After a year of uncertainty and anxiety around how the pandemic might affect their second-hand bookshop in Hornsby, Tanya and her father Gerard’s shop The Bookplate has been fortunate to remain open and operating. The father-daughter team have worked tirelessly to keep their bookshop in service for the many dedicated readers who call the little book sanctuary their second home.
With the stimulus and safety net from the government now over, it is time once again for the family duo to think outside the box to keep the doors of their bookshop open. During the turmoil of 2020, Personality-Based Book Bundles were born – book bundles based on your answers to a short personality quiz.
Tanya and Gerard have once again come up with another genius idea that will allow us to connect with each other and send messages of love, gratitude and care in a unique and innovative way. The Bookplate’s newest venture, Book-quet Bundles, gives you the option of sending a Personality-Based Book Bundle to a friend or loved one.
All you need to do is answer a simple personality quiz about them. Tanya and her father will then be able to personalise a book-quet of 5–7 books and it will be delivered to your loved one’s doorstep, Australia-wide, for just $50. The book-quet will be wrapped beautifully and delivered with your (optional) personalised message and a whole lot of love attached.
Show someone how much you love them and help keep this wonderful bookshop alive! Just complete the quiz at this link and follow the prompts. Before your very eyes, a magical bundle of books, wrapped up in love, will appear at the doorstep of the one you love.
