Books Everyone Should Own - Annual Subscription

With a Books Everyone Should Own (BESO) subscription, you will receive one timeless novel each month over the course of a year. 

Each of these classics was carefully chosen by our founder for its long-standing literary contribution and together they make an incredible collection. 

Every month a book, published by Everyman's Library, will arrive jacketed in an original Juniper Books Design exclusive to the subscription. The jackets are inspired by the look and feel of Victorian-era bookbinding and are finished with stunning metallic accents. 

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. 

    This set was featured in ELLE Decor's "Hollywood Gift Guide," Real Simple's "30 Surprising Subscription Box Ideas," and House Beautiful's "This Subscription Service Sends You Beautiful Versions of The Books Everyone Should Own." 

    Please note, annual subscriptions are not eligible for international shipping. Please see our monthly page to sign up with international shipping.

    How do I purchase a subscription as a gift? 
    Simply sign up for BESO and checkout like a normal purchase, but change your shipping address to the recipient’s address. We cannot gift wrap subscription boxes.

    When will I be charged for the subscription? 

    For the annual option, you will be charged once upon checkout.

    When will my box ship?
    Each month subscription boxes will be sent out the last week of the month. 

    Do you charge for shipping? 
    Ground shipping for continental US orders is included in your subscription box price. We do charge a shipping fee for international orders that you will see at checkout. 

    Do you charge sales tax? 
    We charge applicable sales tax on any purchase shipped to an address in the state of Colorado.

    Can I choose the books in my subscription? 
    We carefully curate the book selections in our subscription boxes for you. Due to publisher availability, the book selection is predetermined and may change, as mentioned in the includes list. 

    Can I purchase a single box rather than the subscription? 
    We have created this offering as a subscription program to bring the best of our design and curation abilities to you with each box. We feel this is best done as a long term commitment, and we feel you will enjoy watching your library grow beautifully over the next 12 months!

    Can I cancel my subscription or change the shipping address if I need to? 
    Annual subscriptions are not eligible for cancellations or refunds. You may change your shipping address at any time in your subscription portal, but please note, changes to your shipping address will apply to future, as-yet unprocessed orders only. Please contact customer service if you need the shipping address changed for an order that has already been processed.

    Can I skip a box? 

    At this time, we can not accommodate skipping shipments.

    What is your return policy? 
    We will exchange damaged or defective books up to 14 days from the date of shipment for replacement. We are unable to offer refunds.

    Are there any coupons or promotions for subscription boxes?
    We are unable to offer any promotions or discounts for our subscription boxes.

    What will happen after I receive my 12th box? 
    This subscription program will expire after twelve months/boxes. Luckily - we do have something new in the works! Check back in May to sign up for our upcoming subscription program: Books Everyone Should Own: 20th Century Classics.

    Please note: To receive your first book this month, you must purchase your subscription by the 15th. Subsequent books will ship at the end of the month for 12 total months.
