How does the Berghahn Book Club work?
On the 1st of each month, you will receive an email highlighting new titles in your selected subjects and a curated list of backlist titles on a theme. While you can choose any titles currently available each month, these recommendations are there to help guide your selections.
If by the 15th of the month you have not placed your order, we will send you a reminder email.

When and how will I be charged?
Your credit card will be charged on approximately the 21st of month prior (i.e. May 21st for your June membership). If there’s a problem with your payment, we’ll let you know and you can update your payment method. If we’re not able to resolve a payment problem before the 31st of the month, then your membership will be automatically downgraded to the free version. You can upgrade at any time.
How are my print books shipped and how long does it take?
At check-out you will be offered a selection of shipping methods, including media mail through overnight delivery. Those are shipping times once your package leaves the warehouse. Most of our books are print-on-demand with Lightning Source and usually ship within 7-10 days. Current COVID-19 restrictions and global supply chain issues sometimes cause further delays.
Do I get anything else?
The first XX paid members will receive a free gift. We may, from time to time, offer additional incentives and rewards.
Is there a free option?
You may register for a Berghahn Book Club account that will enable you to view our suggested titles, create wish lists, and view past shopping history, but you will not receive any books or incentives.
