The Random Book Club

Are you sitting uncomfortably? It’s time to leave your literary comfort zone and join the Random Book Club. Sit back and enjoy a book, hand-picked entirely at random from the shelves of Scotland’s largest second-hand bookshop, delivered with a dull thud, right to your door.

Sign up and we’ll send you a book once a month from our shop, the largest second-hand bookshop in Scotland. And with an element of surprise; you won’t have any idea what it’s going to be until it arrives. Or even if it will arrive at all.

Every book you receive will be selected by the owner of The Bookshop, Shaun Bythell.  Books will be a mixture of fiction and non-fiction; paperback and hardback. And, of course, you get to keep the books.

No matter where you are in the world you can treat yourself to a year’s subscription to the RBC starting from just £69, or gift a subscription to a fellow book lover.



“This is the best idea I’ve seen for ages. I love just holding a book and trying to guess what lies within, I’m usually wrong! But hey, life is for reading. I’m looking forward to receiving my books.”
