Let's talk about why I use the Book of the Month Club to help fuel my reading habit. I love books. I'm madly, crazy, head-over-heels in love with books. Since we launched in 2007, books have been a huge part of what we do here. I think a woman who can find escape and solace in books is MUCH more likely to be a happy, healthy, well-adjusted mom. To keep my bedside stocked, I've relied on recommendations and a subscription service. Why is Book of the Month Club so famous? Because it gives moms like me the books we want when we want them.

Why I love this subscription book service
My current obsession is Well Met by Jen Deluca. It came just as I was settling into the back to school routine. It's a cute romance novel set in Maryland (my home state). It's "meet cute" book that revolves around a Renaissance Faire. And there's a brooding, hunky English teacher. It's like a Lifetime Christmas movie come to life.
I was a bookworm as a kid--that probably influenced my decision to become an English Major at Vanderbilt--now I make a living from writing. I am all about celebrating books! Did you know one of my first freelance jobs was as a Kirkus book reviewer. Yes, I used to read for a living. I would polish off 5-6 books a month (it's possible when you are pregnant and don't have other kids at home). When I started Momtrends.com, I made sure to include lots of book picks for our community--it was part of our business DNA from the beginning.
