I have removed all my Books from my "Book Shelf" but I don't know how to Close my Account. If it is in the Rules, I am not having any luck finding it. Could someone Help me, Please?

How do I cancel or suspend my membership?

A simple message to us with the request to close the account is all that is needed.

  • There is no minimum number of swaps necessary before an account can be closed.
  • You can easily suspend your account temporarily by putting your bookshelf on hold.
    • This will not put club emails on hold
    • This will not affect ongoing (already active) transactions 
    • This will not affect Box-O-Books; Box-O-Books needs to be paused separately.

The reason a member cannot close his or her account automatically is because we have to check for outstanding requests. It would be unfair to other members to leave items incomplete. Once a member requests cancellation, we close the account and handle outstanding items.

If you close your account and wish to have it reopened later, just send us another message.
