A new book subscription service hopes to introduce you to “literary hidden gems that you may not have otherwise come across.” Aphilia cuts down on the time needed to hunt for your next great read while allowing you to get to the part that actually matters — reading.


Each month, the brand will send you one wrapped copy of a newly released title, along with a card detailing why the title was chosen. The service is geared toward book browsers unsure of what to buy next, readers looking for hidden gems they might not find on their own, busy readers who don’t want to browse ,and book clubs who simply don’t want to make the next month’s pick on their own.

Books chosen include both nonfiction and fiction titles. The latter are decidedly literary rather than genre. Examples of books you might see in a shipment include A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie or Normal People by Sally Rooney.


There are four subscription options available: a three-month, six-month, nine-month and 12-month option, with the three-month subscription priced at $75, so $25 per book (the 12-month option is $300, so, no, you won’t save by purchasing a longer subscription).
