If thrills are gained by the purchase of a random book without requiring a synopsis, perhaps a personalised book subscription might be what you’re looking for. Our favourite indie bookstore, BooksActually, has launched a BooksActually Box subscription programme. Pick one of their many curators, choose a three-, six-, or 12-month membership (starting from SGD129), and wait for your care package to arrive. You get recommended books from your chosen curator, as well as other gifts that “complement(s) your reading experience”. Sign us up.
