Diverse Voices


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 a selected charity at the end of each year.

Can I send this as a gift?

Yes, of course! Simply enter the recipient’s details in the Delivery Details section when you go through the checkout.

What will you send to the recipient?

We will send a card explaining the Subscription along with a Reading Questionnaire (for A Year of Books, Select Six and Three Months Subscriptions) with your gift message (if you’ve included one). They will then receive a beautifully wrapped book from us each month for the duration of their Subscription.

What if I want the card sent to me to gift to someone myself?

That’s not a problem at all, we can send everything to you. Just let us know in the Order Notes that it’s a gift and we’ll make a note of it.

What happens if you send a book that the recipient has already read?

If at any point during a Book Subscription we send a book that the recipient has already read, they need only get in touch with us and we will arrange a replacement.

When will the recipient get their first book?

We send out books for A Year of Books, Select Six and Three Months Subscriptions in the second week of the month and the final week of the month for Diverse Voices, Fiction in Translation, Environmental and Cookery Subscriptions.

Can Reading Questionnaires be completed online? 

Yes. The Adult Reading Questionnaire and Children’s Reading Questionnaire can be completed online.
