The Reader Magazine Subscription

The Reader Magazine Issue 71 Image

The Reader magazine is the voice of The Reader, a national charity bringing about a Reading Revolution so that everyone can experience and enjoy great literature, which we believe is a tool for helping humans survive and live well. Through our global Shared Reading movement, powered by 1,000 volunteers and many partnerships, we bring thousands of people together every month through weekly reading aloud groups. We use literature to connect people to themselves and others, develop a shared language for our inner lives, and spark the social and personal change needed in the world.

Please note that The Reader Magazine is a biannual publication. During your annual subscription, you will receive the next 2 issues of the magazine by post (September 2020 and March 2021). Your subscription payment is inclusive of postage and packaging.

If you would like to purchase a single copy of the March 2020 issue, you can do so here. 

As the UK is currently in lockdown while we all try to slow the spread of Coronavirus (Covid 19), please note that there will be delays in fulfilling orders from the website. Please bear with us and thank you for your support in these uncertain times.
