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again for visiting Book Club Deals, and please write us with any suggestions or comments, or if you find a broken or outdated link.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 Doubleday Book Club: "Beginning in 1974, gaining momentum in the 1980s and coming to a thrilling conclusion when the last three novels were published in 2003-2004, the Dark Tower epic fantasy saga stands as Stephen King’s most beguiling achievement. Now, with The Wind Through the Keyhole, King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story-within-a-story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a “skin-man,” Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter. Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Book of Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime. “A person’s never too old for stories,” he says to Bill. “Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.” Sure to captivate the avid fans of the Dark Tower epic, The Wind Through the Keyhole is also the perfect introduction to Roland’s world for those discovering the series for the first time, and a vivid reminder of the power of Stephen King’s storytelling magic."
