How do book subscriptions at Readings work?

Simply scroll to the bottom of this page to select your preferred option for each subscription, and then add to your shopping cart to purchase. The lucky recipient (or yourself!) will then receive a hand-selected, gift-wrapped book in the post each month.

If the subscription is a gift, the recipient 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.

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 Kids, Fiction and Nonfiction Book Subscriptions.
