How to Get Started

Step 1: Browse our Titles

  • Featured books: You'll find plenty of featured books to sample. Each listing of books is ranked by popularity, based on reported sales.
  • Search box: by title, author or publisher
  • By genre: Reader favorites include mystery, romance, biography and humor. We hope you'll be delighted by the wide variety of books in your favorite categories.

Step 2: Set up an account

When you set up your BookDaily.com account, you gain the ability to set up your own “Sample Shelf”. As you go through the site, simply click this icon and the book will be added to your queue. Each day, you will receive the first chapter of the next book in line in your Sample Shelf queue by email. This way, you can browse through the site and add as many books as you want now, and then enjoy them later when they arrive by email!

You also can sign up for genre newsletters to get updates regularly with new books in your favorite categories. (Note: If you are a subscriber to another ArcaMax Publishing Web site, you simply need to create a user name and password to access your account.)

Step 3: Read!

We invite you to make BookDaily part of your online routine. If you're interested in a book, sample it here before you spend your hard-earned money buying it. You'll find "Buy Now" links with each book to make that easy.

Be sure to check back often - we receive new samples twice a month!
