This year, make time for yourself to read! Win a 12-month Bookily card and a signed copy of Thrown by Sara Cox

Reading has been shown to have a positive impact on your mental health and wellbeing

Settling down with a book reduces stress, eases anxiety, and helps you switch off, which is why we're giving away the ultimate treat to make 2023 your year of reading and relaxation, which includes a Bookily card for you to choose a new book with every month.

One lucky winner will receive: 

  • A signed copy of Thrown – the wise and gloriously big-hearted novel from much-loved broadcaster Sara Cox, newly out in paperback in February, which sees four women begin friendships during their estate's new pottery class
  • A Bookily card, loaded with £8.99 per month for a year (if UK) or a €125 National Book Tokens gift card (if Ireland)
  • 12 of publisher Hodder's biggest and best new books:
    • Maame by Jessica George
    • Library Suicides by Fflur Dafydd
    • Something to Hide by Elizabeth George
    • The Gift by Alan Titchmarsh
    • The House Across the Lake by Riley Sager
    • Slimming Eats by Siobhan Wightman
    • All on the Board: Inspirational Quotes from the TfL Underground Duo (signed)
    • A World of Curiosities by Louise Penny
    • Forever Home by Graham Norton
    • Loki by Melvin Burgess
    • Fresh Mob: Over 100 tasty, healthy-ish recipes
