Announcing our brand new subscription program!

Milkweed Staff — 10/05/2017

Keeping up with the thousands of new books published each season—not to mention all those great books you missed last year, and the year before that, and the year before that—can make selecting your next read overwhelming. We know how it goes. Your “To-Be-Read” pile grows and grows.

How do you choose what to read next?

We’re here to help. As a publisher with almost forty years of experience and an independent bookstore that specializes in curating the best work from our fellow independent presses, we are constantly sifting through physical and digital mountains of books. And, when we aren’t reading books, we’re reading about books and talking about books. We swap books, compare notes, and debate. It’s our job—and greatest joy—to keep our fingers on the pulse of what’s new. The next bestseller, the next brilliant breakthrough. Even better: the equally life-changing but somehow overlooked indie.

Let us sift through thousands of books.
Get only the very best delivered to your doorstep.

We now offer three different subscription plans. The original Read This Next! subscription (six books per year) features the most exciting new voices in literature. The Indie Spotlight subscription showcases the vital work of our fellow independent presses and the six books per year will introduce you to the most compelling and eclectic books we’ve encountered. Lastly, the Long Live Books subscription combines the previous two, and ensures you’ll have a new book to read every single month of the year.

Each subscription package includes publishing-insider extras. Extras may include personal notes from our booksellers, author signatures, letters from the author, exclusive merchandise, and more.

Deliverable to anywhere in the U.S., subscriptions make great gifts—for a friend, or for yourself.
