Online Book Clubs - Dear Reader

Like to sample before you commit to a book? This service emails a 5-minute portion of a book each day. Read 2-3 chapters during the week and decide if you want to check the book out of the library. Every Monday we start new books. You choose which club to join from Fiction, Non-Fiction, Teen, Business, Romance, Good News, Science Fiction, Mystery, Horror, Audio, and Pre-Publication. This database is provided through funding from the Ocean County Library.
