I’ve got a couple questions that I’ll hopefully have an answer for by this weekend. Stay tuned for those. In the meantime I thought I’d share a little secret for all you avid readers of history. Its called the History Book Club. Now, I know what you’re all thinking, “Great, he’s trying to rope me into the Columbia House of academia. How many free books does he get if I sign my life away?” But its not like that, honest. If you sign up for the History Book Club you get four books, any in their catalog, for $1 each (plus S&H). That’s right! Just $1 each (plus S&H)! But wait, if you buy a fifth book, you get it at 50% off (plus S&H). But that’s not all! You’ll also receive this handsome attache’ absolutely free! And there’s nothing more to buy…ever! That’s right folks, you get four books from our extensive catalog for $1 each, 50% off the regular club price of a fifth book, and a free attache’ tote (plus S&H) with nothing more to buy….ever!
This is a really good deal. The only catch is that you need to be sure to cancel the monthly pick or it will show up in your mailbox and you’ll be charged. But since there’s nothing more to buy….ever! you can simply cancel your membership as soon as your books arrive. I have been a member about four seperate times and have built quite a library, much of which I have not yet read. I’ve become something of a book fiend which is ironic since in my younger days I was a master of passing classes without having read the material. Weird how things work out.
Anyway, if you’re looking to expand your own library the History Book Club is a good way to do it. If you need any suggestions on good history related books, I might have a few ideas. Give me a topic, I’ll give you a book. In case you were wondering, the four books I ordered this last time were as follows:
