One of the slightly wicked pleasures of my life is joining book clubs. Not that joining book clubs is wicked, but that I join up and reel in lots of great books for cheap with the new-member deal, knowing all along that I’ll be quitting as soon as I’ve made the one required additional purchase. And after I quit? Six months later, I’ll get an offer from the same club in the mail again and the whole cycle repeats itself.
The internet has added a new level of opportunity for acquisition-happy bibliophiles like me. Now that they operate on-line as well as via the mails, book clubs will toss out occasional special offers to get you to visit them on the web. I little over a week ago, I got an offer from Crafter’s Choice for one-time unlimited books at half off. Well, even with shipping added afterward, you pretty much can’t beat that offer.
… for $52â€”I am in heaven!
