East City Bookshop's Subscription Services
All A-Board - Includes a curated board book once per month featuring titles that introduce new concepts, animals, numbers, shapes, and colors.

Picture This - Includes one curated picture book once per month. Featuring a range of narrative and illustration styles, our selections emphasize diversity, mixing classic titles with new and emerging children’s authors. All selections make great monthly additions to a child’s reading library and become stories treasured for a lifetime. Ideal for readers aged 3-7 in mind.
Emilie's Picks - East City Bookshop’s adult buyer since 2016, Emilie has sent hundreds of books home in the right hands. Expect selections to include highly-anticipated literary fiction and memoirs that, whether they top the best-seller lists or not, reflect the exceptional and enthusiastic recommendations Emilie is known for across Capitol Hill.
Go Postal - Three cards a month, every month, for as long as you want. And no repeats, we promise. We will send along an artfully curated mix of cards from our wonderful letterpress partners, including hyper-locals like Grey Moggie and Cherry Blossom Creative, that are funny, heart-warming, or sometimes a little bit sassy. If a card made us chuckle in the back office, expect it in your mailbox.
