In the February issue of Crochet World there is an advertisment and mail in post card for a new Annies Attic Mystery Series Book Club. First book is called "The Lady In The Attic" and the books are created especially for crafters.

Did anyone see this? Has anyone already subscribed and received the first book? What is it like?

I am interested in subscribing, but would like a little more information first and there is nothing in the new issue of the Annies Attic Catalog, their website or Crochet World's website....or at least I can't find any other information on it.

I also would like to know more about the series. All I could find is the author Tara Randel has 5 more books out already, these I found at borders and Barnes and Noble.

I saw an ad for it. But didn't know anything else.

I just called the number. Signing up for the series will begin in the middle of this month or in February. She wasn't sure if they would have a website to register or not. I'm not sure what would happen if there's a card in the magazine and someone all ready signed up.

If anyone else finds out anything, please let us know.

I found the ad in Crochet World. The first book is $6.99 (plus postage & processing). Then (unless you cancel), they will send you a mystery novel every 4 - 6 weeks for $13.99 (plus shipping and handling). So it's a book club. They do have a no obligation to buy guarantee. FYI.

Just received an e-mail. Here's the link to the info and subscribing.

Since it's a "book club" it's all paid by credit card each time. No PayPal.

If you can't do through the site (I don't have a credit card), they sent this to me:
--------

The books are only available through our club but if you are interested in joining, we can manually sign you up so that an invoice will be sent with each shipment. You can then use a check or money order to pay. If you would like us to set this up for you, please provide us with your mailing address.

If we can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Sincerely,

Customer Service
Customer_Service@AnniesMysteries.com
-----

I'm also going to try for the first 2 books or so. I like mysteries.

I would love to buy this series of books but they seem rather pricey to me after the first book. I got the ad in the mail for this.

Thanks for the info everyone! I hope I get the sample of the book in the mail - I do buy from Annies Attic, so maybe they will send it. Still thinking about subscribing, but as others have said the price is a little high after the first book. This might just have to wait until I am employed again.

Not sure where I heard about the book club but I joined. I got the first book Lady in the Attic right before I took a trip to RI and got caught in a snowstorm. It is a fasinating, fast read and I will continue with the book club. The book is enjoyable and do not take a lot of concentration to keep up with the story. Great when commuting and relaxing. Give it a try
