RE: Re: bookclubs


I belonged to the Garden Book Club for several years a number of years ago.
Got some good books, and some not so good books that sounded good in the
description.  Finally cancelled my membership when I got really disgusted
with the shipping & handling charges, and also got far enough along to know
they were not offering books I *needed* (they count on the fact that it's
easy to order books and you're not likely to return them once you've ordered
them).  I would say it's not necessarily a bad way to start a book
collection, but it's easy to spend more than you need to.

I don't think there's any affiliation with AHS though some of their books
are offered.

Thanks so much! I am a garden book freak & wondered if anyone else has
joined the Garden & Landscape  Design book club that seems affiliated
w/AHS
