"Great way to keep reading regularly"

Ordering was easy, I was able to see popular picks and choose from more than just the most recent month's books for my first book. Finding something that looked interesting to me was easy and it shipped and arrived quickly within a couple days!

Finished my first book in one setting. Great shipping. Great book offers. Can’t wait until my next one.

I've been subscribed to BOTM for 9 months and absolutely love it- so much that I went from a $5 one-month starter, to a 3-month subscription, to a year long sub. I've only had one book that I just couldn't stand (and that's bound to happen no matter where I buy books from) and I've always been able to find a book from the selection of 5 that I'm interested in (my dud was an add-on from a previous month). I almost always add the 2 extra books for $9.99 each and the shipping is so fast I usually have my books the first week of the month. It's a fantastic value and I will definitely continue with this box after my subscription is over. Also - great to give as a gift!

Love this subscription. I've always been more into reading than outdoor activities and this is such an excellent subscription. You chose from 5 titles each month and it comes right to your door. Shipping is fast and I'm excited to see what next month's titles are!

I signed up for the 3 month subscription at a discount, and want to note how wonderful the customer service has been! My credit card information changed, and they emailed me, asking me what I would like to do (I had requested a couple extra books), and had very quick response times. On top of that, I called the customer service number to ask them about how to cancel, since I found no option online. The guy on the phone was super helpful and had it taken care of in like 1 minute! And the books are great value!

They make you cancel Monday - Friday 8am - 6pm by phone only. Are we in the 90's? Emailed them and they replied....just to say I need to call them. Those are the hours I work. I need to call on my lunch break to cancel a subscription? Ridiculous.

My recommendation is to not give this as a gift without checking with the recipient. I was unhappy with the selections and they wouldn't allow me to cancel the gift subscription and get a refund, so that I could use the money to buy a more suitable gift , such as Kindle Unlimited or Audible. They said I couldn't get a refund even though I received no books!!!!!

I joined BOMC assuming the books with be the same old glued spines suspended in a hard cover, but no, the bindings are like regular books now, stitched and glued. They also full size books, not the minis of yesteryear. The beauty of the club is when you see something you like in the books for the month (I saw a good one this month), you click to add it to your box. Months where there is nothing you're interested in you can skip and you are not charged until you choose a book in the future. This is a great way to run a subscription. I'm enjoying the books and now feel like they will last longer and find a great home on my bookshelf.

I absolutely love Book of the Month. I started it over a year ago now and just renewed for another year. Before Book of the Month, I felt like I was in a reading rut that lasted probably 10 years. I just couldn't figure out what I would like in the bookstore. I joined BOTM, so that I could expand my reading horizons and it has definitely done that. There are very few books I've gotten from BOTM that I haven't been in love with, but none of them have been less than 3 out of 5 stars for me. And it has introduced me to different authors that I now follow.

I love Book of the Month. The monthly book selections are excellent and the customer service is great. I had to cancel because of cost cutting plus I wanted to finish all my books first. I intend to re-subscribe, just waiting on a good promotion. Just love the smell and feel of hardbound books.
