We continually screen thousands of advance reading copies to pick books of literary merit and potential collectibility. After we select a title, that month's chosen author signs it, and we send a copy to you. Over the years, many of the world's most respected and best known writers have signed for our customers, including Mitch Albom, Isabel Allende, Paul Auster, Pat Conroy, Edna O'Brien, George Plimpton and Anne Rice. We may be even more proud to have showcased emerging stars like Tom Franklin, Olga Grushin, Sena Jeter Naslund and Daniel Wallace before anyone ever heard of them. We mention discovering great writers because one of the aims of this club is to add value to your book collection. This is made possible because club members always pay regular retail price for all titles. Although we cannot guarantee that the value of any of these selections will skyrocket to more than 200 times original retail price, as did a few of Pat Conroy's early titles, we can state unequivocally that every Alabama Booksmith Signed First Editions Club choice has already increased in value, some as much as 200%, and several as much as 400% to 1,000%! When you join this exclusive club, you won't pay a dime extra. In fact, it's like a discount because every year we send you an extra signed first edition FREE!. We select only the best books, but you have the option of skipping any two each year. We know there are other terrific clubs at a few fine bookstores around the country, but we invite you to give us a closer look. Because we do not concentrate on regional books and many of our top writers do not tour, we have become the fastest growing Signed First Editions Club in America. Our titles from top to bottom are of the highest quality for international literary respectability and net worth increase. We regularly receive rave reviews from members across the nation expressing those thoughts.
