Our neighbourhood bookstore Bleak House Books has just launched a new book subscription service: The Pickwick Club!
The Pickwick Club is a yearly subscription scheme for English used books. Bleak House Books (BHB) will send out 3-4 books, every 12 weeks, to each subscriber. There will be three different subscription streams for readers to choose from: Mystery & Suspense, General Fiction, and Young Adult.
"Mystery & Suspense" will range from works by the old masters like Agatha Christie and Rex Stout to works by lesser known authors that pack as much punch as the "classics".
"General Fiction" will run the gamut from Greek tragedies to Lao She to Ernest Hemingway to Dean Koontz.
"Young Adult" is geared toward chapter book readers. In that stream readers will find books by the likes of Roald Dahl, Judy Blume, John Green, and E.L. Konigsburg.
In addition to books BHB may from time to time include some literary goodies with their mailings like coupons, promotions, and other odds and ends to keep things fresh and exciting.
【Pickwick's Club Price Scheme】 :
General Public: $620 (postage included)
Current and new subscribers of Zihua: HKD $550 (postage included)
*This subscription is available to local readers only.
Terms, Conditions and Miscellany:
- The books will be used but in good reading condition, all hand curated by Bleak House Books' knowledgeable staff.
- Unfortunately, BHB cannot take requests to personalize the subscriptions at this time.
- If you receive a book that you are unsatisfied with, either because you've read it already or because you don't like what you just read, you can mail it back or return it in person to Bleak House Books in San Po Kong and exchange it for another book of equal or lesser value.
- Gift subscriptions are welcome. Just indicate your preference when you complete the subscription form and BHB will take it from there.
Bleak House Books Bio
Founded in February 2017 by an ex-lawyer and a historian, Bleak House Books (清明堂 in Chinese) is one of the last remaining independent bookshops in Hong Kong specializing in new and used English language books.
We started out selling our books at local markets, then opened up a bookshop in San Po Kong in January 2018. With over 7,000 titles we have something for everyone, from rare, first editions to twenty, thirty dollar bargain books by such authors as Margaret Atwood, Judy Blume, Lao Tzu, and J.R.R. Tolkein.
Everything we sell in our bookshop - from books to comics to sheet music -- is hand curated by our knowledgeable staff.
Apart from selling books, we regularly host events at our bookshop. In the past we’ve had poetry readings, book club meetings, and school field trips. To us the bookshop is as much a space for the public as it is for our books.
You can learn more about Bleak House Books, its staff and the kinds of books we sell at www.bleakhousebooks.com.hk.
The bookshop is located at Unit 2705, 27/F, Well Tech Centre, 9 Pat Tat Street, San Po Kong, Kowloon. We can be reached by phone at 3705 0251, or by email at email@example.com.
