We've been profiling discount book clubs since 1999, and from the beginning have included on the site every known discount book club in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. That's what makes Book Club Deals unique; other book clubs directories simply link to the largest clubs such as the Doubleday Book Club and the Book-of-the-Month club. We have dozens of clubs listed here, from those that offer the latest bestsellers to specialty clubs that stick to a few subjects. We also provide as much information as you will need to make a wise decision about whether to join, including shipping costs and membership purchase requirements. Note that some clubs now offer a new book each month for a set fee (e.g., BOMC2, which charges $9.95 per month including shipping), while others send new titles automatically (e.g., Disney Book Club). "Automatic shipments," where you had to send a postcard if you didn't want the catalog's featured book, have been largely abandoned. Thanks again for visiting Book Club Deals, and please write us with any suggestions or comments, or if you find a broken or outdated link.
Description from Literary Guild Book Club: "Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett just became number five. His body was found in the basement of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he didn’t show up for trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies—Judge Fawcett and his young secretary. I did not know Judge Fawcett, but I know who killed him, and why. I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. It’s a long story.” And boom—that’s how John Grisham, America’s favorite storyteller, true master of suspense, and bestselling author of everything he writes, sets the scene for his newest tour de force. The Racketeer is filled with nonstop action as Grisham takes readers on a thrill ride that leads back to the place that made him an international success: the courtroom. And it’s one story you don’t want to miss."
