Book Clubs

We love our local book clubs!

Book clubs whose members agree to purchase their books at BookPeople - and let us know well ahead of time- will receive a 15% discount (if it is available - certain books are not discountable) on their book club picks.

To receive the discount, please submit your book club title using this form after reading our terms below.

We must be informed about the book choice well ahead of time and there must be several people committed to purchasing the book at BookPeople in order for the Book Club discount to apply. The more notice you give us for your book club picks, the better chance we'll be able to have them in stock for you when you need them. Our personal recommendation is one month before you intend to start reading.

There are two options for us to provide copies of your book club pick: 1) If you are willing to pre-pay for all the copies of your book, we can order them in and hold them on our pickup cart for your club members to come get at their own convenience. 2) If you cannot pre-pay for all the copies, we can order in up to 4 copies of your book and will notify the member who placed the order on the day they arrive. We will hold them behind the counter for 1 week for members to come in and purchase; after that they will be put out onto the store floor for sale. 

Book club leaders often have a general idea of how many members would like to purchase through us, but do not know for sure that their members are going to follow through on this promise. Because of this we will not order in more than 4 copies of a book without pre-payment. We want to make sure that your book club gets first pick at purchasing these books, but too often this results in a pile of books left here at the store for our staff to hand sell or return, and we’d like to make sure all our books get to good homes!

Book club members may contact us individually for their orders and we are more than happy to reserve a copy under their name instead of their book club’s name. As described above though we will only be able to offer that 15% discount if there is more than one member purchasing through us, and only if the book can be given an applicable discount.

Please note that if no one from the book club contacts us to arrange for a book club order, book club members should not be surprised if the store does not have the book on hand and when the discount is not given. 

We will shelve any unpaid books on our store floor after two notifications. All paid books will stay on our pickup cart and will get a notification once a week as a reminder.

Thank you for choosing BookPeople to supply your book club with its books!
