Free Books for Book Group Survey!

What are book clubs reading? How often do they meet? Do they enjoy speaking with authors? We're going to find out the answers to these questions and more with the 2009 survey --- and we'd like your help reaching out to book club members. The goal is to identify trends and topics that are of interest to book groups. The information will be shared with publishers and authors so they can provide the resources needed to enhance book group meetings and discussions. The survey is only open to readers who are in book clubs.

The survey can be found at

We estimate that the survey will take about 12-15 minutes to complete. As a token of their appreciation for filling it out, will award all participants (U.S. and Canadian residents only) with a free book, generously provided by our publishing colleagues. See the full list of 28 titles, each of which is perfect for a book group discussion, at:

We hope you will mention the survey on your site and encourage your readers who are in a book club to participate. And if you are in a book club, we hope you'll take the survey yourself.

The survey will close on April 30th, or as soon as 2,500 prizes have been awarded, so visit to answer the survey now!
