READ IT & eAT Box™️

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.

Thank you Step Out Buffalo for such a great description above!

Donations

We believe in Doing Good by Fighting Hunger and $5.00 from every purchase is donated in conjunction with a non-profit partner to fight hunger and refill food pantries

Book

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

Food

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

Goodies

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

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Sharon D

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!
