Kaylamburson I can't wait to read Recursion. I loved his first book, Dark Matter! 1mo

Trying this whole #botm phenom out. Don‘t let me down, y‘all! #botmbuddyreads

One of my favorite and most coveted Christmas presents, but one problem... I forgot how awful I am at choosing just one book! Suggestions? Night Tiger? Golden State? Or Golden Child?

So I took a little break, but #BOTM sucked me back in last month with Kingsolver and Moriarty. I was pretty pleased with this month's selections and had to do some serious research (😏) before making my choice. I'm back to growing my TBR pile and it feels so good.

Final selections in place. Now how long will it take me to clear the #BOTMBacklog for good?

TrishB Are you just reading these? 9mo
Ashley_Nicoletto You have some good ones waiting here for you. 9mo
Crazeedi Just a fine book stack! 9mo

MicheleinPhilly @TrishB Of course not! I am not a “planned” reader. That Halloween stack I made a few months ago? Still sitting in the same spot on the desk. Unread. 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @Ashley_Nicoletto Including one from you! 😉 9mo
TrishB Phew....thought something had happened... 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @TrishB Oh no. Just finally cancelled my Book of the Month Club subscription. I still have plenty of “dealers” for my vice. 😉 9mo
Reviewsbylola Mines probably about that size too! 9mo
TrishB Important sources! 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @Reviewsbylola Didn‘t you just rejoin??? 9mo
Reviewsbylola Yes. 😆😆 I still have a backlog tho. 9mo
Librarybelle Most of mine are still unread, and yet I keep getting more! 9mo
LeahBergen Are we starting a betting pool? I‘ll say 3 years. 😆 9mo
LauraBeth I‘m *considering* taking 2019 to read the books that I own. Considering being the key word here. 8mo
MicheleinPhilly @LauraBeth That‘s pretty much my eternal New Year‘s resolution. 8mo
LauraBeth @MicheleinPhilly I say we do it so that when we visit each other we can bring each other sacks of books we‘ve already read. If we make the resolution a selfish one - we can succeed! 😂 8mo
MicheleinPhilly 🤔🤔🤔 @LauraBeth (edited) 8mo
eanderson I feel envious of your backlog.... mine is half my height. I‘m not tall so it works in my favor. But still!!! 😳 8mo
Megabooks At least you‘ve got some good ones! 8mo
Cinfhen It‘s a mighty pretty shelf💜🙌🏻 8mo

Yay, it's #BoTM time again! I've skipped several months this year, but this one was a no-brainer!

Reviewsbylola This is an amazing month—they‘re selections are awesome! 9mo
LittlePixels @Reviewsbylola I know! Both of these books were already on my must-read list, so (since I have a BoTM gift sub) this just saved me from having to go out and buy them. I'm so excited! 9mo

Ashley_Nicoletto You‘re like the fourth person I‘ve seen say this. What is going on with BOTM that they‘ve lost so much love? 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @Ashley_Nicoletto I know for me it has been a selection issue. They used to offer big ticket books that were already on my radar. Now every month it seems like it‘s all debut authors (which I‘m not necessarily opposed to) and crappy thrillers. Their customer service skills are seriously lacking too. 9mo
catiewithac I‘m cancelling once my box arrives 9mo

Samplergal I don‘t particularly like thrillers and certainly don‘t purchase them. I‘ve skipped a couple months rethinking my membership. I would do A Ladder to the Sky, but already have an ARC. ( which has not been read yet!) 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @catiewithac I was so afraid that they were going to charge me immediately for a whole additional year so I just pulled the plug. 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @Samplergal I like thrillers - good thrillers - but I also like variety. How many months in a row of “unreliable female narrator” books does one really need? 9mo
TheBookStacker Once I use up my credits I‘m cancelling. Just hasn‘t been as many good selections. I will give them until January to change since that‘s when my credits run out. 9mo
Mdargusch I need to rejoin this month because I want 3 of those books! But I‘m holding out for “please come back and we will give you a free book” offer. 🤣 9mo
JamieArc I wonder if the people who‘ve been with BOTM for a while realize that you can do Month to month. Towards the end of the month, I get charged for one month. If I don‘t use that credit then I don‘t get charged the next time. I can skip as often as I like, which I often do. For me, there‘s no reason to cancel this way 🤷🏻‍♀️ 9mo
eanderson I have one credit left and I plan on cancelling. I wish they‘d go back to how they were 2 years ago. (edited) 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @JamieArc I do know about month to month but it was cheaper per unit to buy a full year up front. 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @eanderson I left detailed feedback when I cancelled. But I don‘t think I‘m terribly influential. ☺️ 9mo
LittlePixels This is my first year with them (I got a gift sub for Christmas last year). I've been happy with their customer service, but seriously disappointed with the quality of the books. The physical quality. Twice they've actually fallen apart or had pages not bound on arrival. Plus, they just feel like crappy quality overall. The selection has been hit-or-miss, imo. I've skipped several months, then gotten more than one other months. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 9mo
MicheleinPhilly @LittlePixels I‘ve been fortunate not to experience the physical quality issues but I‘ve seen that complaint from numerous people. 9mo
Megabooks I read every book last year (but The English Wife), and cancelled in June. The covers are crappy, the selections are mostly crappy, and the service/delivery is crappy. Welcome to the dark side. 8mo

This is the first time I‘ve ever skipped a month with #BOTM None of the selections this month seem even a little interesting to me so see y‘all back here next month same place same time ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

JackOBotts I skipped, too. Second month in a row. November Road and The Mermaid & Mrs. Hancock intrigued me, but I have such a backlog of books (#goodproblems), that I didn‘t feel compelled to make a pick. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 11mo
lele1432 November Road is the only one I'm remotely interested in, but I don't want to use a credit just because. I may end up skipping as well. 11mo
emilyhaldi I‘m not the least bit interested in any of them@either 😕 11mo

I used my last three credits and I'm done with BOTM. When I started, I couldn't wait to see the selections and could rarely choose only one book. Not so much anymore. 😕

Joy0201 I‘m going to use mine up and cancel as well. Just not the same anymore. 11mo
emilyhaldi Uggghhhh I have one credit left that just won't die!! 😂 I haven't been interested in their offerings in 3 months and this month was no different 🙄 11mo
Erinreadsthebooks @Joy0201 and @emilyhaldi I feel ya. I'm not even really interested in the books I chose. I looked at reviews and picked some books people seemed to like. Then I promptly canceled 😏🤷🏼‍♀️ 11mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage I didn‘t stay subscribed for long ... 12mo
Lisaw13 A few months ago I used up the rest of my credits and then canceled - just didn't seem worth it anymore. 12mo

4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage do you know if there is a way to get a refund for credits unused? 12mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft Don‘t know—I was month-to-month. Someone here will know!! 12mo
InLibrisVeritas I only kept mine for about 4 months before I unsubscribed. I wanted to love it but it just didn't work out 12mo
Reviewsbylola I would too. I am so glad that I was able to use my credits and cancel. If I had 8 credits I would be pissed!! Are you also accumulating a credit every month? 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @InLibrisVeritas that‘s how long I have been subscribed. The book selection doesn‘t seem to be meshing with my reading tastes. 12mo
ferskner I don't get the Litsy love for BOTM. Although I'm a librarian so....? #checkthemoutinstead 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @Reviewsbylola no further accumulation, I bought a year‘s subscription. Oops. 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @ferskner One of the main reasons I signed up is because my library is currently closed for at least a year for major renovations! I thought this might be a good filler. I usually am a big library user! (edited) 12mo
Ashley_Nicoletto @ferskner I cancelled my BOTM and have been able to check every single one I wanted out from my library. Best decision ever. 12mo
ferskner @4thhouseontheleft Oh that's hard! Need any ARCs? I have lots 12mo
ferskner @Ashley_Nicoletto woohoo! That's what I like to hear! (I love buying books, of course - I'm just really picky about owning them. More picky than BOTM would allow.) 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @ferskner At last count, I have at least 200 books in my home library that I haven‘t read yet. 😂 199 after I finish 12mo
Flaneurette I‘ve had 2 credits to use and I‘ve skipped every month since March. I just want to use them up so I can quit. I‘m totally with you on the reading taste not matching up! 12mo
AmyG I have 1 credit...and I am going to use it up and cancel. I haven‘t read so many of my choices. 12mo
Reviewsbylola Oh ok, well that‘s better!! I just used my last credit before my annual subscription ran out. I chose to cancel. My second account though was month to month. I had two credits and then I would accumulate one every month so it was like a mad dash to use up all my credits so I could cancel. If you cancel with any credits remaining, you forfeit those credits. Their CS was less than helpful about this. They told me to just use my remaining credits the 12mo
Reviewsbylola Next month and cancel. Which like ok that would be fine except then I get charged for another credit the week before the selection. I pointed that out so they “graciously” agreed to skip a month on my billing so I could use my remaining credits without adding an additional one. I ended up forcing myself to choose two books that month just so I could use the credits and close the account. 12mo
Reviewsbylola That‘s when I knew I would be canceling my main account when I could. What‘s sad is a year ago it wasn‘t even a struggle to use credits!! There were months I got all five selections between my multiple accounts. I‘m so over them though. /rant over. 😂😂😂 12mo
Laughterhp I cancelled in April after 2 years and it was honestly the best decision I made! I wasn‘t reading the books and I wasn‘t liking the changes they were making. 12mo
emilyhaldi This is a total bummer and seems to be a pretty overwhelming response to recent changes made. It's so crazy that a year ago we were struggling to narrow down our picks each month!!! @Reviewsbylola 12mo
NovelGirl82 I'm about to cancel mine, as well. I'm just going to save the money to spend on books I've been waiting on & borrow the rest from the library if I want to read them. Between my branches here & having access to Houston's through overdrive, I can normally get my hands on the ones that I want relatively quickly. 12mo
JPeterson I had canceled about a year ago, but signed back on when Circe came around. Now I‘m ready to cancel again. It just feels so underwhelming every month. 12mo
kspenmoll I cancelled mine shortly after things changed up. 12mo

I skipped this month. The first time I‘ve ever skipped, but none of the books called to me. Not to worry, though - I kinda went crazy over the holiday weekend and ordered lots of books through Book Outlet, Book Depository and ThriftBooks! #BOTM

I signed up for Book of the Month last Tuesday. How long once you get a tracking number does it usually take to actually ship? It‘s said waiting on pick up since Wednesday.

Redwritinghood It takes a few days. Not sure how many but I know nothing happens for awhile after I get my tracking number. 1y
BeautyAndABook Obviously I have no patience lol. Thanks for answering though. 🙂 1y

Bostonmomx2 @mindea that is crazy isn't it? I wonder if it was called something else at some point. 2y

BookishJess @MinDea I think there was a period of time when they weren't active but it was revived as a subscription box a few years ago at least! 2y
