Our Holiday 2018 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 2019.

This year, we’re offering two Book a Month 2019 packages. Our bestselling Bas Bleu Book a Month package (formerly called “Bluestocking”) is an eclectic collection of top-notch fiction and nonfiction. Our Mysteries package is a spine-tingling mixture of whodunits, thrillers, and ghost stories…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.

Check out all twelve of the Bas Bleu Book a Month 2019 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 (without revealing their titles), to whet your appetite! (Can’t stand the suspense? You can uncover 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 twenty-four books are available for individual purchase, if you’d like to pick and choose for yourself. Every customer gets 10% off the Book a Month package cover price, and all Book a Month packages ship for free. Our Bas Bleu Society members receive 15% off the package cover price, as well as 15% off individual books, so you can choose from the Book a Month titles to create a customized Ship All at Once package. Plus, Society members receive free standard shipping on all books and gifts, not just Book a Month packages. Please note: We will only be able to accept orders for ship-monthly Book a Month packages through December 31, 2018, so don’t delay!
