraft, Star Wars and more).
