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!

When you signup to one of our membership options your direct debit gets automatically setup. The fee will be charged every 3 or 12 months on the date you signed up. 

You can also join with a one-off membership payments.

Can I get involved if I don't own a Kindle or eReader?

Yes!

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

If you're on a full-stack membership you can put your monthly voucher 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.

During lockdown we're running fully remote meets mirroring our in-person events including 'Cocktails from your Cupboard', live Q&A with authors & experts, break-out sessions with city groups and chat-roulette with members.

Members also self-organise 'power-hour' meetups in local cafes (and parks in the summer) for 30 mins reading + 30 mins chat.

What happens if I can't attend a meetup?

Now we're 100% remote...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.
