Subscriptions are an amazing way to show someone you really care - they're ideal for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, or even as a treat for yourself!
When someone is interested in a subscription, we start with a consultation, either over the phone or in person. We talk about the kinds of books you or your beneficiary likes; which authors, genres, and titles. From there we curate a list of twelve titles chosen especially for you. We also find out when you'd like the subscription to start, and give you a printed card so that you have something to give the person you're buying the subscription for on the day, if it's a present.
After that, you don't have to do anything. We'll send you a gift-wrapped book once a month, every month, for a whole year. It's the gift that just keeps on giving. Literally.
Subscriptions we offer
Our subscriptions are hugely customised (that's the point!) but we start from the six base subscriptions listed below - it just helps us keep the price points standardised. If you'd like to discuss a subscription that falls outside any of these, just get in touch with the form below. We'll figure out a way to make it work!
QUEER AS FICTION

THE SOCIAL JUSTICE
