Book Subscription Boxes for Contemporary Literature Lovers

Destination Books is an independent online bookstore which puts together a conscious curation of contemporary literature for readers who want to read diversely. Each curation features 20 contemporary book titles from diverse authors and independent publishers, as well as plenty of translated fiction.

We're launching a new UK book subscription box for readers of literary fiction & non-fiction!

Our book boxes feature books from our curation which are hand-picked for each reader based on their specified interests and favourite genres. What's more, there are 5 book boxes to choose from and these can be purchased as one-off boxes for yourself or your bookish friends, or on a subscription basis meaning you'll get regular bookmail to make your day.

In this blog post, we're telling you more about each of the book boxes and helping you decide which book box is right for you.
