A Perfect Bundle

Do you want a manageable stack of like-minded books for your summer reading? We have just the thing for you: all-fiction book bundles, assembled with care by the experts in Center for the Reader. No need to wonder what you’ll read next, and forget stepping out of the hammock for another trip to the library for a bit. Simply set down the book you just finished and pluck the next one off the pile! Book bundles come with advantages other than convenience, of course: surprising book connections, introductions to authors you may have overlooked, continuity of theme, and a feeling of accomplishment when you finish the whole darn stack. Sweetening the deal is our automatic book renewal, which means there is no rush to get through it: your books will be renewed three times, unless someone else requests them. Savor each one!
