If you are looking to give the gift of choice to your favorite book lover, look no further. Below are the best book and audiobook subscription gifts.
(These are also some of my favorite places where to buy books online cheap!)
What are the best book subscription gifts?
Book of the Month Hardcover Book Subscription
Book of the Month makes the perfect subscription for any book lover. Each month, Book of the Month scours and picks five of the best new reads. They emphasize early releases, fresh perspectives, and debut authors. Book of the Month members select one of those five picks and get it delivered to their door (or via audio on the app).
It’s fun to get a new book each month, and it takes the guesswork out of researching new books. Book of the Month is known for the quality of its selections. It also offers books prior to the date they are released to the public.
Book of the Month is also very reasonably priced. At the time of posting, a 3-month gift subscription is $49.99 ($16.66 per book), a 6-month gift subscription is $99.99 ($16.66 per book) and a 12-month gift subscription is $179.99 ($15.00 per book). This is generally cheaper than the average cost of new hardcover books.
Readers (including me) LOVE Book of the Month, and it’s a really popular book subscription service, so I have no doubt your gift recipient will not be disappointed with a subscription to Book of the Month.
Kindle Unlimited E-book Subscription
Kindle Unlimited is a great subscription gift for people who love their Kindle and/or read a lot of books. If you know someone who is already on their Kindle a lot, chances are they have thought about subscribing to Kindle Unlimited. This would also make a great gift for an avid reader who is just learning how to use Kindle.
Kindle Unlimited provides access to unlimited reading from over 3 million ebooks (as well as unlimited listening to thousands of audiobooks) via the Kindle device or the Kindle app on a device. There are so many bestselling books to choose from.
And if your gift recipient needs a Kindle to go with this subscription gift, this specific Kindle Paperwhite is the one I use and trust:
Audible Audiobook Subscription
Almost anyone can benefit from an Audible audiobook subscription gift. Young or old, man or woman — audiobooks are a great way for anyone to experience books, especially busy people, commuters, and those who physically cannot read books.
And if your gift recipient is already a fan of audiobooks, what better way to treat them?!
Each month, your recipient can select 1 audiobook and access the Audible Premium Plus library. At the time of posting, there are 1-month, 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month subscription options.
These prices for Audible gift subscriptions are also generally less than the average cost of one retail audiobook.
Libro.fm Audiobook Subscription
Libro.fm is an app where you can similarly listen to audiobooks, but it supports independent bookstores. You can either support all independent bookstores generally or choose a specific one to support. I use this service all the time and love it!
Credit bundles (formerly known as gift memberships) now come in 2-($30), 3-($45), 6-($90), 9-($135), 12-($180) and 24-credit ($360) packs.
Those are the best book and audiobook subscription gifts from the advice of a reader of 100+ books per year. I hope you found one to suit your gift recipient’s biggest wishes.
