BookOfTheMonth.com is a new monthly subscription service which gives people who love reading a fun and interesting way to get a brand new book each and every month, as well as a place to discuss it.
How Does It Work?
Book of the Month offers their customers a fun way to find new reading material each and every month, by reaching out to various people to act each month as Judges. These Judges are passionate readers who love finding new books and sharing them with others. Sometimes the Judges work in publishing or are writers themselves – other times, they are just lovers of literature, like the members of BookOfTheMonth.com.
Five books will be selected each and every month, and the website will feature a write up of the book by the Judge who has selected it, so members can get a sense of the type of book it is and the story that it tells. Members will read these write ups, and then choose which of the five books they would like to receive that month.
You must choose your book by the 6th of the month. If you do not, then the Book of the Month club will choose a book for you, and send it to you as a surprise selection. Once you’ve received the book and read it, you are encouraged to return to their website in order to share your thoughts and discuss them with other members of the book club.
Currently Book of the Month offers their customers three different membership plans. The first is their month-to-month plan, which is priced at $16.99 per month and can be cancelled at any time you choose without penalty.
They also offer their customers a three month plan, which is priced at $12.99 per book, for a total of $38.97 charged quarterly until you choose to cancel. Their best priced plan, however, is their annual plan which is priced at $107.88 per year, or just $8.99 per book. In addition, the website promises that shipping is always free.
The website says that if you receive a book that is damaged or defective, you have 30 days from the date of shipment in which to return the book for a replacement or for a credit; unfortunately, no refunds will be given.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to speak to their Customer Service team about their questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 888-784-2670 or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link at the bottom of the page.
Unfortunately, it does not appear that this website or company has very many reviews from their customers at this time, likely because this website is only a few months old.
However, customers can go to their website and look through all the previous selections of books to see if this is a company that would provide them with books they would like or be interested in.
In addition, they also offer good pricing and a decent Refund Policy, so customers should be willing to take a chance if they are interested, though they may want to begin with a month-to-month membership before transitioning to a yearly membership.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Actually, there is a growing popularity of companies that provide customers with new book selections and book related materials each and every month, including The Bookworm Box, LitCube, The Book Drop, and much more.
