Who are we?
The Bookish Mindset is a book subscription service that offers a diverse range of books written by women. Packed with feminist icons of the literary world, our subscriptions are flexible so that you can tailor them each month to create a truly unique reading experience.
Each month we provide a new offering to include a fiction book accompanied by gifts from small businesses. You can choose to de-select the gifts if you prefer, we understand book only subscriptions are perfect for those on a budget. You may also add in a non-fiction book from our pre-selected favourites to your package too. Or maybe swap the fiction for a non-fiction!
We know everyone reads differently so we want to keep our offering as flexible as possible which in turn makes it easy for you. You can change up your subscription each month depending on your budget and reading preference.
Representation matters to us and we know it matters to you too. We are feminists and believe wholeheartedly in the need for feminism to be intersectional. It's at the heart of everything we do - our boxes are curated with this in mind and we aim to be as diverse and inclusive as possible with both our authors and small business owners.
Supporting independent bookshops and small businesses are also incredibly important to us. We buy all of our books through a local bookshop and all gifts are bought through small businesses. Our tea is from Bird & Blend who both make great tea and are great for the planet - they're now a B Corp!
How does it work?
Each month runs on the following schedule:
1st of each month - Our new fiction book and gifts are revealed. Any changes to our non-fiction list of books are updated too. This is released live on Instagram and to our email list.
7th of each month - Monthly subscription charge is taken. This gives you time to change your subscription if required.
14th of each month - Your box will be sent out! All boxes are sent out by Royal Mail 2nd Class.
You can subscribe at any time in the month and will be charged on the date you sign up, for following months you will be charge on the 7th. There is no minimum contract with any of our subscriptions.
Boxes are also available without a subscription at no extra cost.
How did it begin?
The Bookish Mindset began as a page on Instagram during the pandemic in 2020. Owner Nikki had been a bookworm from a young age and was over the moon to find the incredible bookish community that the app offers. Sharing recommendations and helping women find incredible books was always her passion.
It wasn’t until February the following year that The Bookish Mindset became what you know it as today – a book subscription service focussing on the diverse writings of incredible women, that supports an independent bookshop and small businesses from across the UK.
The goal never changed between a simple Instagram account and the business you now know; our goal remains to provide brilliant books and beautifully curated boxes to treat yourself and loved ones with, all whilst sharing incredible diverse authors and businesses with you. The company is growing from strength to strength, with customer feedback and our new direction we’re glad to have you on the journey with us.
