Book of the Month Subscriptions

Riverbend's best gift option: one new book each month. SIGN UP IN TWO EASY STEPS!


How it Works…

Here at Riverbend we encourage the support of independent, small businesses. What we offer that huge chains do not is our customer service and knowledge. Across all staff members we cover a vast majority of genres and we do our research! After asking a few select questions - such as favourite genres and authors and what you’ve recently read and loved - we are confident that we will know exactly what to recommend to our customers.

We wanted to be able to provide a tailored reading experience to our customers not only local, but far and wide! Thus, our Personalised Picks scheme was born. You select an option above, fill out the form, and let us do the rest!

Within the form you will find required information such as sender and receiver names and addresses, as well as the kind of subscription you are after — adult, young adult, or kids. The form will then ask whether the recipient enjoys fiction or non fiction, and then will ask more detailed questions like which genres they prefer and what they have recently read and loved.

If you choose our monthly payment option, we will require that you call the shop with your card details so that we can pop them in our secure EWAY server.


When is the book of the month sent?

We send the book as close to the 1st of every month. If you have chosen to be charged by month, that is when the payment will be taken out.

Will the recipient know who the book is from, and how will they know they’re subscribed?

With the first book we’ll include a ‘congratulations!’ card. It will tell them how many months they’re signed up for, and who the gift is from — you can ask for a personalised message to be sent via the form.

What happens at the end of the subscription?

We will send you an email to let you know when your last package is being send; we will ask for your feedback, and give you the option to resubscribe.

What if I or the recipient don’t like the book/s they have been sent?

We will include a card with details on how to send feedback. We want this experience to be as enjoyable as possible. The more we know about your tastes the better!
