Are you a foodie? Binging Top Chef and Chef’s Table and looking to expand into your reading? Why not try food writing?


Available four times a year, our Read It & Eat subscription box focuses on everything foodie and bookish. We believe in supporting small businesses, family businesses, and BIPOC food entrepreneurs. We also believe in giving back and our box program also has a donation component


Every box has a food-based donation component. We partner with a new Chicago non-profit for each box


Our fun bookish and foodie goodies will rotate with each box. Maybe it's a bookmark, maybe it's a tea koozy! We try to keep a few of these surprises


You will always receive a gently-used food writing book. This could be a memoir from a chef, a book on the history of a specific food (like the history of corn!), or food & travel books


There will always be something to eat! We will always partner with a small business, BIPOC owner, or family-owned business. All product partnerships are made in the USA

Persian Box

Books, food and bookish items. YES PLEASE. Kim from Bookmarks and Breadsticks has a subscription box that combines all these things. The most recent box is a special edition Persian themed dad dedicated to her dad. She takes such great care in selecting each of the items in the boxes and I love getting them! She hand wraps each of the books and the food items are always in support of a small, family-owned, or BIPOC business. She also provides a donation to a local Chicago non-profit for every box she sells. She is a small business owner with the BIGGEST heart. I really enjoyed the trail mix while reading Persepolis... who doesn't like a good snack while reading. I can't wait to see what boxes she comes up with next!

Bread Box

I’ve gotten a quick response to my questions and the box itself was well packed with a great book choice and baking supplies. I love that this box also helps support small businesses and nonprofit groups.

Lemon Box

This is the most fun subscription box I have ever subscribed to! The "Bread Box" I received in the fall was a great experience. The bread baked was super yummy and the flour sourced was a really cool business. I am working my way through the book and it is great so far.
I cannot wait to receive the lemon box!
Thanks Bookmarks & Breadsticks!
