The big box showed up yesterday. Just like Christmas.

Five hardback books, all published in the last three months and all costing about $5 apiece. I love the History Book Club!

The emails show up every four months or so. The Club offers four books for a dollar with the option to purchase a fifth book for half price. What’s a history teacher supposed to do?

My five?

So I pony up some loose change for shipping costs, get the great books and then . . . well . . . because paying the fifth book at half-price fulfills my contract, I cancel. I can’t be the only one.

I always feel a bit guilty but get over it once the books arrive. Not sure how they do it . . . maybe enough people hang around and order more books.

Love books and love history? The History Book Club just became your new best friend.
