What’s a Book Party and Why Should I Host One?

Usborne Books & More Party

Wondering what a book party is? Here’s a quick rundown of what it is and how it works.

What is a Book Party?

Book parties are (typically virtual) get togethers where you invite your friends and an expert shares all about some incredible books for your kiddos. Your guests then have the opportunity to purchase books for their little readers, and you get free books based on your party’s sales!

The party is super fun (an evening with friends and books, anyone?!) and very low-key. When you choose to book a party with me (your friendly book expert), my goal is first and foremost to make the event unforgettable and full of laughter. I’m here to be your party planner and virtual bookshop clerk, and my role is to serve you and your guests. But on top of ensuring a good time, my goal is to help you get a ton of new books for your little readers (for free)!

Why Should I Host a Book Party?

Book parties are the easiest way to grow your home library for free. As a host, you’ll receive free books based on your party’s sales – the more sales, the more books. While the rewards differ slightly from month to month, almost all of my party hosts walk away with at least $150 in free and discounted books from their party!

And when I say that it’s easy, I mean it. All you have to do is invite your friends and attend the party. I’ll do the rest! Easy peasy.

Here’s what two of my party hosts have to say about hosting:

“Hosting a book bash is literally the easiest thing you can do!!! So much fun as well!”

“Hosting is SO easy and fun! I have hosted quite a few book parties and it’s a way to earn free books for your family! Think about it!”

Isn’t It Too Good to Be True?

When I first heard about book parties and how many books a friend of mine had gotten from hosting hers, I was amazed. And now I genuinely want everyone to know how easy it is to host a party and fill your home with books for free.

The party book rewards through Usborne Books & More (UBAM) are seriously so generous. It makes people wonder, “isn’t this too good to be true?” But here’s the deal… Because books are sold directly to customers through parties, UBAM doesn’t have to pay big bookstores to hold and sell their books, which means they’re able to use those savings to spoil party hosts with free books! It’s a win-win for everyone involved!

So… how does $150 in free and severely discounted books sound to you?! Click the button below to claim your party date! (I only host 6 parties a month, so book your date today to save your spot!)

How Does It Work?

Okay, so you’ve read this far and want to host a party, but you want a few more details. I totally get it. I’m the kind of gal who wants alllll the info up front.

So here’s how it will work:

  1. You’ll pick a date!
  2. I’ll send you an email confirmation with some wording that you can use to invite your guests.
  3. You’ll start sending invites!
  4. I’ll set up your virtual party (on Facebook or another platform, if preferred), which will officially open a week before your party date.
  5. During the week leading up to the party, I’ll create custom book recommendation lists for your guests based on their readers’ ages and interests.
  6. During the party, there will be a series of 10 posts, sharing literacy tips and introducing your guests to different types of books for their little readers. Guests will comment and engage with the posts for a chance to win some free books!
  7. After the party, I’ll follow up with guests and help them pick out the perfect books for their kids.
  8. You’ll choose the books you want with all of your party rewards, and then wait excitedly for them to arrive!!!

So, in summary, you invite the guests, I share some awesome books, and you pick out tons of free books for your kids! Aaah, so exciting!


Who can host a book party?

Anyone! Moms, grandmas, aunts, teachers, seriously anyone. If there’s a little reader in your life that could benefit from some books, hosting a party is 100% for you!

Do I have to live near you to host a book party?

You can host a book party from anywhere in the world! Because the party is virtual, you and your friends can participate from anywhere with an internet connection.

I’ve attended similar parties and thought they were a little too pushy. Is this like that?

Nope, nope, and nope. I don’t do pushy. It makes me squirmy when other people are pushy towards me and I don’t ever want to be that person for others. As your virtual bookshop clerk, my role is to help you and your guests find books your readers will love. And if your guests decide now’s not the right time, no worries. I’m here when/if they’re ready.
