Do you like our book selection but feel too daunted by the sheer awesomeness of the collection to know where to start? Do you find yourself stuck in a reading rut, unsure of what you like to read besides post-Marxist relationship advice for polyamorous bike farmers? Do you like being surprised by exciting new books?
Then you should join the Big Idea’s new book subscription program! Every month Big Idea staffers will pick one of their favorite fiction and non-fiction books, and on the 15th of the month there will be a book waiting for you at the store or mailed to your house.
Q: What books do I get?
A: Collective members will choose their favorite books from our collection. If you are opposed to surprises email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a list of the next 3 or 6 books.
Q: What topics will the non-fiction books cover?
A: The nonfiction books will tackle a different topic each month, rotating between the different Big Issues we cover. These include environment, social movements, anarchism, history, race politics, among others. For a comprehensive list of topics we cover come by and explore our bookshelves!
Q: Is this a deal?
A: (Statistically speaking) Yes! We’re basing our subscription prices on our average fiction and non-fiction book prices, and adding a discount of 25%. Once we choose the actual books, those prices will vary a bit around the average, but our promise to you is that we’ll choose based on book quality not cost.
Q: Can I give this as a gift?
A: YES! Please do.
Q: Do I need to show up at the store on the 15th to claim my book?
A: No. You can pick your book up whenever you happen to be in the store anytime during the month. If you are going to pick it up but are unable to make it in within the month, send an email to email@example.com and let us know that you do in fact plan to pick it up and when you think that you will be able to!
Q: What the fuck, I already own this book?
A: Sorry, that sucks. But you have good taste in books and probably have a friend whose life would be enriched by reading it. The Big Idea can’t return books to publishers just because we decided we don’t want them, and with the discounts given on the books we aren’t making much money on each individual subscription. That being said, if you are a part of the 6month in-store book subscription program you can reject one book during that time, and we will extend your subscription an additional month.
Q: I hate/love this program and I went to the store to tell you why but the volunteer behind the counter said they weren’t responsible for the program.
A: You can send praises, disdains, questions and comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org and those parties responsible will read whatever you have to say.
