Independent Bookselling for Independent Minds
Cogito Book Subscription
Nothing quite beats the thrill of receiving a parcel - especially when it contains a beautiful new book, expertly selected just for you.
It's always a highlight to hear how much pleasure it has given our customers to discover a little piece of Cogito on their doormat, lovingly wrapped in brown paper.
Now you can give that experience to the bibliophile in your life (or treat yourself) via our newly launched book subscription service.
Starting with a cosy chat over the phone to explore the recipient’s reading habits and interests, we will then tailor a series of book deliveries perfectly to their taste. With a vast, constantly evolving selection of books at their fingertips, our experienced booksellers can be sure to reveal some hidden gems and introduce new authors – many of whom may become future favourites.
To get you started, we’ve put together a couple of options:
A Year in Books
A wonderfully indulgent gift for anyone who loves books – whether they are a voracious reader already or keen to find their way back in. With friendly conversations over the phone both at the start of your experience and midway through the year, it's the ultimate bespoke experience. During our second chat, we can compare notes on the books you have received already and shape ideas for your next instalments.
You will receive a book a month, eleven months of the year, with two telephone consultations to uncover your reading preferences. The Year in Books experience is priced at £160.
Six Months in Books
Just as delightful as the year-long experience, our six-month subscription begins with a phone call, giving us a chance to talk books and discover the recipient’s interests. They may be keen to expand their reading horizons, trying new authors or genres, in which case, we can always help! We also know that a good book can be the best comfort blanket there is – and we have books for every occasion.
We will send a thoughtfully-chosen book to the recipient once a month for six months – and we hope they will get as much pleasure from receiving the books as we do from selecting them.
Six Months in Books is priced at £90.
We can’t wait to share a little piece of Cogito with our subscribers each month!
