Our Holiday 2017 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 2018.

This year, we’re offering four 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, memoirs, and histories. Our Mysteries package is a spine-tingling mixture of whodunits and thrillers…but we’re letting you mystery mavens decide whether you want to know ahead of time which titles are included or if you want to keep them secret until they arrive on your doorstep. Finally, we’re debuting our Young Readers package this year, comprised of terrific fiction picks—both recently published titles and beloved classics—for budding bluestockings ages 9–12.

Check out all the Bluestocking, Life Stories, and Young Readers 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! (Can’t stand the suspense? You can read a full list of included titles, with reviews, at basbleu.com.)

Please note: We can’t allow substitutions for any of the titles in each package, but all forty-eight books are available for individual purchase on our website, if you’d like to pick and choose for yourself. And remember: Bas Bleu Society members get free standard shipping on all books, including the Ship Monthly and Ship All at Once Book a Month packages. Society members also receive 15% off most books, so you can choose from the individual Book a Month titles to create a customized Ship All at Once package. We will only be able to accept orders for Ship Monthly Book a Month packages through December 31, 2017.
