Memberships (LRB Portal)

Many thanks for your interest in our society via the London Review of Books!

Every quarter our expert Selectors, themselves all established poets, read hundreds of new books to choose the best new single author collection, known as the Choice book, which our Full members receive free along with the quarterly Bulletin. Also picked are four Recommendations, a Special Commendation, a Recommended Translation and a Pamphlet Choice.

Our reinvigorated Bulletin special edition, complete with a beautiful redesign, will debut for members in November. The Bulletin contains short reviews of the selected books from the Selectors and contributions from the poets themselves, together with a selection of other new books. Almost all of these books, and indeed any book in print in the UK, can be ordered at the 25% members' discount.

In addition to all this there is a tempting joining offer for full members of a free copy of the last season’s Choice title, and a £10 voucher redeemable on the PBS website.
