book of the month april guest judgeI adore (good) subscription boxes and jumped at the chance to try Book of the Month Club. After all, what could be better than a service that caters to both my subscription addiction and my even bigger addiction to books?

Three months later, I couldn’t be more pleased with the subscription’s value and the excellent customer service the company provides. I also love the thrill that comes with waiting for and finally hearing about the month’s book picks–they never disappoint!

Here are just a few things I enjoy about Book of the Month:

  1. Every month, there are five great books to choose from that are selected by a rotation of judges ranging from the Oprah Magazines’s book editor, Leigh Haber to television host, Craig Ferguson.

2. The picks have been a good mix of widely publicized and less heard of books. I’ve had the chance to discover books that wouldn’t have been in my orbit otherwise, like March’s The Profiteers by Sally Denton and January’s The Sound of Gravel by Ruth Wariner.

3. If I don’t like any of a particular month’s selections, – which hasn’t happened so far! – I can skip a month and pay nothing. I can also cancel my membership anytime.

4. By purchasing a 3-month membership with a coupon code, I’m getting beautiful hardcover books for under $10. That’s cheaper than Amazon. And right now, Book of the Month is offering 50% off a 3-month subscription to new members with code APR50! This is the best introductory deal ever! Members who use it will get 3 new hardcover books for just $7.50 each.
