With over 30 combined years in the business, we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how best to connect great books with passionate readers, and it was in pursuit of a new and different solution that we created Alexi.

With an evolving roster of acclaimed writers, artists and cultural figures, and a lauded in-house team – whose roles have variously included Editor of Granta Magazine, Literary Editor of the Independent on Sunday and Deputy Literary Editor of the Sunday Times – Alexi is designed to offer our members a more engaging and enjoyable way to find the perfect book for them.

By browsing recommendations, sampling books, adding titles to your personal Alexi library and favouriting and sharing with your friends and family, you will quickly get the hang of how Alexi works. Every book recommended by us is available to read on the Alexi iOS app, and available for you to choose for up to four weeks. All you need to do is add a title you’re interested in to your personal Alexi library, which can hold up to 12 books at a time, and it will remain there for you to enjoy for as long as you keep it in your library and retain your Alexi membership.

We view our members as creative collaborators in the cause of discovering, reading and celebrating the best books out there, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or suggestions you might have. We’d love to hear from you.
