How does it work?

Step One: Subscribe

Sign up to a rolling monthly subscription, or choose a 3-month or 6-month option. 

You will get a specially selected book plus some extra gifts in each box. Boxes are currently only available in the UK (but we hope to offer an international option soon).

Step Two: Your box arrives

We ship boxes at the beginning of every month, so you are sure to receive it by the 5th. If you order before the 15th of any month, you will be in time for the next box. And we’ve made the boxes small enough to fit through most letterboxes, so there will be minimal delay in getting them to you or your gift recipient.

Step Three: Get reading

Inside each box will be a surprise novel or collection of stories selected by our expert booksellers, as well as some special gifts. By ordering the London Review Book Box, you will be supporting independent booksellers, expanding your horizons and adding some indispensable weight to your bookshelves.

About the London Review Book Box

Each month you’ll receive a surprise recommended novel as well as a few gifts specially selected by the booksellers at the London Review Bookshop in Bloomsbury. We’ll only send you books we love, books that we think deserve a wider audience and that reflect the diverse range on our shelves at the Bookshop.


Treat yourself or someone else to a 3 or 6-month subscription, or one of our exclusive seasonally themed one-off boxes.

What a great idea from @LRB - a monthly surprise book chosen by their bookstore staff. I've just signed up to @LRBBookBox.

What a great present idea - a new #book every month and book gifts from @LRBBookBox.
