Subscriptions are now available with behind-the-scenes access, extras, deals, and more

(Brooklyn, NY) – Book Riot announced on Wednesday their new Insiders program, which will allow subscribers exclusive access to features including a curated new releases calendar, a subscribers-only forum, a podcast dedicated to the Read Harder challenge, a glimpse at operations behind-the-scene, and special deals to the Book Riot store.

“This is a project we’ve had on our minds for some time, and we’re delighted to launch it,” said editorial operations manager Jenn Northington. “Our community is full of incredible people, and we’re excited to have another way for them to interact with us and each other, as well as get some great perks!”

The perks in question are organized around common feature requests from Book Riot’s readers. For example, while there is already a thriving Goodreads group for the 2017 Read Harder Challenge, which encourages participants to step outside their usual reading comfort zones, the dedicated podcast will provide curated picks from Book Riot contributors Josh Corman and S. Zainab Williams. The New Releases Index will give subscribers an interactive, customizable way to track upcoming books, and the subscribers-only forum will give Insiders a place to compare reading notes, chat with Book Riot staff and contributors, and get personalized book recommendations.

“Book Riot is what it is today because of the passionate community of book lovers who have come together online and in person to celebrate the power of reading,” said Rebecca Schinsky, executive director of product and e-commerce. “We’re always looking for new ways to connect with readers–and to connect readers with each other–and Book Riot Insiders allows us to do that while also providing new content, tools, and digital gathering places to enrich readers’ lives.”

Readers can subscribe starting at $3 per month or $29 per year; the full list of levels and features is available at
