How Page 1 Books Subscriptions Work

Getting books chosen just for you delivered to your door each month couldn't be easier!

1. Just choose the length of your subscription and fill out the questions here and tell us as much as you can about your book-related likes, dislikes, desires, hopes, and dreams! Include a link to your Goodreads profile, if you have one!

2. We take that information and do our magical literary matchmaking and send you a book chosen just for you, beautifully wrapped, with a special little literary treat!

3. Write to us and let us know your thoughts about the pick and we will continually update your profile to refine our choices for you! AND if you already have the book we sent or don't think it's a good fit, no problem! We will send you a replacement at no cost!

It's like Stitch Fix, but for books!

About Us

Page 1 is run by owner Michele Jackson and a team of "literary matchmakers." We review your reading preferences and select books based on the information you give us. We don't see you every week. You can't stop by to browse our shelves and chat on your lunch hour., but we will learn your book tastes as if you do.

No one knows what you like better than you. Except maybe your favorite independent bookstore seller. That experience when you walk in, smell the books, wander around, and then ask your favorite salesperson..."I really enjoyed (insert your most recent book love here). Do you have anything like that?" Why yes, we do. It's The 1 Book Subscription.

We will send out a mix of hardcover and paperback books for three, six, or 12 months based on your preferences. (You may also add-on a Hardcover Only option when you check out.) When you are ordering, we ask a variety of questions that help us pick the perfect book for you! We hand pick titles and send them, lovingly-chosen, lovingly-wrapped, every month for your subscription. Subscriptions ordered before the 25th of each month will be sent the next month. Orders coming after the 25th will go out with the following month's boxes.

For gift subscriptions, you will receive a beautiful email with information about the gift and how to redeem for you to forward to the receiver when you choose.

Books are sent starting on the 1st of each month following your order. We guarantee your happiness with the book we deliver. If you don't like it, or if you've already read it, let us know. A replacement will quickly be on its way. No need to send the other back. Pass it along. We think there is no better karma than sharing a good book.

We're an online store and ship all over the nation - -  and sometimes beyond. However, our homebase started as a small Indie bookstore in Evanston, Illinois. We have relocated to California.
