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again for visiting Book Club Deals, and please write us with any suggestions or comments, or if you find a broken or outdated link.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 James Patterson Book Club: "Private Games is another winner for “America’s #1 storyteller” (Forbes). This time out, James Patterson takes readers on an action-packed thrill ride to London where Private, the world’s most renowned investigation firm, has been commissioned to provide security for the 2012 Olympic Games. The company boasts the smartest, fastest and most technologically advanced agents in the business, but single father of twins Peter Knight, one of their best, is handed an almost impossible situation. With the opening ceremony just hours away, a high-ranking member of the Games’ organizing committee is dead and his murder was nothing less than a deliberate, precisely calculated execution. A break in the gruesome crime comes when newspaper reporter Karen Pope receives a letter from a person who calls himself Cronus, claiming responsibility. And his aim is clear: to restore the Olympics to their ancient glory by destroying all those who have wrought dishonor through greed and corruption. As in any race, time is of the essence. Which means Peter and Karen must stop a mad, criminal genius from crossing the finish line before they do, or this Olympic Games will go down in history for record losses—of life."
