Book Subscriptions

The Readings Book Subscriptions are the perfect gift. Receive a book in the post every month, handpicked by our experts, and delivered straight to you or your lucky recipient. The subscriptions are available for purchase exclusively from the Readings online store.

‘When I was little, one of my father’s ex-colleagues would send me, unannounced, a book. He had a bookseller select the book for him and they were always perfect; it gave me immense pleasure to receive that special parcel each month. When I had grandchildren I wanted to do the same thing for them and I turned to our marvellous and award-winning children’s booksellers to guide me. Now with the Readings Kids' Book Subscription, that service and advice is available for the little people in your life.’

Mark Rubbo, Chair of Readings

How do book subscriptions at Readings work?

  1. Choose your subscription from the options below. Each subscription stream has the option for either 6 or 11 months.
  2. Personalise your first card for the lucky recipient. Each new subscriber will receive a welcome card, with the option of a personalised handwritten message. To personalise your card, please include your desired message in the ‘notes’ box on the check out page.
  3. Send it around the world with our promise to post both locally and internationally. For international shipments, please purchase the regular subscription, and our staff will contact you to arrange the additional shipping costs.

To receive the current month’s book, you must place your order by the first Monday of this month. Any orders placed after the first Monday will have their subscription commence in the following month.

Please note, we do not post out a book in January for our Picture Book, Fiction and Crime Book Subscriptions.
