Welcome to Books With A Conscience
Read books. Make Change.
What We Do
Books With A Conscience is a subscription box service aimed at helping you to make a difference.
Every month you will receive a hardback book, based on your reading preferences and favourite genres. Most of the profits of your purchase will be donated to our monthly chosen charity, allowing you to fuel your reading habits whilst supporting important causes across the UK and beyond.
We handpick smaller charities that you may not have heard of before and we provide, with your box, all the information about the work that month's charity is doing so you can learn exactly how your subscription is making a difference.
This Month's Charity
Our April charity partner is The Kit Tarka Foundation, a UK charity that prevent newborn baby deaths through research and education.
The charity was founded by Sarah and James in 2017 after the death of their son Kit (pictured). Kit was born healthy at full term but tragically died when he was just 13 days old. He had contracted the herpes virus in hospital but it wasn't diagnosed until after he died so he never received the antiviral medication he needed to save his life.
Neonatal herpes (the cold sore virus on babies) is thought to be the cause of death for one baby every week in the UK but awareness is very low so it often goes undiagnosed and untreated with tragic consequences. The Kit Tarka Foundation works to achieve their mission through funding relevant research and developing training and education programmes for medical professionals and the general public.
The Kit Tarka Fountation website acts as one of the world’s top resources for neonatal herpes and they strive to make all the information as accessible as possible for anyone who may need it.
This is our standard subscription. Every month, receive a hardback book, based on your favourite genres and reading preferences, straight to your doorstep. A minimum of £2.00 of your money goes directly to support our monthly charity.
Want to give more money to charity each month? Tier two provides the same box of a handpicked hardback book but you can be guaranteed that a minimum of £5.00 from your order will go directly to our chosen charity each month.
Tier three is our highest donation tier. It combines the monthly subscription box of a hardback book handpicked for you with at least £7.00 going directly to support the work of our monthly charity.
How It Works
Let's talk you through it.
Set up your subscription
Choose which subscription tier is best for you and checkout. Our cut off date for each month's box is the 5th. If you subscribe after this time you won't be charged until the 1st of the next month.
Confirm your monthly book pick
On the 1st of each month we will email your monthly book pick. If you like the look of this choice, then you don't need to do anything.
If you already own the book, or would prefer to choose another book, you can go to our website, see our other picks for the month and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with which book you would prefer to receive.
Sit back and relax!
Your box will be packaged up by our dedicated team and sent out by the 14th of the month so all you have to do is excitedly anticipate its arrival.
While you are waiting, you might want to have a look at the current charity your money is supporting and see all the amazing work you are helping to fund.
