Book Clubs Online!

With 5 minutes a day and an email address, you can join one (or more!) of DearReader’s FREE online book clubs!

Are you looking for great new authors? Looking for a great book? Would you like to sample a book before you commit to checking it out? Do you like chocolate chip cookies? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions,  you need to join one of our online book clubs.

How does it work? Every week we sample a new book. Monday through Friday, a quick 5 minute read is delivered to your email box for you to peruse with your morning coffee. At the end of Friday’s read, the ending page number is given, so when you pick up the book from the library, you know where you left off. (There is also a link on the emails to quickly and easily reserve the book from the library.)

There’s a book club for just about everyone — fiction, non-fiction, romance, mystery, science fiction, audio, business, teen, good news, horror, and pre-publication (be the first to see these soon-to-be-released books).
