The Tea Cozy Book Club

Banner for The Tea Cozy, the book group for This House of Books

Welcome to This House of Books inaugural book club! Every month in 2018 we’ll be featuring a member-owner’s new or recently published book – mostly fiction, with perhaps a few surprises. If there’s no member-owner new release, we’ll look for a great regional author to feature that month.

The list below is just the handful of 2018 new releases we’ve been able to confirm. Each month there will be an author event or a book club meeting led by This House of Books staff or board members. Timing and selections may depend on shifting publication dates, author availability, and other considerations beyond the bookstore’s control, but every month we’ll bring you a book we love, with strong local ties. If you don’t see your favorite local author on the list, please mention their name to us! The focus will be on fiction, but we may also include book club-appropriate nonfiction or poetry.

Here’s how it works: Come by the store, call 406-534-1133, or email to sign up. We’ll invoice you monthly for your book and postage if we’re mailing it to you. That’s it! Local bookvana unlocked!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Each month we’ll invoice you by email or US mail for the club pick. If you have other books on order with us, picks will be held and shipped with your other books to reduce shipping costs. You can resign any time but any books already billed will be held for you or mailed according to your directions.

How do I join?

Stop by, call, or email us. 406-534-1133,

Timing will vary depending on publication schedules, but some time during the calendar month when the book is featured.
