I have been a membar of what is now world books for about 23 years, in those days you used to have to pay to join, yes really! Remember no internet.... they paid people to come knocking doors.
Even then they made you buy so many books in a year as well. They still do this, so remember that before you join.
There is nothing wrong with the books on offer, if they turn up damaged you can send them back.
Their are some things to think about, your commitment for the first year, books are'nt cheap, can you afford it?
Remember to cancel the editors choice in time or it's automatically ordered. I still fall for this one now and then, luckily with books I can pass on as gifts to others! This can be expensive!!!
Only buy books you really want or can use as a gift, be aware given a couple of years you may see it in a bargain store.
At the same on the net they occasionally have special offers, I once bought eight books for a pound each, for the same postage as one book.
All I can say is be careful, think before you commit!
