Make your dream library a reality!

Do you love to read? Do you collect books? Both? Maybe you simply enjoy the idea of receiving a thoughtfully chosen book of fiction every month. Join the First Editions Club and each month you will get a signed first printing of a newly published book. We have a well-qualified team of readers who select books based on literary quality and potential collectibility. Each month's selection will be signed and sent to you with a protective dust jacket cover.
