-YourShelf- is the curated book subscription service for bona fide book lovers, run by fellow fanatics. We provide our subscribers with regular bundles of quality books, specifically selected for them by our team of curators based on their preferences, books that they have read previously, and genres or authors that they want to try. We also love terrible puns, but that's not part of our business model. It's just a huge perk.
How does it work?
It's easy. Sign up, answer some questions, and pay for a bundle. We'll send you three hand-picked books, tied with a bow, and a note from our curators explaining why we've selected these books for you. You can order a bundle every other month, every month, every eleven days - whatever floats your boat. You're the master of your own readerly destiny.
Why should you bother?
You work hard to earn your money and you don't want to part with it for no good reason. But if you're like us, and you love to read and to buy books, this service is definitely an investment. We aim to provide you with books that you like, or books that you might never even think to buy, and above all books that we don't think you should have to live without. It can be so time-consuming to browse for worthy reads, in store and online; and there's nothing worse than shelling out your cash for a book that you don't like or never read. -YourShelf- is the solution.
How can I keep up to date with your offers, bundles, and curators?
Lucky for you, we are on both Twitter and Instagram (@_yourshelf_). Join in the fun by using the nifty lil' hashtag #YourShelf. We run lots of competitions on social media too, so be sure you're not missing out on a chance to get some AMAZING FREE BOOKS. That's the dream, folks.
What is the cost for -YourShelf- subscriptions?
Most -YourShelf- bundles costs £30, although we often have flash sales and unexpected discounts - so make sure to check every month! Postage is included in the £30 for UK customers only (see below).
Where is -YourShelf- available?
We are now accepting sign-ups from five countries: UK, ROI, Germany, Canada, and the US. Outside of the UK, customers will incur some minor additional postage charges; an additional £12.50 shipping charge will apply to all orders going to ROI, a £15 charge to Germany, and a £17.50 charge to USA/Canada. If you would like to see your country added to the list, let us know!
What if I want to return a book?
We don't accept returns. By placing your order, you agree to receive three books as selected by our curators. In the unlikely event that your books arrive damaged, or you believe we've really messed something up, please email email@example.com as soon as possible.
If I'm too busy to fill in a complete reader's profile, can I get a random bundle sent to me every month instead?
Yes you absolutely can (we'll do anything for your money). Just sign up, leave your reading info blank and pop a request in the 'Notes' box at the bottom. We'll take it from there!
What about my data?
Your data will never be shared with anyone outside of -YourShelf-. We only use your data for the purpose of curating your books and sending them to you. Additional data, like your social media handles, are only for us to get a better idea of your bookish needs when we're stuck for that last good book. Additional data is always optional - including your birthday, which we only ask for in case we ever want to send you a little birthday present...
Isn't the FAQ a tired format for relaying information?
I don't know about that - but it's definitely a tried format. And that's all that matters to us.
