Book-a-Month Club

Tell us what you're passionate about and love to read. Our expert booksellers will handpick your next favorite book and mail it to you. And now you have an option to add music & movies!

We select each book, DVD, or CD specifically for your recipients based on information you provide about their interests and hobbies, their favorite books, writers, literary genres, films, and music, and ship them anywhere in North America or to a government address overseas. We are also happy to correspond with the gift recipient to discuss book selections and areas of literary interest.

The Music-and-Movie Club gift program can be chosen separately or in combination with the Book-a-Month Gift Program. DVDs and CDs will be specially selected from our expertly curated in-store inventory.
