Book clubs usually categorize their collection into various genres and sub-categories. This makes it easier for you to shortlist books out of the huge database of books.
Book clubs come up with newsletters (frequency of its publication depends on the book club) which contain reviews about books. They also come up with offers like book-of-the-month and likes that help you choose books.
This actually means that you don’t have to go all the way to a book store, choose books and read book summary and reviews before buying the book. You can do that at home and furthermore, buy books at a cheaper price.
You can also restrict your membership to a particular genre for better economical results.
The flexibility of book clubs ensures that you can read as many books as you want, and not as they want to provide you.
Book clubs are associated with recent books. Library contains a warehouse of books that have been read and liked for ages. On the contrary, book clubs support the promotion of new coming up books along with the older ones, depending upon the genre you choose to read.
Book clubs grant you membership according to the genre. You cannot have the access to their complete database, until you have a premium membership.
Another personal advantage of the book club is that they set a goal for you, and you will have to finish the book in a stipulated time period. This is actually, very beneficial for you.
This does not mean that you cannot read books outside that genre. You can get a flexible membership according to the running scheme. Or you can change from one genre to another.
