Some Recent Comments by Members.
“I must tell you however that my monthly Book Package has been received with the same delight as the inmates of the various Stalag Luft camps would have greeted their Red Cross parcels!”

"These personalised book parcels have been instrumental in me becoming an actual collector of books rather than remaining a mere book accumulator. The quality of postings I've received from you  (and the obvious attention you pay to them) has helped form the basis of a library I'm now very very proud of..."
“You've managed to surpass yourself, again! Nominated for Best box of the Year.
Thank you again Bob, your ears will now continue to burn, as our Postie travels around the village singing your well-deserved praises”.
“Thank you so much for the fantastic book box that I received this week! It came at just the right time, as admittedly, I needed to fight off some 'dismals' that occasionally happen when the days become shorter! 
The contents were perfect”.
“Thanks for another fantastic box of goodies. Seriously, man, this is the best thing I’ve ever signed up for!
I have had so much fun with everything. You and The Sanctuary are awesome”.
“I was delighted with your pick of books and the goodies too, not just the subject matter, but the particular ones.
I love the idea of serendipitous choices and very much look forward to future parcels”.
“Never been anything but delighted to be a member... six stars from me!”

We are absolutely thrilled with the new box arrival from you, so a big thank you!  You've made us very happy!

So, here below is our personal invitation to you, to join …
The Sanctuary Members Book Club.
 This page last updated  July 7th 2021.

To follow our Bookshop Diary...please click here.

Club benefits:
1. For an annual subscription, you will receive one book parcel a month, for twelve months (or at whatever spacing you choose).
Your parcel will weigh up to 2.0 kg.
2. Your first month trial mailing to you will be free…but with no obligation to subscribe.
Enclosed with our monthly Book Selection: there may be our “Poem of the Month” with background information.
And, in your December book parcel, an Xmas gift.
The idea for this came to us from a major mailing error in August 2017. Completely unrelated books were sent to the wrong purchasers, by inadvertently swopping addresses.
Instead of being taken to task, customers wrote in to say how fascinated they were. They were books they would never have chosen, but they had read them from cover to cover..!
Please, could they have more!
So, the idea behind our Book Club is that we gradually build up a record of your likes, dislikes, enthusiasms, hobbies, etc., but with our guarantee that in the first two months of your subscription, any total mismatch (or a book you already possess) will be exchanged, if returned, by a replacement and completely free.

The economics are as follows:
UK post up to 2.0 kg weight second class is £3.10. Notice, we are not interested in mailing you 50p paperbacks. Our monthly choice of books for you (two kilograms worth!) will always be selected from our Shop, and Shop Reserve Stock, of 45,000 volumes. We see this as an opportunity for you to quietly build an interesting library with our help, especially if you are far from a good bookshop, perhaps housebound, or, unlikely to be able to visit Lyme Regis on a regular basis.
Book Club members are encouraged to leave feedback with us (by letter, phone, email, etc.), but only should they wish.
In that way, we hope to gradually improve our service to you.
You can find a selection of these at the top of this page.
