How it Began
The Book Taster was founded by Jenna, who, whilst juggling motherhood, being a Primary School Teacher & Military Wife was devouring books at a rate of knots! Jenna set up The Book Taster when she was unable to find a one-off bookish gift box for a friend who needed a little ‘pick me up’. When unable to find anything on the market, Jenna curated her own box which was warmly received. Repeating this a few times and not only enjoying the process but how the gift went down- the idea of ‘The Book Taster’ was born.
An advocate of self-care for all, Jenna set about curating the ‘Book Tasting Boxes’ you see today, to enable others to spread the message of ‘self-care’ and have find alternative, longer lasting gift than that of sending flowers! As they say, a book is a gift you can open time and time again after all!
Jenna runs the company from her home in the South West, where she lives with her husband, energetic two year old daughter and TV watching dog, Hector.
