About Us

Vicky and the team

We are a family of five with a love of reading and books. We are passionate about helping provide that opportunity for others, whilst also developing sustainable living habits. We have a support team in place to bring used book boxes to you and help more families make environmentally conscious purchases a reality.

Bookstainable has been set up to ensure books are not sitting on shelves but being used, loved and read. We aim to source used books that are in good or excellent condition so when a child receives their box, its looks as close as possible to a new book.

Having worked in the education system and a national literacy charity, we have had experience of the number of children that don't get the same reading opportunities and feel strongly about supporting young people that are struggling or reluctant readers. That's why for every purchase through the site, we will donate 5% of the price to our chosen charity, Coram Beanstalk.


We will even include a donation card in the package so your young ones and the family can celebrate that by purchasing a book box with us, you have helped provide support for those struggling with their reading here in the UK.
