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."

We often hear that customers come to Green Apple to find the book they're looking for but stay for hours to peruse the books we recommend. But if you live far away, have schedules that inhibit your ability to read hundreds of handwritten index cards before selecting your next book, or are looking for a perfect perennial gift for the bibliophile in your life: The Apple-a-Month Club is here for you.

Here's how it works: We pore over stacks of soon-to-be-released fiction to find the paperback original we're most excited about. The only guiding policy is that every book we pick will be new, fiction and what we think will be appealing to all types of readers. Why take the risk? Well, we're hoping you might discover something you never would have picked up elsewhere. You can then look forward to getting a new book with a handwritten note about why we love it in the mail once a month. As publication dates vary, so will the delivery date -- that's part of the fun.
