About WBC

Award-winning book subscription gifts for the reader in your life.


Welcome to The Willoughby Book Club; the UK's largest personalised book subscription provider.

Founded from our kitchen table in September 2012, our growing team of bookworms now select and send books to subscribers in over 30 countries across the world.

The premise is simple. Each and every month our subscribers receive a brand new book that's been handpicked to match their own reading tastes by our team of literary experts.

And for every subscription sold we'll also donate a brand new book to the charity Book Aid International, in order to support their vital educational and developmental work in Sub-Saharan Africa.

All of which makes for a very happy bookworm indeed.
