Dear Reader Online Book Club

I recently reviewed The Tale of Halcyon Crane [2] (which I really liked), a book I discovered via a free email book club. I joined the club several years ago and each day I receive an email with a short excerpt of the book being featured that week. It’s a great way to sample books and discover new authors—all while drinking your morning coffee.

To sign up, go to DearReader.com [3] and select which book clubs you would like to join. You can select from Fiction, Non-Fiction, Mystery, Romance, Pre-Publication, Teen, Audio Books, Thriller, Sci-Fi, Good News, and Business. For each club you join, you will get a separate email Monday through Friday with a few pages from that week’s selected book.

Suzanne Beecher is the woman behind DearReader.com and she writes a daily column that is included with each email. She writes about everything from reading to baking to her grandchildren. Plus she runs a regular contest where she bakes homemade chocolate chip cookies for one lucky winner.

Since I enjoy the book club, I thought I would pass along the info for anyone who is interested. There are often weeks where I’m just not that into any of the featured books, so I just delete the emails and wait for new books on Monday. But occasionally, like with The Tale of Halcyon Crane [4], there is a book where I can’t wait to get the next excerpt.

Is anyone else a member of the Dear Reader online book club? Have you discovered a great book this way?
