Reading Is a Lifestyle Subscription


If you…

  • Enjoy reading physical books,
  • Want to diversify your bookshelf,
  • Want to be introduced to books that aren’t necessarily “trending” in the media,
  • And want access to private virtual conversations with authors, then you’ll love our new Reading Is a Lifestyle subscription!

How does it work? First, tell us what kind of books you’re open to reading (see below) then purchase your subscription. During the first full week of each month, we will drop off, deliver, or ship you a new Adult Hardcover book that fits one or more of the categories you select.

But… you won’t know what book you’re getting each month until you receive it. It’s like getting a surprise birthday gift from yourself to yourself every month.

And there’s more… You will get access to an exclusive monthly virtual hang out (not a book club) where you’ll have the opportunity to converse with authors, as well as listen and share your thoughts about the book you received with other members who may or may not have received the same book that you did. Check out what some of our current members are saying.

When will I be billed? You will be billed on the 15th of every month for the RIAL subscription, the cost of your preferred delivery method (choose at checkout), and any applicable sales tax. This is a self-managed subscription, which means that you can pause or cancel your RIAL membership at any time. Therefore, it is imperative that you register or login to your Shelves account during your initial enrollment. Please note that recurring payments will not be refunded. All sales are final.
