Now, I make no secret of the fact that I’m one of life’s cynics, and all these adverts for book clubs seem far too good to be true. Well, of course they are – you might get your first five for 25p each, but you have to agree to buy how many more? From what kind of choice? And...

I've been a member of FSF since my student days over 13 years ago and to be honest rely on it for most of my purchases. I initially joined World Books, part of Book Club Association (BCA), through a magazine advert and then, through a leaflet drop with that club, discovered FSF Book Club, also...

“Fantasy and SF book club”

published 28/05/2003

Reduced prices

Lack of stock consistency

I have been a member of this bookclub for a number of years now have found it to be reasonable service and value for money. -- Joining & Commitment -- I joined the club through a friend who was already a member - the advantage of this is that the friend will receive approximately 2 free books...

“Join the club”

published 20/04/2001

Great choice, amazing prices

You do have to comit to ordering every magazine

I expect that many of you have heard of the idea of a book club or seen the glossy adverts in the magazines offering books for 6 books for 50p, send no money now and then free gifts on top! Then you see the conditions, you have to agree to have the dreaded "Editors Choice" if you don't order a...

“Book Club mayhem”

published 21/01/2003

Good selection of books and cheaper

Editor's choice

I am an avid reader of Science fiction and Fantasy so this club definitely sounded ideal for me. All you have to do is sign up, order 4/5 books at an introductory prices and then purchase regularly from the catalogue, which is sent once every two months. Videos, special deals, collectables, were...

“Deals of Fantasy”

published 16/12/2004

VERY good introductory deals

obligatary ordering from each magazine

I first discovered about this book club on the back of the Times TV guide (the Eye). The factor that attracted my attention was the stupidly good offer..... The advertisement claimed that for joining, you could purchase "The Witches Trilogy" , "The City Watch Trilogy" and "The Rincewind Trilogy"...

An an avid Buffy fan, I joined the Fantasy and science fiction book club after a leaflet through the post, mainly for the introductory package, which, although there are different offers from time to time, was very good. I got lots of Buffy and Angel books at an unbelieavable price. It was less...

I joined the club via the net about 8 months ago. I liked the fact that you could order very easily over the web without having to make a payment up front, and there was no need for a credit card which is unfortunately the norm with this type of club, especially for me, who doesn't trust themself...

I joined this book club about 4 months ago, i mainly did it for 5 books for 50p each offer. I wasnt really too bothered about having to buy a book every month because i read quite a bit, but the main problem is you have a certain amount of time in which to order your next book and if you dont...

None really

I bought my books with the offer that saved me about £70 than if I'd bought in the shops. All the harry potter books hardback, Lord of the Rings and some others too. Anyway, you sign up for a year, promising to buy at least one book a month and you can buy on the internet or on the phone. (the...
