Can I buy a subscription as a gift for someone?

Yes absolutely. A lot of our current members have been gifted their subscriptions. When signing up all you need to do is put the details of the person you are gifting it to into the shipping details.   If you would like the first book to arrive around a certain date and a short message included with the first book please put this in the notes of your order and we will do our best to accommodate this.


When will I receive my first book?

You should receive your first book shortly after signing up.  Books will be despatched around the middle of each month.  In the unlikely event that we experience any technical or unforeseen shipping issues that might delay books being delivered you might receive two books in the one month.


Will I like the books?

Joining the random book club will bring you books that you might never have thought of reading. We hope you enjoy and learn from all the books you receive but remember it is totally random so we can’t act on any complaints about books that you don’t enjoy.


Will my subscription automatically renew?
