What is the Surprise Book Shop?

Reading is inspiring and sometimes down right magical, but the act of picking a book can be stressful and time consuming. That's where we come in: when you buy a Surprise Book, we choose a book for you.

All books are brand new, and you can either pick a genre or leave it entirely up to the Surprise Book gods.

The price for a Surprise Book is $10 flat, anywhere in the US.

What kind of books can I expect?

Fiction, non-fiction, biography, sci-fi, horror and any other genre. Select your genre, or allow yourself to be completely surprised.

So give it a go, order a Surprise Book, then sit back and enjoy reading something just a little bit different.

OK - I'm convinced! What next?

Simple - Select your preferred genre or leave it up to us and click Buy Now.

The price of a Surprise Book is $10, shipping included.

Unfortunately, we are not able to ship outside of the US at this time.

Who is behind this?

The Surprise Book Shop was originally founded by Andy Warburton, and recently sold to Surprise Industries, a US-based company that crafts Surprise Experiences. The way we see it, books are experiences as well, so it was the perfect fit.
