Book Of The Month Is Back
It’s pretty incredible that the Book of the Month concept has been around since 1926, and this year, the beloved institution has reinvented itself as a beautifully turned out, box-style subscription club. Five monthly selections are chosen by a panel of judges comprised of celebrated editors and authors, in addition to surprise guests like Mayim Bialik, Joel Stein, and this month’s just-announced addition, Whoopi Goldberg. And rather than send out books randomly, they let members choose their pick based on the judges’ thorough reviews and information gleaned from the online discussion board—an incredibly helpful resource whether you’re a member or not.
Needless to say, a subscription is a great (and affordable: memberships start at $39) gift for the diehard bookworm on your list.
