If you already have a group registered with the site then you’ll need to login and click on the My Groups tab. This appears next to News once you’ve logged in. Once you’ve selected My Groups you’ll be taken to a page with details of your group(s). On this page you’ll find a code in an orange box, you’ll need to share this with your group members.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
