Introducing Iconic Reads: Banned Books

Friday, April 14th, 2023.

Banned BooksFor the past few years, book bans and challenges have been at the forefront of the news.  Legions of books are being pulled off of shelves for being "inappropriate" or "dangerous."

However, book bans are anything but new.  Literature has long been censored, challenged, and destroyed for containing dangerous ideas.  In fact, this May is the 90th anniversary of the infamous Nazi burning of over 25,000 books.

In remembrance for and resistance against these book bans, we are proud and excited to unveil our Brilliant Books Monthly Iconic Reads: Banned Books.

Join us on a journey into the long history of book bans — and discover for yourself how truly dangerous literature can be.

Got Your Blue Envelope Yet?

Monday, October 3, 2022.

It's back!  Our third annual Blue Envelope campaign is here, which means that from now through October 31, when you give Brilliant Books Monthly, you'll get a gift for yourself.

Here's how it works. 

You already know that our flagship subscription service, Brilliant Books Monthly, makes a fantastic gift.  So fantastic, in fact, that we get hundreds of orders for new and renewed subscriptions during the holiday season alone. 

If you place your order early enough to beat the Christmas rush (that is, between September 1-21) we've got a Blue Envelope just for you.

What's in it?  Well, like every hand-picked Brilliant Books Monthly selection, it's a surprise.

What's in that Blue Envelope?

Brilliant Books Monthly Iconic Reads

Friday, February 28th, 2020
It's back!  Our limited edition Iconic Reads subscriptions have returned, and we've added three new editions to the lineup. 
Iconic Reads subscriptions feature a bookseller-curated list of titles in a specific theme, from Modern Classics to Science Fiction Through the Ages.  The curated lists include all the books that are important: the ones that raised questions (and sometimes eyebrows), and started conversations large and small.  But because we're Brilliant Books, we never want you to get stuck with a book you've already read or won't enjoy, so we take your personal preferences into account when choosing from our curated lists as we select a dozen titles for you to receive over the course of the year.
