FIRST EDITIONS CLUB


The Best Year of Reading You'll Ever Have. 

If you love curling up with a great read then our First Editions Club is for you. We curate our selection of books after reading a broad array of options, ensuring that you receive a great selection each month. We choose primarily literary fiction titles with a non-fiction title every once in a while. Many of our selections have gone on to become bestsellers or to win awards.  Memberships are perfect for people who want to expand their library with hardback first edition books as well as people who love being one of the first to read a new title. 

In every box, you will also receive a few additional items in keeping with the theme of that month’s selection. For example, when we shipped Shark Heart, we also included a fun sticker and a greeting card in the box; items that were aligned with the book’s topic. 

First Editions Club is also a great gift for any family or friends who love to read.  

What kind of memberships are available? 

Members can choose one of three options: 6- or 9- month pre-paid subscriptions or an ongoing monthly subscription. You can start your subscription at any time of the year, and it will run for the duration of the months you have paid for. A First Editions Club title will be sent each month of the year for as long as your subscription is valid. 

How do I receive my books? 

When you subscribe, you can choose to pick the books up in store on their release date, or we can ship the book to you when it is released. The books are chosen such that a new title can be shipped each month, but the ship date will vary depending on each book’s release date.  

What if I don’t like the book I receive? 

You may bring the book to the bookstore or ship it back to us within two weeks, and we'll exchange it or give you store credit.
