Join the Choir
What is the A Cappella Choir?
The A Cappella Choir is a group of some of our regular customers who pre-pay for their books and in return receive big discounts on every purchase, priority seating at all of our events and the opportunity to attend exclusive meet & greets with some of the highest-profile authors we host.
How much does it cost to join?
There is no membership fee. You join simply by setting up a pre-paid account for either $100, $500 or $1000.
For $100, you receive an automatic deposit into your account for $110 worth of A Cappella purchases (in other words, an additional 10% credit) to be used over whatever period of time you desire. There is no expiration date.
For $500, you receive $600 in your account, or an extra 20% in A Cappella purchases.
For $1000, you receive $1300 in your account, or an extra 30% in A Cappella purchases.
That's all there is to it. When your account starts running low, we send you a reminder, and if you decide to continue receiving all of the choir membership benefits, we charge you the additional amount you desire.
Not in a position to pre-pay? We understand. All of our customers are welcome to enroll in our "pay-as-you-go" rewards program, and we give you a $5 credit (or 5% of your purchase amount) every time your purchases reach $100.
Preferential seating: Any time you plan to attend one of our ticketed events, just let us know in advance, and we'll reserve you one of the best seats in the house.
Exclusive Meet & Greets: When you use your choir account to attend select author events, you are invited to join us for free at our private get-togethers either at the venue or at nearby spots like Manuel's Tavern or JavaVIno. In the past year, we've hosted private receptions with Obama White House photographer Pete Souza, New York Times writer Nathaniel Rich, US Senator Doug Jones, CBS 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley, National Book Award-winning author George Packer, and the late Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tony Horwitz.
On Wednesday, November 20, we give you the opportunity to hang out with former UN Ambassador Samantha Power before her ticketed event at the Carter Center. All members of our A Cappella Choir are invited, along with a guest, to our meet & greet with Power at Manuel's Tavern from 5:30-6:30 PM. Also, you will enjoy preferred seating at the Carter Center event. Meet the author, have your copy of "The Education of an Idealist" signed and personalized, and take a photo with her ahead of the book discussion at 7 p.m. Your purchase of "The Education of an Idealist" will be deducted out of your new Choir account, and we will have your book at the reception.
Details via this link to our Events section. Choir members are asked to call us at (404) 681-5128 or visit the store to purchase your tickets and RSVP.
Don't live in Atlanta? No problem. Just call or email anytime you'd like to place an order, charge it to your choir account and we'll ship it to you right away.
Membership in the A Cappella Choir gives you the greatest value we offer to our customers, and it's the most valuable thing our customers do to allow A Cappella to continue providing a high-quality selection of new, used, out-of-print and collectible books, great author events all over town, and access (and discounts!) to our growing array of book clubs.

“You know I love a cappella and the Choir. I try to support local and independent businesses of all kinds. And I especially love that A Cappella has a personality. You don't carry every book published, but rather have a real theme and mission which is indicated by the books and authors you support. It's similar to the difference between reading good literature and a mass market paperback novel. A bookstore with a personality is like a well-written book.” – Alice Washington, member of the A Cappella Choir since 2014
