Introducing Queenie Reads! Book Club
Hey, hi, hello!
You may know me - I’m Mackenzi, and I was a longtime bookseller at The King’s English (TKE). And if you don’t know me, you probably know my big St. Bernard Queenie who could often be found napping in the kid’s room. Usually under the air conditioning. Q and I moved to Los Angeles, and I’m already feeling the withdrawals of not being able to force books on the fine customers of TKE. Lucky for you, I’ve found a way to do it from adistance!
Queenie Reads, a subscription box that provides you with one new book, hand-picked by me, Mackenzi, every month!
Questions? Let’s go through it!
How does it work?
You pay for a six month or one year subscription, forget about it, and then are surprised and delighted each month when a new book appears on your doorstep, hand-picked by me, along with a little note about why I love this book and why I think you will also love it. A few times throughout the year, we may also include little gifts. Who knows!?
What sorts of books will you pick?
I read a little bit of everything, and my picks will be as varied as my taste. My book pick one month might be young adult, then nonfiction the next. You might get a hard-core high fantasy
followed by a picture book. YOU NEVER KNOW! I do tend to prefer female-driven stories, queer stories, funny stories, historical connections, and books that are just generally a little odd.
How much does it cost?
Queenie Reads for six months is $225 and includes shipping and handling. For a whole year of this fun, it’s $425.
Do I have to live in Salt Lake?
Nope! You can live anywhere the post office delivers.
What if I already own the book?
The books I select will be brand new, so chances are you won’t have it yet. But if you have great taste and somehow have already bought the book I chose, just let us know, and we can
work something out.
Probably! This is a work in progress, so if it hits, we might have discussions about the book on social media or give you a chance to add on personalized recommendations or get exclusive
swag from TKE and/or me.
