Signed First Club FAQ



Why should I join BookPeople's Signed First Club? 

For many book lovers, books are something to own, preserve and admire. These bibliophiles develop a passion for books, continuing to add to their ever-expanding library and becoming reluctant to part with anything on their shelves. The Signed First Club is a unique way for bibliophiles to enhance their personal library with valuable signed first editions.


What is a signed first edition? Why is it valuable? 

A first edition is the original printing of a book. First editions are distinguished from subsequent printings, as they represent the closest edition in time and intent to the author's original work. A signed first edition is a unique addition to any library, and to dealers and collectors, a signed first edition is the most desirable--and valuable--edition.


What sort of books will I receive? 

BookPeople's Signed First Club sends only fiction titles to its members.

Considering an author’s catalog of work as well as reviews or testimonials about the literary merit of each particular book, our seasoned team selects one book each month that has a high potential to increase in desirability.
