Here's a Jan. 22 e-mail from Kepler's bookstore in Menlo Park:
On June 1, 2006, Kepler's launched its Book Club program, and over 100 book clubs have registered their clubs with Kepler's. Better yet, you suggested that Kepler's devote an entire section showcasing the books being read by your book clubs. Thanks to you, this is now our most widely viewed area in the store.
Have You Signed Up Your Book Club? Kepler's invites you to register your Book Club with our store. As a registered Book Club you will receive these benefits:
• 15% discount on orders of five or more books (same title)
• Monthly email on Book Club picks, Book Club news and Recent Reviews
• We can arrange Author call-ins for your Book Club
• Your Book Club will be invited to our Seasonal Book Club Presentations, hosted by our Book Buyers and major book publishers
