What is ShelterBox Book Club?
ShelterBox Book Club is made up of members all around the country, who all share the love of a quality read.
Each member can vote on the next book – a shortlist carefully selected by Head Bookworm, who is always on the lookout for compelling stories from around the world and strong characters with depth.
Join the ShelterBox Book Club community today with a monthly payment to ShelterBox, and you can look forward to receiving your own copy of each winning book, reading along at your own pace and joining the discussion online. Alternatively, you can gift a membership to a loved one.
