Why amazing books stay undiscovered
Approximately 200,000 titles are published every year in the UK. Just 17% of these are lucky enough to get a decent marketing budget and make it to the ‘Bestsellers’ List created via the media and in bookstores.
Among the other 83% are many amazing books and new authors that get squeezed out of sight in the marketing blitz of the selected known bestsellers. And there they stay...undiscovered.
How do we change that?
So how does one discover these hidden gems that typically rely on strong word of mouth to get referred?
We curate titles that have sold in decent numbers. We then hand over the job to our Algorithm, which combines reviews from leading book forums, rankings on websites, critic reviews, blogs and sales figures from publishers, to create boxes that are guaranteed to delight a book lover. We have developed the capability to combine seemingly unrelated titles from across multiple publishers and genres into meaningful boxes.
Every Box is a new story
Unlike subscription websites that have a pre-decided box of 1 or 2 books, selected by their editors every month, we have absolutely no idea what our algorithm is going to put together for the next order it receives.
Every time you open a box you will discover an author or a book that you might not have otherwise come across or selected. We hope that once you read them and love them, you will then spread the word, so that more book lovers can discover these authors and their stories.
Paying it Forward
We like to think we’re creating a big happy circle. That’s why we give a percentage of our profits to charities working for literacy, so we can all keep spreading the joy of reading across the globe.
You can choose any box from our range, including our new genre boxes
Subscribe to our book subscription to save 5%, and receive four books every 1 or 2 months. Pause or cancel anytime. Simple as that!
You can start saving now and still get a box of 4 amazing books with an average of 4-5* rating
I just started reading my first book today and I am thoroughly enjoying it! The best thing about this subscription (besides the excellent value for money) is that it enables you to try books that you would never usually pick for yourself. I would highly recommend this service!
Brilliant just what I need in my life!
A monthly dose of quality books picked at random which intensified the satisfaction as the fact I don’t know what each box will bring is a real thing of beauty- it’s like having a secret friend that treats me with a box of stories some fact some fiction that I enjoy immensely

I ordered on the 21st of December, and the box came in time for Christmas. Mind you, it was a present for me so it wouldn’t have mattered! The books were recent and also I’d heard of two of the authors which I hadn’t expected! Emma Donoghue for example. Very pleased with the selection, and they are all books that I definitely will read although obviously I can’t say yet whether I will enjoy them! Easy to use website, quick delivery, great idea.

My mum loved the selection and has nearly finished the first book already

I'm so happy with my box of books this month! I was sceptical at first but I'm really excited to read these. Thank you :)
Absolutely love the surprise of the books every time I receive a box. I never know what sort of thing I’d like to read so this company make it easy for me! Love discovering new authors and genres.
