About Bionic Book Subscription

Bionic Book Subscription launched in Melbourne during the Covid-19 lockdown period. Good books have always been important, and reading has always been an entertaining, enriching and exciting experience. But the ability to travel to other lands and worlds, experience other lives and adventures – without leaving your house - has never been more valuable.

Our aim is to enrich peoples' experiences in isolation and beyond with the joy of good books, getting non-readers reading and readers expanding their literary palettes. We want to create lasting reading habits and continue to enrich people’s minds and imaginations.

How it works

Half human, half machine, our algorithm learns your taste preferences and our expert curators select books based on those preferences, designed to challenge you, entertain you, engage your mind and ultimately grow your enjoyment of reading.

We build an initial taste profile based on your answers to our questionnaire, which is then updated as you read more books and tell us what you like and don’t like about them. The more you read, the better it gets.

You can choose one book per month or one book every two months.

Books are sent out on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month and the cut-off date for new subscriptions is the first and third Wednesday of the month. So, if you sign up before the first Wednesday of the month, your book will be sent out the following Wednesday. If you sign up after the first Wednesday but before the third Wednesday, your book will be sent out on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

If you've already read a book you're sent, you can exchange for a different book. We'll send you a return label to send the book back and offer you a choice of books to exchange it for.

You can pause or cancel your subscription at any time.

Pay-as-you-go subscriptions starting at $32.95 per month or one book delivered every two months for $32.95 every two months, including Australia-wide shipping. Gift and prepaid book subscriptions are also available at lower monthly rates.

If you've previously completed the taste questionnaire but haven't signed up yet, login or create an account then select your preferred subscription option.
