Every Friday, we publish three new reviews (only books we really recommend) and offer suggestions for Ideal Accompaniments. Where else do you get such personalised service?

Three new tips, across all genres, right to your inbox.

And who knows? You might discover your next tipple.

Here’s a few I prepared earlier.


Behind Closed Doors – Swiss wine, cheese and murder



Raw Material – beer, Welsh rarebit and dodgy dealings in the dark.



Tapas, Rioja and a dirty secret in Vitoria.



Greek salad, ouzo and revenge on a cruise ship.



Hamburger, beer, hooch and a husky (well, nearly). Spot the pug.


Whatever your tipple, snack or earworm of choice, enjoy the reading experience to the full.

We do.
