What is Reading in Heels?
Reading in Heels is a monthly subscription service and digital book club for intelligent, stylish modern women, letting you discover the latest in modern literary fiction alongside our Expert Edit of beauty and lifestyle treats.
What can I expect in my box?
You’ll receive a beautiful box containing your brand new book, along with a few extra surprises too – think the very best beauty and lifestyle treats to enjoy while you’re reading. Yes, we’re pretty sure that this is the nicest post you’ll get this month!
What kind of books will I receive?
Modern, literary fiction – think prize list books, and the just-published novels everyone’s talking about by the best contemporary writers. We select our books very carefully as we want to be sure that they’re books we’d recommend to our friends – and ideally ones that you’ll want to recommend and talk about too! We only include paperbacks as we find they’re easier to take everywhere and get stuck into reading – we love hardbacks, but sometimes they’re just a bit too heavy to carry in a handbag.
What if I've read the book before?
Oh no! It might happen. Hopefully it won’t. If it does? Books make great gifts! And it’s always interesting to reread a book too.
Can I choose what I receive?
No, we carefully curate what you’ll receive – and yes, everyone gets the same book and treats.
How much is a Reading in Heels box?
Just £10 per month plus P&P.
Do you offer subscriptions?
Yes! You can sign up for a rolling monthly subscription (which you can stop any time), priced at £10 plus P&P – or you can go for a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription, which gets you some tasty discounts! There’s a discount on 6 or 12 month subscriptions.
Can I buy Reading in Heels as a gift?
Of course – and a subscription makes an amazing gift too. Just add a note telling us it’s a gift and add a short message if you like (on the checkout page), and we’ll send a personalized card to your lucky recipient. What a nice person you are – expect a monthly phone call from the person you’ve gifted Reading in Heels to!
Can I buy past boxes?
Sorry, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
How can I pay?
Credit card, debit card or PayPal are the options we offer. Maybe one day you’ll be able to pay us in shoes or Champagne, but for now, we’re keeping things simple.
When will I pay?
If you purchase a recurring subscription, it’ll be every month on the same date. Otherwise you’ll pay for the whole subscription at once – it’s up to you. We close orders on the last working day of the month – so March 31st, for example.
When will I receive my box?
We send boxes in the first week of each month (to arrive by the 10th), so you’ve got ages to read, review and discuss your book! Orders for Europe generally take up to 21 days and for the US can take up to 42 days.
For example, if you order from March 1st – 31st, your box will be sent in the first week of April. Orders made in April will receive a box in the first week of May, and so on.
Do I need to sign for delivery?
No, no need to sign for delivery.
Do you offer returns?
No sorry, we don’t – we hope you’ll love your box!
Can I speak to customer service?
Sure, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd like to cancel my Reading in Heels subscription...
Oh NO! You can do this by logging in to your account and cancelling your subscription. If you pay via PayPal, you may need to cancel there too. Please ensure you cancel before the date your payment is due – i.e. if you pay on March 15th, you’ll need to cancel by March 14th in order to ensure your subscription is cancelled and you don’t receive the following month’s box. Please email should you have any questions!
Do you deliver internationally?
Just to Europe and North America for now!
