Our Holiday 2016 catalog is arriving in mailboxes any minute now, and among the amazing gifts packed into its pages you’ll find our Book a Month packages for the coming year! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Bas Bleu’s Book a Month program, the premise is simple: Treat your favorite bibliophile (who may be you!) to an entire year’s worth of terrific books, shipped either all at once or on a monthly basis throughout 2017.

life-stories-book-a-month-2017For the second year, we’re offering not one, but three Book a Month packages. Our bestselling Bluestocking Book a Month package is an eclectic collection of top-notch fiction and nonfiction, while the Life Stories package is filled with fascinating biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. But this year we’re offering a twist on our Mysteries package! Yes, we’ve compiled another spine-tingling mixture of whodunits and thrillers…but we’re keeping their titles and authors secret until they arrive on your doorstep! After all, mystery mavens hate to have the surprise spoiled too early, right?

Mysteries Book a Month 2017Each month of 2017 here at the Bluestocking Salon, we’ll offer discussion questions, interviews, or other supplemental information about that month’s Bluestocking Book a Month selection—for book clubs as well as thoughtful individual readers. It’s the ultimate literary gift that keeps giving all year round! Check out all the Bluestocking and Life Stories Book a Month titles below; you can hover your mouse over the cover image for a teaser, or click to read the full description on our website. And for the Mysteries package, we’re offering you teasers about each novel, to whet your appetite!

Please note: We can’t allow substitutions for any of the titles in each package, but all of the books from the Bluestocking and Life Stories packages are available for individual purchase, if you’d like to pick and choose for yourself. We will only be able to accept orders for ship-monthly Book a Month packages through December 25, 2016.
