How It Works
Becoming a Member
To join History Book Club, simply pick your 4 introductory books at the club's website, then fill in your billing and shipping information and confirm your order. As a member you will receive the free Club catalog up to 19 times a year (about every three weeks). Each issue of the catalog features the Editors' Selections – books chosen by HBC editors as the hottest reads of the moment – plus over 90 other books at savings up to 35% off publishers' prices. The catalog can be delivered to you in traditional paper format by postal mail, or you can opt to receive information about the club's offerings via e-mail – look for Communication Preference tab at the signup.
To get the editors' Featured Selection, don't do anything; it will be sent automatically unless you decline it by the designated date. The easiest way to do so -- or to order a different book -- is via your account on the club's website. Alternatively, you can return your Reply Card via regular mail or call HBC by phone. You’ll always have 10 days to decide. A shipping and processing charge (and sales tax, if applicable) is added to each order.
After the initial order of 4 books for $1 each (plus S&H), you will have the obligation to buy just one more book at HBC's discounted club price and you can take up to one year to fulfill it. Note that History Book Club offers an opportunity to make your first Club purchase at the enrollment for 50% off the publisher’s edition price (plus shipping and processing) and take care of your obligation right away.
You can cancel your membership at any time after your commitment has been fulfilled.
