Introducing our new online Book Club. This was in our plans for the later in the year, but we think people may benefit from it now more than ever. See what it's all about below!
Each month, members will be able to vote on a selection of Mystery Books, with the winning title being distributed to all members.
Please note, for speed and to keep costs low, these will not be wrapped and illustrated as standard.
Live Group Discussion
All members will be invited to join a group video call (though you may turn off your camera if you prefer!), led by a one of the How Novel team. Members will be able to contribute, pose questions and listen to the views of others.
Members will be able to interact with one another throughout the month, to discuss the book and stay connected. The forum will be in-house on our website, accompanied by social media discussions!
Automatically renews monthly. Cancel anytime. Additional delivery charges apply.
How it Works
Please note: these timings will be shortened somewhat during our first month as we have launched mid-cycle.
Once you sign up, you will be sent an email with instructions of how to access our online forum. Your membership will renew on the 15th of each month which coincides with our reading cycles!
On the 15th of each month, voting begins. There will be a selection of books on the forum and you just have to choose your favourite. The one with the most votes will be our book for that month!
The vote will close a few days later (specifics will be on the voting page) and books will begin to be dispatched to all members. Your only job now is to get reading!
Now is the really fun part- talking about the book! All month you will have the opportunity to contribute to our forum with the discussion ending with a live group video call- see FAQs for more details!
I am delighted and very pleased with your choice of books. Thank you for your help!

Frequently asked questions
Am I tied into a long contract?
When will I recieve my first book?
If you sign up prior to the 15th of the month, your membership will be start the same month. If you sign up after the 15th of the month, your membership will start the following month. If we have any stock remaining after the 15th, we will try and get you involved as soon as we can but can't guarentee this!
How do you decide the book each month?
We ask you! After we have curated a list of titles that we are love and are confident we can supply in large quantities, we put them to a vote and the book with the most votes becomes the choice for that month!
When will the book be delivered?
What if I opted for 'Access Only'?
Members may choose to opt for the 'Access Only'. This means they are still a full member of the Book Club, but we will not send the book out to them. Instead, they can purchase the book themselves- perfect for ebook readers or international members. With that said, in the vast majority of cases, it is often cheaper for you to have us send the book to you even with delivery fees taken into consideration.
Can I refer a friend?
What if I already have the book?
You'll be ahead of the game! Remember your membership fee covers more than just the book, it grants you access to the forum and group discussions. Perhaps, especially in this time of need, you could pay it forward? Maybe an isolated neighbour would appreciate the chance the read a new book?
When is the group discussion?
Currently, the plan is to make it the second Sunday of each month, likely in the evening. This is based on the responses of those who registered their interest prior to our lauch but it may change depending on the preferences of our founding members. Depending on the number of members who sign up, we may run more than one discussion at different times.
How do I access the forum?
You will be sent an email within 24 hours of signing up with details of how to access the forum!
