Apple-a-Month Club Subscriptions: New Fiction, Delivered to Your Door

A banner with the following text: "Apple-a-Month Club. New Fiction Delivered Monthly. Handpicked by Green Apple, wrapped, and shipped anywhere in the United States. Subscriptions available for three, six, or twelve months."



Did you know we offer a subscription service where we mail a new fiction book to you every month?

It’s true! It’s called the Apple-A-Month Club.

Our booksellers read through upcoming titles and pick one small-press, paperback fiction book coming out each month that we think is stellar. Our selections are eclectic, diverse, and surprising – and each comes with a review by the bookseller who picked it. (You can check out our past picks here.)

Apple-a-month subscriptions make great gifts for out-of-town friends or family.

Here's How It Works:

  • You can subscribe in 3, 6, or 12 month increments.
  • We ship the book out to you (U.S. only for now!)
  • Order by the 15th to receive the current month’s book. Otherwise, your subscription will start with the following month’s book.
  • Delivery dates will vary each month, since the books we pick publish at different times -- this is part of the fun, though.(It’s usually in the back half of the month, though, so be patient.)
  • Our team manually checks payment via square twice a week and order confirmations are only sent once we have done this, they are not instantaneous.**

The prices below include tax and shipping. If your subscription is a gift, please leave a note in the “order comments” so we can tell your recipient who got them the subscription.

Please note that 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions are non-refundable.

** Please note that we are a small staff. Please be patient with us as we work to confirm your subscription, and try to wait until a week after you complete your order to reach out to confirm that we have received it. If you have purchased, we will make sure that you or the person you are gifting a subscription to are all set to receive the next shipment of books. Thank you!

Please note: Apple a Months are not eligible for return or exchange. Part of the fun of this program is trying new types of literature that you might not be drawn to on your own. If you find that a certain pick doesn't strike your fancy we suggest donating it to a little free library, or sharing with a friend. There's always something new to discover next month!
