Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do your book series work?

    Many of our book offers are introductions into a series, like the Southern Living cookbook series. After your 30-day free preview period, you will be billed later for the cost of the book. You will receive additional books in the series (no more than two per year) and will receive advance notification before they are shipped to you. If you would like to receive each book, do nothing. It will be delivered right to your door. If you ever prefer not to receive a book in the series, or cancel out of the series, simply fill out the notification card as such and mail it back to us. No questions asked. There is never an obligation to buy a single book.
