Whether it’s analyses of Roman history or authoritative World War One tomes, or biopgraphies and memoirs of some of the most interesting people, we’ll find the perfect book in these areas for the recipients of this gift. When you subscribe we’ll ask a few questions as part of the ordering process so that we can tailor our selections and we’ll ask for feedback when we send out the first book so that we can make sure that we’re making suitable selections. We promise no celebrity specials!

When you order this subscription option, each month we’ll carefully choose a suitable book taking into account the information you’ve given us about the reader’s tastes.  It will be sent out, beautifully wrapped.  With the first book we enclose a slip asking for feedback so that we can glean more about the recipient’s tastes which will help us customise our future choices.  Obviously, props shown in the photographs are not included and although the packaging shown is indicative, it may vary.

  • Contemporary Fiction (paperback)

    For years, we’ve read voraciously, assessing new fiction titles to see if they would work in our bookshop and now for Glenogle & Bell. That experience means that our contemporary fiction package is perfect for the bookworm in your life. We’ll send them highly anticipated debut novels, eagerly awaited new titles from award-winning writers and overlooked gems that we think deserve a wider readership. By sending a postcard asking for feedback with the first book we’ll be able to tailor our choices more closely to the reader’s tastes.

    We offer this as a paperback or hardback option.
