Hey Mama…we see you: hiding in your bathroom from the chaos outside. Your head just might explode if you hear the word “Mom” one more time, and you might actually have a heart attack if you see the mess your toddler made on the living room wall again.

We’re right there with you! But we have another reason for you to hide away in the bathroom. Summer reading!

What Is Book of the Month?

Book of the Month is a popular book club that offers exceptional books to their members at a reduced cost. They work hard to discover and bring readers hidden gems that most people have never heard of—the types of books that are truly worth reading. The books are selected with the assistance of a panel of judges that includes book bloggers, journalists, and guest judges like Whoopi Goldberg, The Today Show’s Hoda Kotb, and this month’s guest judge, Allison Williams, from the HBO comedy-drama series Girls.

All plans (1-month, 3-month, and 12-month) include 1 hardcover book of your choice each month and free shipping. On the 1st of each month the club announces its 5 new selections for the month. You have until the 6th of the month to make your selection or skip the month. That’s right–if you don’t see anything you like, you can skip the month and your membership will automatically be extended by 1-month. After you’ve selected your BOTM, you can add any 2 additional books in the club for only $9.99 each.

With their current deal, every book you buy during your first 3 months will cost only $10. Here’s how their prices compare to hardback books on Amazon:
