DearReader online bookclub

A DAILY DOSE OF BOOKS, COOKIES AND SURPRISES

Remember the feeling when you couldn’t stop reading a book? Now you can experience those same feelings every day.
You can sign up for one, or several book clubs, depending on what you like to read. The next business day, you will start receiving your daily “dose of a book.” On Monday we start new books in the clubs.

Each day you will receive a little more of the featured book. By the end of the week, you will have sampled 2-3 chapters, enough to know if you “just-have-to” finish the book.
