If you are already a member of our community, the process is a little easier as we already recognise you, and billing information will only need to be supplied.

Upon creating your account, you agree to accept responsibility for all actives that occur under your account including your password. If you believe someone has accessed your account without your permission, you must log into your account, change your password and email gifts@lovereading.co.uk

Purchasing a Subscription

The Kids Book Boxes available on subscription will ensure that the recipient is posted an age relevant book chosen for the package undertaken per month. There is no option to cancel deliveries that have been paid for, other than as stipulated in our cancellation terms below.

Upon subscription, you authorise us to arrange withdrawal of funds, from the credit or debit card you supplied upon ordering, at the start of each subscription term without further reference to you.

If your payment fails for whatever reason, you will be notified by email and we will retry the payment several times. You agree not to hold us responsible for banking charges incurred due to payments we take.

As part of your Kids Book Box subscription, subscribers will receive an email on or about the 10th of each month announcing our new monthly picks. You will have until the end of the 15th day of the month to review the monthly picks and decide which book you would like. If you take no action, a book will be chosen for you. Remember, they are all stars and are highly recommended by our experts.

Books are posted on the first working day of each calendar month. If we receive your order on or before the 25th of the calendar month your book will be posted out at the beginning of the following month. Orders received after 25th will be sent out on the first of the next month. A gift certificate can however be printed or be sent out first class before 2pm on the day of order to you, or the recipient. This is given as an option on confirmation of your order.

New subscribers joining after the 15th day of the month, and before the 25th, will be able to make their selection at the time of ordering. 

If you join as a subscriber after the 25th of any given month, you will only have the option to select titles from the following month, on the 10th of the following first month. 

When gifting a subscription for a child, you will be classed as ‘the subscriber’ and the recipient, ‘the recipient’. As the subscriber, you are the primary owner of the account, responsible for entering correct information, including payment information and delivery details for the recipient to receive their first order. 

By agreeing to these terms and conditions the subscriber agrees that they have permission to share their recipient’s email and postal address under a legitimate purpose to give the gift of a book subscription.

For the duration of the gift, the subscriber will be responsible for the payment details. The subscriber shall enter an email address for the recipient (if gifting for a child, please enter a parent or guardian’s email address). 

Subscriptions will automatically renew unless notified by the subscriber in advance of the renewal date, that you wish to cancel or suspend your subscription package. You understand that your membership will automatically renew on your assigned renewal date. 

This date will either be made available to you via your account page. As a member, you authorise us (without notice to you, unless required by applicable law) to charge a renewal subscription identical to the regularity and time period previously undertaken by yourself, using the debit/credit card we have on file for you. 

From time to time, we may change the price associated with the available subscription packages on our website during the term of your membership; in such a case, you will be notified ahead of time and your membership will renew at the then-prevailing price of your current plan.

All renewal payments will be taken on the 1st of the month in which you are due to receive the first book of your new subscription term. You can see when your next payment is due by visiting 'My Account' once logged into our website.

There is the option at the end of the subscription period for the subscriber to opt out, end the subscription and offer a transfer to the recipient. This must be managed at the subscription end period in your account in advance of your renewal date.

Purchasing a Gift

The Kids Book Boxes are available as a one off gift and will ensure that the recipient is posted two age relevant books. There is no option to cancel deliveries that have been paid for, other than as stipulated in our cancellation terms below.

Upon ordering the gift of a book, you authorise us to arrange withdrawal of funds, from the credit or debit card you supplied.

Books are posted twice a month: the first working day of each calendar month and the 15th of each calendar month, or nearest working day. A gift certificate can however be printed or be sent out first class before 2pm on the day of order to you, or the recipient. This is given as an option on confirmation of your order.
