Looking for Your Next Read?

Mustache Guy
We're always available to chat with you and help you find your next read, but sometimes you may not be able to speak with us in person.
We're now offering a new online service where you tell us about some books/authors you enjoyed (or hated!) and we'll email you a personalized list of suggestions for your next read.  You "mustache" us what to read next!

Take a "Byte"...

Sign up for any of the twelve free Online Book Clubs and Monday through Friday you'll receive an email with a "byte" of a chapter from a popular book. It will take you about 5 minutes to read each "byte." By the end of the week, you'll have a pretty good idea whether or not you want to read all of the book.
