It really inspired me to reconsider the way I buy books, and what positive changes I could make to be more of a sustainable queen 👑

The highlights of this book box for me is getting books I may not have picked up myself and the fact it's a surprise makes it so fun!!!!

Our Mission

Join us on our mission to save 100,000 books by the end of 2021.

When we discovered that millions of books aren’t recycled each year because of the glue that they are bound with, we had to do something about it.

Hand Me Down Book Club has been established to prevent books being sent to landfill whilst they still have great stories to tell.

Each month, we source and redistribute thousands of pre-loved fiction books, hand selecting the perfect book box, and delivering them to you. You'll receive a surprise selection of books from authors and titles that you may not have chosen yourself.

A win for you, a win for the environment, and a win for books!

How does it work?

  1. 1
    Choose your favourite genre or select the surprise me book box and let us carefully curate your book box

    Then let us know how many books you would like in your box
