Books Review

Do you love to read but hate to spend so much money on a book that you will only read once? If so, then may be just the solution with over 228,000 books and 26,000 audio books to choose from. is a concept that reminds me of Netflix for books and I think it is a fantastic idea. You simply select the right plan for you based on the number of books that you want to have access to during a monthly/semi-monthly or yearly period as well as various pricing options. Then you are ready to start browsing which is my favorite part as I love to go through all of the book titles available. I liked that there are numerous categories so you can narrow down your selections based on your reading preference too. Add the titles that you want to read into your queue and will automatically mail titles to your doorstep.

I decided to try the children’s book membership plan in which titles are organized by age group and categories of interest. You can choose the number of books in your plan to check out at a time (I selected 6 books at a time) and then started adding books to the queue. I utilized the “recommendation” feature to help me when choosing books for my three little ones. The books were shipped two in a package and it included a pre-paid mailing envelope with each shipment so it was very easy to return the books when I was ready. I was very impressed with the “like new” condition of all the books that I received and my children and I enjoyed many stories that we may not have had the chance to read otherwise if not for I also want to mention that many of these books are not titles that I have ever seen at our large local library so it is an excellent addition to supplement our reading list. even has the option to purchase gift certificates or a gift membership so it would make an excellent gift idea for someone who loves to read. If you find a particular title that you really enjoy and don’t want to return even gives you the option to purchase the book at a discounted rate. has many different membership options to suit every need and budget so you are invited to browse your favorite books and check out the various prices and plans at the website.
