The Fantastic Strangelings Book Club!
NOTE: Please read ALL of the information below about monthly billing before completing your purchase.
A special invitation from Jenny:
You asked for it. And now it’s here. Our official book club. The Fantastic Strangelings Book Club!
COME READ WITH US, YOU MAGNIFICENT MISFIT.
Have you ever wanted to join a group of well-read, like-minded weirdos who have your back and aren’t afraid to stab a bitch in the thigh with a fork if things get out of hand?
Have you yearned to join a book club because you love reading but you have misgivings because it would require you to leave your house and put on pants and talk to people in real life?
Have you ever read a book and thought, this is the best thing I’ve ever read but I’m not sure anyone else in the world will get it and then later you find someone whose favorite book is also about murderous dwarves or true stories from morticians or hilarious essays or some other thing you thought made you a total weirdo but actually made you just the right kind of weirdo?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then your presence is formally requested at the Fantastic Strangeling Book Club.
WTF is a Strangeling?
A strangeling is a word I made up to describe those people who are strange and unusual in the best possible way. They often feel like outsiders or misfits until one day they find their strange tribe of others and then realize that they are not alone. Additionally, your spellcheck will try to change it “strangling” and that actually makes things very interesting when you email your dick boss that you can’t stay late because you have work to do for your strangling club. EVERYONE WINS.
What is the Fantastic Strangeling Book Club?
It’s a monthly book selected by me delivered right to your front door.
What does it cost and what do I get?
There’s a $10 non-refundable enrollment fee to get set up. Then you’re charged $25/month (plus tax if applicable) and shipping on the 10th of every month. Shipping times will vary based on the publication date of the books chosen. All books will be brand new that month. You can cancel at any time. Once you enroll, you will receive an email from us via Zoho subscriptions allowing you to set up your card for monthly billing.
What else do I get?
Each new enrollment gets a bad-ass Nowhere Bookshop enamel pin in their first shipment. We'll also include little gifts randomly throughout the year.
What kind of books does the club read?
Check out this list of past selections.
When will the book club actually meet?
HAHAHAHAHA. Oh, you’re serious. This is a book club made by introverts for introverts so you never have to actually leave your house unless you totally want to. We’ll have a special facebook group where we can discuss the book and make friends and feel social even when we’re hermity and hopefully sometimes we’ll even be joined by the author. If you live in San Antonio I’m guessing there will be meet-up by members all the time so if you want to come out and have a drink when the store opens that will totally be amazing.
But what if I’ve already bought this month’s book?
These will all be new releases so hopefully that won’t ever happen but if for some reason you have a weird conflict (like the author looks like the girl who stole your Lisa Frank notebook in 7th grade) then contact us and we will see what we can work out.
I already have too many books.
I’m sorry. I understand these words separately but not in that order.
I can’t afford a membership and now I’m sad.
I totally get it. If you can’t afford to be an official member of the club you can still be an honorary member. I’ll be announcing the book of the month online so you can join our discussions there.
Can I buy a membership as a gift for someone else?
Yes you can! And just like your own membership you can cancel at any time so if you want to just give a membership for 3 months or a year or whatever you can do that without fear of being locked in.
So what do I do now?
Sign up below. Or if you have questions, email us at email@example.com.
Did we just become best friends?
