Books Everyone Should Own: 20th Century Classics - Annual Subscription

With the Books Everyone Should Own: 20th Century Classics subscription, you will receive one incredible novel from the last century each month, curated by Juniper Books’ founder Thatcher Wine. 

Every book was handpicked by Juniper Books founder Thatcher Wine for their meaningful contributions to literature and society. 

Each book, published by Everyman's Library, comes jacketed in a Juniper Books design, exclusive to this subscription. The standalone jackets are bold and modern, and each design speaks to the text within.

This prepaid option is perfect for gifting, or for yourself! You will be charged the full amount for your year-long subscription at checkout, and will receive one book a month for the next twelve months. Would you rather pay monthly? We also have a Monthly Subscription option.
