Books from your favorite indie, delivered right to your door! Our book-a-month club features newly released titles chosen by your favorite shop staffers. Annie, Ashley, Chris, and Kate have selected their favorite new book titles for each month, and you can have one shipped to you!
Members can sign up for 1, 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions; just let us know which staffer your tastes are most like -- or ask us to surprise you! For example, select Annie's subscription, and you'll receive Annie's choices each month. Request a surprise box, and we'll keep your personal tastes in mind when sending one of that month's staff's selections your way.
Our Shelf Subscriptions are perfect for readers who want to broaden their literary horizons, or for book lovers who want to eliminate "decision fatigue" and let us pick their next book!
here's what you can expect...
If you follow our shop podcast, you know Annie loves literary fiction featuring strong female protagonists. Her monthly selections lean toward strong, literary voices -- including some titles you've probably already heard discussed on air.
Our events manager loves well-written memoirs and nonfiction books about personal development and individual well-being. Her monthly selections will feature bestselling nonfiction and books you've had on your TBR list.
Kate's selections consist of historical fiction and compelling nonfiction, with a focus on world-building and mesmerizing characters. You'll recognize a few of the authors she's got on her list. Her monthly picks are great for book clubs and deeper discussion.
You'll get big-name authors of literary fiction from Chris, but don't expect strict realism. While Annie's picks may favor contemporary family drama, Chris's will skew toward the supernatural, but in a way that still feels "normal." Mostly.
Teacher? Librarian? Mom? Kid lit fan? Actual kid?
We're kicking off our monthly shelf subscription featuring newly released children's picture books, middle grade novels, and YA selections. As with our adult shelf subscriptions, The Bookshelf staff will pick their favorite children's titles each month and ship them straight to your door. There are three subscription options for kids and kids-at-heart: Picture Book (for preschool and early elementary readers), Children's Chapter (for middle grade readers), and Young Adult (for teens and YA enthusiasts).
