Just as I was about to lob today's junk mail into the dark corner to which it belongs, a bright page full of cookbooks caught my eye. It turned out to be from one of those standard "Buy lots for $1 now and sign over your firstborn for life" type book clubs. I normally don't even look at these, but well, what can I say, it's for cookbooks (someone must have told them I'm under-the-weather and feeling a little vulnerable today).

I'm sorely tempted, as there are some decent books I'd love to get my hands on, but I'm very wary of these things- they just scream scam to me.

The deal in this particular case, as far as I can make out, is that you get 3 books for $1 each immediately, and then have to buy 2 more at regular prices over the next year. Plus shipping and handling for everything.

My question is, has anyone else heard of these people, and ever tried them? In other words, someone please stop me....

Sincerely, Sucker-In-Waiting
