Daunt Books Subscriptions | Daunt Books

The Daunt Books Subscription is the perfect gift for book-lovers.

How it works

Subscriptions can be purchased online, in the shop or over the phone. The buyer can pick a first book with the help of one our booksellers, or begin with an introductory card which explains how the subscription works.


The subscriber is invited to consult with one of our booksellers, to help us curate the books they will receive. They can get in touch via email or telephone, or by dropping in to any of our shops.


The subscriber receives a beautifully wrapped new book every month.

What does the subscriber receive?

The subscriber will receive a card with their first book, which explains how the subscription works; they will be encouraged to get in touch to discuss their reading preferences. They will then receive a book every month.

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes, we send book subscriptions to every continent on the planet! Postage to Europe is an additional £32 for paperback, or £42 for hardback; postage to the rest of the world (including the US) is £62 for paperback, or £72 for hardback.

What if the subscriber has already read one of the books?

The subscriber can swap the book in any of our shops, or return it via mail.

I want to give the first book as a gift in person.

You can choose for the first book to be sent to the buyer, rather than the subscriber, at checkout. This way, you can give the first book and card in person. Subsequent books will be sent to the subscriber’s address.

Can the subscriber talk to someone about their preferences?

Absolutely! The subscriber can call whenever they’d like to discuss what books they enjoy and how they think the subscription is going. Our contact details will be on the card that we send.


Your choice of history, politics, memoir, business, nature, travel and more.
