Best Sellers Club (Book My Favorites)

The Books You Want… Before You Know You Want Them! Check out the Fiction Department’s automatic reserve service – “Book My Favorites”. Complete a “Book My Favorites” form telling us the authors whose new books you want to read. If one of the authors releases a new hardcover fiction title, we will automatically reserve it for you. You won’t have to remember to come in or call. While we can’t guarantee how near the top of the list you’ll be each time, it’s one less thing you’ll have to do! Your membership in the “Book My Favorites” program will be effective for any new books released after we receive your request.
