Calling all self-proclaimed bookworms and gourmet-loving foodies: Read It and Eat is the foodie bookish subscription box of your dreams.
Curated by Kim, owner and YouTuber (Booktube, it’s a thing) at Bookmarks & Breadsticks, Read It and Eat is a fun quarterly subscription box that combines two of life’s simplest pleasures— books and food. Because really, what’s better than curling up with a great book in one hand and a tasty snack in the other?
Designed with food and book-lovers in mind, Read It and Eat aims to provide a unique sensory experience and give customers the chance to try something new, all while supporting a new non-profit with each new box.
Each box is packed with unique treasures like gently-used books about any and all topics surrounding food, delicious treats to taste-test, and other bookish goodies from small, local, and BIPOC-owned businesses. And because a portion of every purchase goes towards a dedicated charity for that box, you can feel good about shopping small and giving back to the community.
