never stop learning

Back to School with Rebel Book Club.

Join us for Autumn 2021!

It takes 3 months to master a habit:

3 months x 3 books x 3 meets = Maximum Impact!

Strictly nonfiction.

what we'll be exploring this autumn...

We shortlist 3 awesome nonfiction books on a new theme each month.

Rebel Book Club members vote for the winner.

Then choose between our online meetup, one of our larger city hubs, or collaborate on a micro-meet with other members in your area.

join for autumn...

Have your say on what we read next

Where to go with Love? From the evolution of monogamy in humans to the yawning chasms between enticing fantasy and cruel reality. Will we choose to explore faith, art, love, and queer sexuality, or the paradoxical relationship between domesticity and sexual desire?

Cash, Cash, Money! How about a banking blockbuster filled with big ideas tenacity, persistence, and hard work? Marijuana and tequila-filled boardrooms built on nothing but promises, or immersing ourselves in an obscure and sometimes sinister world on a wild and surprising ride all while illuminating a tantalizing economic future...?

'Successful people confront well', do you agree? What can we learn from those who've gone face-to-face with bank robbers, gang leaders, and terrorists? What does that 'sweet spot' look like between managers who are obnoxiously aggressive on the one side and ruinously empathetic on the other?

Curious? We’re a community of life-long learners with the best classroom you’ve ever been in. Imagine being joined by hundreds of kindred spirits around the world as you go forth on your quest for knowledge.

Become a Rebel Reader this Autumn, smash that unread book stack, hold down that habit + turn insights into action.

One book at a time.

how it works...

Vote | Read | Meet | Repeat

VOTE | Always based on a theme, our members vote for 1 of 3 nonfiction books shortlisted by the team. Everyone reads the winner.

READ | 1 month to read the book before our meetup. We set reading targets + send weekly nudges in our Monday newsletters. Book chats galore!

MEET | Our meetups are always on the last Tuesday of the month at 7pm (UK). Choose between our high-octane virtual events for members joining from around the world, or an opportunity for meeting in person in our largest city hubs (e.g. London + Bristol). Authors, experts + inspiration guaranteed!

REPEAT | We go again!

All this is accompanied by a private social network, an array of specialist spin-off groups, club socials, bonus author events, optional reading accountability buddies + access to networking with a huge global community of passionate, curious minds.

All for the price of your average Deliveroo!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Rebel Book Club exist?

We live in confusing times.

We can access more information than ever before. We can easily connect with like-minded people around the world. We can work from (almost) anywhere. We can explore content, topics and subjects with a couple of clicks.

But, despite this abundance, many of us often feel overwhelmed, slightly lost and disconnected from each other. 

Over the last six years we've discovered that diving deeper into different topics and discussing them helps us make more sense of the noise in our heads and around us.

It helps us improve our ability to focus in a distracted age. 

It helps us connect on a human level beyond emoji's (although we use them a lot) and notifications.

It helps us develop the habit of lifelong learning that can lead to all kinds of exciting shifts.

Rebel Book Club is a home for those who are hungry to learn without going 'back to school'.

It is a place for people to re-connect with others who share their curious mindset and concerns for our changing world.

It is a place to make friends, have fun and maybe be part of something special.

Can anyone join Rebel Book Club?
Yes if....
...you have a hungry mind.
...you get distracted by ideas.
...you like asking surprising questions.
...you try and apply what you see and learn to your own life.
...you want to rekindle your love of reading.

...you want to meet people who are similarly curious.

We're a tribe of open-minded thinkers who are motivated to invest valuable time and energy into learning, connecting and cultivate a growth mindset towards life. 

If this sounds like you (or who you want to be), jump in!

Yes!

Our members read in a variety of formats: hardback, paperback, kindle or ebook, and, increasingly, audio. 

If you're on a membership with vouchers you can put towards any of these. 

When and where are the meetups?

Meetups currently happen on the last Tuesday every month (except in December) between 7-9pm.

We currently run in-person meetups in the UK in London, Bristol, Brighton & Manchester. 

We run global virtual meetups at the same time.

What happens if I can't attend a meetup?

Now we're hybrid (in-person and virtual)...no excuses! Bring your cat.

You should sack whoever manages your diary! Seriously though, if you're on holiday (or an unavoidable zoom) or otherwise unavailable, no biggie - we'll keep you in the loop with everything you missed with our monthly guides. 

How do you choose which books to read?

We curate books that we think will appeal to the RBC community.

We present three inspiring options each month, often recommendations from the community. Our shortlists always include at least one independent publisher and one under-represented author. We want to support more equality in publishing!

Members then vote for their favourite and we've got our book for the following month! Expect to see books around creativity, motivation, impact, business, entrepreneurship, happiness, wellbeing, tech, science, politics, nature and innovation with the occasional inspiring biography thrown in for good measure.

Best way to see the type of books we read is to check out our library.

Why do I need to apply to join?

Ultimately, anyone can purchase and read a book each month. The real value of joining Rebel Book Club is in the a-team community that make you accountable every month. We want to align with people who are committed and can add value to the community. The book club is just the start...

Can I bring RBC to my city?

We've had a lot of requests to start RBC in different cities which is really exciting. We're taking things one step (and book) at a time. If you're motivated to help bring RBC to your hood and know a group of people who would be ideal members then let us know.

Can I stop my membership?

Yes. You can stop your membership anytime by emailing us. We will complete this within 7 days of receiving your email. We can kickstart your membership again whenever you're ready.

Can I get a refund on my membership?

Sorry, no. Your membership is non-refundable. Your membership fees are supporting accelerating reading habits and positive action!
