Malaprop's First Editions Book Club

Our First Editions Club helps readers build their own library of collectible books. A signed first edition may be a special and valuable book for its owner, and may be highly desirable to dealers and other collectors.

Members of our First Editions Club receive a signed first edition from us each month. We choose books based on their literary content and potential future collectability, working with publishers to bring you exciting works by new voices along with literary mainstays. Selections are predominantly fiction, although from time to time we will choose a non-fiction title that we consider particularly notable. Since the start of our First Editions Book Club in 2014, selections have included Hold Still by Sally Mann, A Gambler's Anatomy by Jonathan Lethem, The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy, The Last Castle by Denise Kiernan,Varina by Charles Frazier, and The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer.

Joining the Malaprop’s First Editions Book Club is free. Your credit card is charged only when the monthly Book Club selection is shipped to you. You pay the publisher’s retail price plus a $10 shipping fee. You may avoid the shipping fee by picking up your book at Malaprop’s. If you’d like to join or have any questions about the Malaprop’s FEC, email justin@malaprops.com
