About the Goldsboro book clubs

I am not usually a big fan of book clubs, mainly because I like to choose my own books – but also because I don’t have space for every new debut, let alone all the extras that many of the subscription clubs send out. However, I have one exception to this rule, and that is Goldsboro’s Book of the Month Club. 

Goldsboro Books is an independent bookstore in London that specialises in first editions and signed books. From 2005 to 2019, they served a community of booklovers through a subscription book club originally called the “Book of the Month (BOTM)” service. However, in 2020 they essentially split the club and they currently offer two subscription choices – “PREM1ER” is their main club – this club includes unique, first edition, signed custom designed hardbacks in a variety of different styles and genres (although I personally think there’s a bit of a skew towards crime); and the Goldsboro Books Sci-Fi and Fantasy Fellowship (GSFF), which includes signed limited editions of new fantasy and science fiction titles. 

The books are almost always first printings of first editions. Many volumes have exclusive features like sprayed or stencilled page edges. Every book comes extremely well packaged, postage is pretty reasonable for internationals, the dust jackets are hand-covered in archival cellophane wraps by the delightful staff, and in addition to the books, subscribers also get 15% off all other book purchases from the shop and early notification of other books. 

Beautiful books review

I love the Goldsboro clubs, and highly recommend them! The books are selected by book lovers with many years of experience in the trade, and not only do they have excellent taste if you’re a reader, but many of their limited edition books have increased in value by exorbitant amounts which is also nice if you’re investing. You are notified in advance of upcoming titles, which means you can skip them if they aren’t to your liking (although many members keep them for resale, as there is often a strong market for their exclusive editions). Shipping is reasonable for internationals, but consequently untracked (depends on your location but I pay about £7 to Australia) and you should be aware that the books can arrive quite a long time after their release date, which is frustrating if it’s a title you really want to read right now.

Once the books are sold, they typically disappear from the website, so I’ve added this page for collectors who might be interested in checking out earlier offerings from the club. I have added photos for all the books from 2016 onwards, along with details about limitations and other collecting notes. I have been a member off and on for years, depending on finances and space, but I am missing a couple of the earliest books from the list – I am backfilling as I come across the missing ones , but if you’re also a long-time collector, please do feel free to suggest details of anything not yet in the list in the comments.

I should note that the club often has a waiting list, and the size of the limitations has been steadily growing over the years. These days there are currently around 2000 copies produced per title, and although this number is much smaller than competitors such as FairyLoot and Illumicrate, it does make them less exclusive/valuable than they used to be. If you are looking for backlist copies, best quality editions will be found at the Goldsboro bookshop itself if they still have them, followed by Abes (typically where collector’s offload their copies), then eBay as a last resort.
