I am so excited that Book of the Month club has finally come to Canada! Just to be clear upfront, I am not sponsored or affiliated with BOTM in any way, just happy to have it as another option to buy books. For over a year now, I’ve been jealous every single time I saw the vloggers I follow talking about the BOTM options and showing off the books because there was always at least one that I wanted to get. This year, we finally got the announcement that they were opening up to shipping to Canada as well, and I immediately signed up to be notified when! The only real concern I had was what the cots was going to be since new hardcovers are already so expensive, and so is shipping. Luckily, they seem to have settled on a pretty reasonable price. The selection of the month (a choice of 1 of 5 options) is around $25, and you also have the option to add up to two more books as add-ons for $15 each. Best of all, shipping is free! Even though $25 is still a tiny bit more than I like to pay for my books, it’s much less expensive than buying the same hardcover book in stores, and when you factor in the add-ons, an order of 3 books averages out to about $18 per book, which is very reasonable! It also sometimes gives early access to upcoming releases, which means I don’t have to wait 6 months to a year for the books to drop in price elsewhere to be more affordable. Even if I had the money for it, I just don’t want to pay $35 – $40 for a single book, which is what they are going for on Amazon and Indigo. In October, I was offered an early access deal to get any book I wanted for just $5 so I quickly took advantage of that, followed by two monthly boxes so far. However, there are still so many books they have that I want to get! I will definitely be taking advantage of the add-ons as much as I can. For this week’s freebie topic, I decided to make it a bit of a wishlist and show some of the books they have on BOTM that I’m hoping to get as soon as I can!
