We’re book people. When we’re seeking guidance, information and insight, we turn to books. In 2020, we set a goal to read more widely, to amplify diverse voices and support inclusive publishing.

If you would like to do the same, this is the subscription for you. Over the course of six months, we will send you three fiction and three non-fiction books that have moved, enlightened or challenged us.

We acknowledge that being able to educate ourselves about racism, rather than experiencing it, is a privilege. This is where we want to start, but it’s not where we’re going to stop.

10% of each subscription purchase will be donated to Intercultural Youth Scotland who work to broaden horizons and offer direct, specialist support and vital pathways for Scottish intercultural young people who face barriers to success.

Price includes UK postage. 


We work hard to ensure that you will be happy with your order when it arrives. We are here to help if you have any concerns or questions. If there is a problem with your order, please contact us on books@mainstreetbooks.co.uk as a first step and we will do everything we can to fix it. 

If you have received incorrect or faulty goods, we will be happy to replace or refund the items in question. Please contact us as soon as possible after receiving your order to discuss any issues with a member of our team.

International Delivery

Due to the complexities surrounding the import and export of products as a result of the UK leaving the EU, we have made the difficult decision to suspend international deliveries. We will continue to work towards a solution, and hope to offer international deliveries again soon.
