A Book Hive Year

What’s better than receiving a book in the post?
Receiving twelve books in the post.

The Book Hive Year is our book subscription service. We hand-pick one book, every month, for a year – and post each title straight to the door of the lucky recipient. Be it for yourself or as an immensely thoughtful present, we’ll personalise our selection based on the reader’s interests, tastes, likes and dislikes.

Once you’ve placed your order, you (or the recipient) will be asked to fill out a brief survey about your current reading habits. When we’ve got your filled-in form back, your subscription begins – and the first thing you will receive is your very own beautiful canvas Book Hive bag, perfect for carrying around your year’s worth of books!

We have several different subscription options to choose from (just use the drop-down menu above) – you can select an age range, then tailor and tweak both format and content, from hardback non-fiction to paperback fiction in translation.

If none of the packages in our drop-down list suit you or the person you are buying for (for example, someone may want a cook book subscription or a nature book collection, or a very specific genre of fiction, or only want books for six months) just let us know and we will design a customised package for you.
