Signed First Editions Club

Build your book collection while supporting your local literary arts nonprofit.

Our Signed First Editions Club picks are new, hardcover fiction and nonfiction that are carefully curated by Bookmarks staff for their literary quality and potential appreciation in value. Active members enjoy many author event perks, like having first access to featured event tickets, exclusive access to signing lines, and more (please note that perks vary by event).

When you join SFEC, you are supporting Bookmarks' nonprofit outreach — including Book Build and Authors In Schools — with a portion of each monthly payment. Thank you for helping us connect the community with books and authors!

F R E Q U E N T L Y   A S K E D   Q U E S T I O N S

  1. How much does a membership cost?
    SFEC membership is free. Your credit card will be charged the first business day of each month for the retail price of the book ($28 average plus sales tax). 
    Subscriptions may be purchased for 3, 6, or 12 months, or on an ongoing basis. Prepaid subscriptions are currently available online for 3-month subscriptions; email to arrange payment for 6 or 12 month subscriptions.
  2. How do I get my book?
    Members can choose from in-store pickup (free) or shipping ($4.50 per month).
    If you choose in-store pickup, you will receive an email when your monthly book is ready for pickup. If your book is not picked up within 30 days after its release, your credit card on file will be charged for shipping and your book will be mailed to you.
  3. When will my subscription start? 
    Due to the limited nature of the Signed First Editions Club, SFEC books are ordered in limited quantities several months in advance. Although your subscription will typically start the month after you enroll, start dates are dependent on the number of members enrolled in the club and available inventory. You will receive a welcome message within a few days of enrolling that confirms your subscription and notifies you of your start date.
