I super love the Reader's Digest. I grew up borrowing my mom's collection for the Laughter the Best Medicine section... Then All in a Day's Work, Life's Like That, Word Power, Quotable Quotes --- until I started reading the more lengthy sections. It has taught me to love reading and I am glad that over the years they did not disappoint in giving me information that made me more educated about different cultures all around the world, religion, psychology, etiquette --- you name it - Reader's Digest got it.

They always go out of their way to feature great life stories from which you could learn a lot from. One issue of the Reader's Digest could keep me entertained for a whole day. It really lives up to its name. It's a shame that the more technology advances, we people have become more engrossed in other leisure activities far less worth the while than reading a good book such as this.

I am subscribed for Reader's Digest. A week ago you told me you will send a subscription copy and free gifts along with a Reader's Digest copy. Still now I have not received any copies. Probably your courier man has not identified my address properly. In case of I not receiving any copies I would consider this Reader's Digest subscription and sweepstakes as fake and I am may lodge a complaint against this. Please be honest and sincerely give my free gifts as I was ready to pay my 761 Rs cash.

I got a phone call from a sales person in Reader's digest and agreed to pay an amount of AUD 60 (approx) on my credit card for a year's subscription and a book. Not having received a single issue of the magazine for 3 months after that, I left a complaint with their customer service online. They emailed me, promising to re-send issues of the magazine and the book. No magazine issues of the book appeared in the mail for another 2 months, so I lodged another complaint, getting no reply this time. Another month later, I disputed the transaction on my credit card and successfully reversed it.

Last week (nearly 9 months after the phone call), I got a threatening email from "Black Collection Services" Sydney informing me of my debt to Reader's Digest Australia of an amount of AUD 49.95. I was directed to pay or suffer loss of credit rating via default registered with Veda Advantage. The email from "Black Collection" had my postal address wrong. This made me realize that they might have mailed magazine issues to the wrong address for a few months until I disputed the transaction, following which they probably stopped. The person who called me offering promotional rate for 1 yr subscription obviously took down my postal address all wrong, which is not my problem.

I lodged another complaint with their customer service explaining the history of the case, demanding they withdraw the collection notice. Now their customer service department appears to ignore the full content of my messages lodged online and annoyingly keeps asking me for proof of payment made. I would strongly advise anyone against dealing with Reader's Digest as their customer service is dumb and callous, resorting to unfriendly tactics when the problem arose from their own mishandling.

I paid for a year's subscription for Reader's Digest a few months ago for the first time, and still have not received an issue. My credit card has been charged months ago. Any word when I will receive them?

I have subscribed for this ** Reader's Digest book few months back. My subscription id is : **. They had taken all my yearly subscription charges online. They never send copies until and unless you send tons of reminders. Sometimes I even came across things like "despite of continuous reminders they never respond to your emails." But no ** from Reader's Digest had sent me copies so far.

My Grandmother subscribed to this magazine for many years and as a child I loved reading. I was always excited to visit my grandparents house and could not wait to read the latest edition of RD. It was a wonderful experience. Fast forward to a few years ago when she had a stroke. Her subscription ran out and then the bullying began. She began receiving "Overdue" notices and threats to turn her over to "Collections". She was almost in tears when she showed me the "Collection Notices" and asked me what she should do. I returned ALL of the correspondence with a note to cancel the subscription. It continued for quite a while until they finally stopped. I believe based on her subscription period they knew she was in the later stages of her life and susceptible to these attacks. Never again will they receive money from me or my family!

I started the select editions in 2013 and in one summer I read 22 books which included some ancient condensed novels. Last year not as much as time DID not allow. I look forward to again this year spending time on our patio swing reading with great enjoyment and sipping limeade. Thank you Reader's Digest.

I paid for a one year subscription to Reader's Digest for 2014 for my sister, intending it to be just for that year, no mention of renewal anywhere. This week (end March 2015) I received a "Gift Subscription Renewal - Payment Reminder", saying they had already sent the second copy of this year's subscription to my sister. The letter had large red writing and a red banner across and was obviously intended to resemble an overdue payment request. Very poor tactics by Reader's Digest, intending that their demographic of mainly older people would be taken in easily by the appearance of an overdue payment demand, and of course until I checked, I couldn't remember whether I had started that subscription for this year or last - it was a Christmas gift. No more transactions from me, gift or otherwise, with Reader's Digest for such underhand marketing.

I'm getting annoyed with these people with high prices with books, dvds and cds. The highest price for 1 of the books is $69.96, the highest dvd price I've got is $79.98. Today, I got the demand for payment letter bill showing I owe them $317.41 that's including the administration fee is turns to $10. They also give you stuff you didn't order and also demand payment. I've seen people on YouTube going downhill from Reader's Digest bills giving us letters and repeating their crap. It's just a big rip off, it's like they don't care. If they did, then why are we pay so much for their stuff. These people should be stopped.

Reader's Digest Condensed Book Series to Get Wider Distribution

The Reader’s Guild has signed an exclusive, long-term licensing agreement to market and publish Reader’s Digest's Condensed Book series as Reader’s Digest Classic Editions. Initially distributed four times a year and, most recently, bi-monthly, the titles,previously available only through direct mail, will now be offered to the general trade.

Each volume includes four or five bestselling novels by prominent authors such as John Steinbeck, William Faulkner, Agatha Christie, Michael Crichton, and John Grisham. The Reader's Digest Classic Editions will be released as e-books, Kindle Singles, paperback, trade paperback, and hardcover editions. The agreement covers approximately 1,500 books and Reader's Guild has the rights to publish new versions of condensed books two years after their original release date.

“Since 1950, Reader’s Digest has published hundreds of condensed titles and we are delighted to work with The Reader’s Guild to give a whole new generation of readers an opportunity to enjoy first-class condensations of award-winning titles, many of which are currently out-of-print,” said Harold Clarke, president and publisher, Reader’s Digest Books and Home Entertainment.

But even when one has a trade edition of a book of fiction, the odds are still very high against it being worth much of anything. This applies to the majority of hardcover fiction but there are many specific exceptions. Readers' Digest condensed books are not collectible.

Reader's Digest Condensed Books

Reader's Digest Condensed Books was a series of hardcover anthology collections, published by the American general interest monthly family magazine Reader's Digest and distributed by direct mail. Most volumes contained five (although a considerable minority consisted of three, four, or six) current best-selling novels and nonfiction books which were abridged (or "condensed") specifically for Reader's Digest.[1][2] The series was published from 1950 until 1997, when it was renamed Reader's Digest Select Editions.[3]

The series was popular; a 1987 New York Times article estimated annual sales of 10 million copies.[4] Despite this popularity, old copies are notoriously difficult to sell.[5][6]

For much of their publication schedule, the volumes were issued four times each year. Each year the company produced a Volume 1 (winter), Volume 2 (spring), Volume 3 (summer), and Volume 4 (autumn). In later years they added a Volumes 5, and then a Volume 6, going to a bi-monthly schedule by the early 1990s. The series was produced for 47 years (1950–1997), until being renamed Reader's Digest Select Editions. (Note: UK editions seem to have been somewhat different from USA editions. Pre-1992 Canadian editions also contain different titles.)

Occasional books such as The Leopard (Summer 1960), The Days Were Too Short (Autumn 1960), and Papillon (Autumn 1970) were not published in English originally but were abridgments of translations. In some cases, advanced copies of the hardcover edition were printed in paperback form. In a few cases, new editions of older works (Up from Slavery, published originally in 1901 (Autumn 1960), A Roving Commission: My Early Life, published originally in 1930 (Autumn 1951) or Goodbye Mr. Chips, published originally in 1934 (Summer 1961)) were also among the condensed selections.
