Why should I subscribe to LoveMyRead, rather than buy books as and when I need them?
Over 600 books were released on Sept 3, 2020. That's a lot of choice. And we all live busy lives. So, LoveMyRead does the hard work for you. We curate the best books. In September, that means 600 down to 6.
We’ll provide guaranteed quality new releases, curated and delivered straight to your door every month on the day they hit shelves. Our subscriptions are designed with the aim of getting you excited about new releases. The more you love it, the better we’ve done.
How can I trust the titles you’ve chosen?
Our team works with all the major UK publishers and a huge array of independent publishers, searching the market for what we think are some of the most diverse, beautiful and wonderful new releases that month. Whilst we can’t promise you’ll love the book as much as we have, we’ll guarantee that all our titles are chosen with maximum care and attention.
When can I expect my book?
The release date of the book will determine the day you receive your LoveMyRead parcel. If the book is already out when you subscribe, we’ll get your chosen book in the post to you that same day.
Every month from then on, you’ll get the books the day they’re released to the public in stores, without having to leave your house!!
What if I don’t read a book every month?
We know a book a month may sound like a lot, so you can skip any month at any point and still get all the books that you’ve paid for when you want. Every month you’re asked if you want to skip this book or simply pause the subscription and start again when you’re ready. You’re in full control.
What else do I get other than a book?
We’ve packed the box full of things we think you’ll enjoy to make the experience as wonderful as possible. From time to time, we’ll partner with some amazing brands that we think you’ll love… so expect a surprise or two alongside your wonderful read.
Is it a hop, skip and a jump to cancel?
While we hope you don’t go, we’re here to make life better for you, not worse.
As well as the ability to skip a month, if you decide this really isn’t for you, just cancel via your membership dashboard on our website or send us an email at [email protected] and we’ll sort out whatever you need.
Cancellations via the membership dashboard can only be made in the last month of the current subscription.
What if I don’t like any of the choices
While we work extremely hard to pick books we think you’ll love, if the time comes and you really don’t like any the picks, you can always browse our shop which includes previous month’s choices as well as some outstanding classics from our curators.
It’s past the publication date and I haven’t got my book yet
As much as we try, we know deliveries sometimes go wrong. Email us at
[email protected] and a member of our team will help you out ASAP.
Can I have a subscription for myself as well as buy a gift for someone else?
Absolutely. You can have as many active subscriptions as you’d like. Manage them all from the convenience of one account.
Can my Bookclub sign up?
We love bookclubs! Have the leader of the bookclub to get in touch, tell us how many people there are in your club and we will send you a discount code for everyone to use. Each person will need to sign up individually so they can manage their own accounts. Then each month, when we release the books, you decide amongst yourselves which book to get and we will pop them in the post to you! Visit our Bookclubs page to find out more about signing up as a group.
What is your stance on plastic and recycling?
Our stance on plastic and recycling is unequivocal: we’ve worked really hard to make sure there’s no single use plastic in our boxes and that every box can be recycled.
What kinds of books do you choose?
It’s really important to us that we champion a range of authors, from the really well known to the debut author or unknown writer. We champion writers of all colours and backgrounds. For us, all that matters is that we present to you books that are really good reads. And by ‘good’, we definitely don’t mean ‘difficult’!
Are your children’s books meant to be read to a child or read by them?
The books will always be age appropriate to the age category. There will be a variety of books that are suitable for reading to children, reading with children, reading aloud or for children to read alone. The beauty of the LoveMyRead team is we will have done the hard work for you in identifying these, and will recommend what read each book sits in. We will always value your feedback though.
What if my child can’t read the books you send?
Don’t worry! We know that children's' reading skills develop at different stages. We don’t send books to test literacy skills - we want children to enjoy the books. Children will get as much out of the books if they listen to you sharing the story with them as they would if they read it by themselves.
Can I choose what Children’s book I get sent?
Afraid not. Each month everyone in each age bracket for children subscription is sent the same book. This means the child will get to try a wide range of books, genres and authors, and if they have a friend who also has a subscription in the same age group, they will be able to talk about the same book each month!
You can of course, always visit our shop and buy other books individually.
Do you make different selections for different genders in the Children’s subscription boxes?
No everyone in the same age receives the same book regardless of gender. Our curation team are careful to select books which appeal to to all children are reflective of the modern world we live in.
What if I already have the book you send?
We will be sending you books that are brand new so hopefully it won’t be one you already own, but if it is please let us know as soon as possible.
My Child is now in a different age group does it automatically send them the next category or do I have to let you know?
When this happens, please let us know at [email protected] and we will change the age category they receive. We might also pop a little celebration in the post too.
