Book Club FAQ

How do I pay?
You’ll get an invoice four times a year (you pay for 3 months at a time). Monthly fee is fixed and delivery is free. All categories are 130:-/month (except History/Biographies 160:-).

What if I want to leave the club?
No worries; you can unsubscribe at any time and you’re ­always welcome back later.

Can I give a subscription as a gift to someone?
Sure you can (and what a nice giver you are!). You can gift an on-going subscription, or time-limit it to 3, 6, 9, 12 months.

What if I’ve already read the book?
You are a frequent reader! Did you like the book? Perhaps it would make a great gift for someone else. Or just send it back to us unread (return postage is on you though). The risk that you’ve already read the book is rather slim though…

This sounds dangerous, like a literary Russian roulette!
No need to worry, there’s no risk of bloodshed. The risk of discovering new favourite authors is higher though… We like to call it – literary serendipity!

But I live nearby, there’s no need to send me the books…
Howdy neighbour! Then we have another suggestion for you; drop by the shop and buy a Book Club Card! Each card is valid for 3 months worth of Book of the Month (or 3 books right off the bat). Get the card for the fiction categories, and you can choose freely from any of the nine fiction categories of the month. Or get the non-fiction card which lets you choose the non-fiction category as well. (Oh, and it’s the perfect gift for a friend living locally!).

I don’t even live in Sweden!
No need to worry, we’ll send you the book anywhere in the Nordic countries and rest of Europe for a slightly higher monthly fee, SEK 185:- (except Non-Fiction which is SEK 215:-). Invoiced quarterly as usual.

Enough talk already, how do I sign up?

Pick your book club category

General Fiction: a new, hand-picked novel by an English language writer. Something you haven’t heard of but probably will...

British Crime picks are usually, but not always, British, in the vein of Agatha Christie. Not too bloody or psychologi­cal, sometimes set in an historical setting.

Tough Crime or ’noir’ picks are often American, but again not always. These are gritty, terse novels about the dark under­belly of society.

Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Fantasy and Sci-Fi categories! Here you will find new voices in alternate world writing.

Teen and Young Adult for the young reader. Young in years, or young of heart. 

Classics are classics for a reason. (Re)discover the treasures of English classics. We will most often read the non-standard classics.

Short Stories – collections of big stories in a small format. Perfect for the commute and busy schedule.

Non-Fiction (History/Biographies) is the category for the investigative and curious mind.

All book club categories are 130:-/month
(except Non-Fiction (History/Biography) which is 160:-).

And delivery is free.
