BookPig Delivers Kids' Books to Your Door

A Netflix for New Reads


Your little lit lover goes through books faster than you can stock the shelves.

There’s a Pig Latin phrase for kids like her: ook bay ig pay.

The simplest way to explain BookPig is to say it’s like Netflix for pint-size page-turners. You make an online queue, books are delivered to your mailbox (free shipping!), tiny enjoys them for as long as they hold her attention, and then you send them back and get more. It’s that easy.

On-staff librarians recommend books by age, subject, grade, or gender — they even have suggestions to entice the most reluctant of readers. Best of all, there are no wait lists or late fees, and it’s always open for business.

Which should make you happier than an ig pay in ud may.

Available online at, starting at $15 per month.
