Past Apple-a-Month Club Selections

Our Apple-a-Month Club selections have very few guidelines; new, paperback fiction is the main criteria, and we endeavor to share something you might not pick up or hear about anywhere else. Other than that, you can expect a variety of literary genres and styles. To get a loose idea of the types of books you'll get with a subscription, check out these archives of past picks.
