Allen Public Library


Online Book Clubs

Join the Library's Online Book Clubs and start receiving chapters from popular books in your daily email. Every day, Monday through Friday, we'll send you a portion of a book that takes only five minutes to read. Each Monday we begin a new book and by Friday you will have the chance to read 2 or 3 chapters, enough to know if it's a book you want to finish. You can read a wide variety of books including fiction, nonfiction, romance, business, teen and mystery books. Just give us your email address and five minutes a day, and we'll give you an exciting world of reading.


Join the Random House First Look Book Club and discover them first! Sign up for our free email book club and receive daily excerpts from just published books. We'll bring you the best in Mystery, Suspense, Romance, Nonfiction, Literary Fiction, and more. It's like a matchmaking service for reading. Get a first look before you commit to a book!



In each AuthorBuzz note will be invitations to join contests, get free books, bookplates or bookmarks, read personal stories, and more. Authors' tour schedules will be listed so you can invite an author to speak to your book club. And if an author does phone-in discussions with book clubs that will be listed, too. We hope you come back often to meet the authors and find out what they've created just for you, dear readers.
