Give More, Read More

One of the best parts of giving and receiving
a gift is the element of surprise.

The same is true for books.

We open a cover and discover an unknown world, an unexpected perspective, a new understanding of how to be human. Is there a better, bigger gift to give than the pleasant anticipation of unread pages? We don’t think so.

Now imagine giving the gift of good reading to the book lover on your list all year long. We’ve created four thoughtful subscription packages we think make special, memorable gifts for readers. (And if that reader is yourself, we agree, you totally deserve it.) 




One signed, first edition collectible book
hand selected for your library each month.
Each month, members of our Signed First Club receive a signed first edition of a hardcover book hand-selected by our booksellers for its quality and its anticipated appreciation in value. We slip each volume into a protective clear Brodart cover to ensure lasting quality. This is the perfect gift for collectors and for any reader who enjoys building his or her library with unique, carefully selected books.
Previous Signed First picks include Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle; The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt; and The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht.


One debut or break-out must-read, four times a year.
 Four times a year, we send members of the Trust Fall Book Club one debut or break-out book we’ve fallen in love with. We know how easy it is to miss remarkable stories in the overwhelming presence of the thousands of books published every year. Members of the Trust Fall Book Club keep up with the best new books on the market. Each package comes with a different set of surprise goodies in addition to the book.
Our inaugural pick, shipped in September 2014, was Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, which has since been nominated for a National Book Award.
