Founding of Book of the Month Club

History of the Club

Harry’s Club operates a subscription program, similar to other box subscription services. The performance of the Club is not impressive historically because the club operated through mail-order catalogs that didn’t make influence on subscribers. Members had the option decline the selection or to order a new book or merchandise instead. The absence of response was automatically deemed selection. Membership involved a “negative response” system whereby a member was shipped the monthly selection on a particular date if the selection was not declined before that date.

The Club after Orlandi’s joining


The success story of Book of the Month Club begins with joining of Blake Orlandi as its Chief Operating Officer in September 2015. The efforts made in the Club before joining of Blake were not yielding. Maybe, Blake was specifically offered this position, keeping in view his commendable performance in Bookspan, LLC, the last organization he served as Chief Operating Officer; the position was same, but more challenging in Book of the Month Club.
