I recently got an email that the Book of the Month Club was running a special during April for a 3 month membership for 50% off. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this site, it is a subscription site that offers 5 hot new reads each month to pick from. A normal 3 month subscription is $45 so the 50% off price was $22.50, which includes 3 books that I get to pick and shipping. Not only that but the Book of the Month site will also ship you an additional two books from either the current month or prior month’s listings for only $10 each. So for April I picked up The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney and No One Knows by J.T. Ellison (both April picks) plus The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee (a March pick).
These were all already on my TBR list and I’ve heard a lot of good things about them so I can’t wait to read them. Amazon retail prices of these books as of today totaled $52.97 (I’m not even considering cover price totaling $81 because no one pays cover price for hardcovers). Considering I paid $20 for the two extra books and 1/3 of my subscription cost ($7.50) I ended up with a fairly good deal! Plus each book comes with a cute knick-knack. The Queen of the Night came with a temporary tattoo and the April books came with something else. I haven’t had a chance to inspect it closely enough to decide what it is yet but its just nice to get something extra with the book!
If anyone else is interested, here is a link for signing up for the club at 50% off a 3 month subscription. Happy reading!!
