Subscribe a lucky reader—or treat yourself—with our Book-a-Month program, and each month our staff will choose a book and send it anywhere in the world. All you do is clue us in to what the recipient of your gift might like – his or her favorite authors, genres, interests, and avocations, for example – and our staff will hand-select titles to match that person’s tastes. This is an especially meaningful gift for friends and family living overseas, including diplomatic and military personnel serving in challenging locales where bookstores (and books) are few and far between.
Our Signed First Edition program is an impressive gift for readers interested in building their own libraries or simply in owning special editions of newly-released titles. Each participant receives a signed first edition, first printing of a new book each month. Writers featured in the past have included Jonathan Franzen, David McCullogh, Salman Rushdie, Tea Obreht, Ann Patchett, Michael Ondaatje, Chad Harbach, Jeffrey Eugenides, and Nicole Krauss.
