I am so excited for this post. A few weeks (maybe even months) ago I spotted a new book subscription service on Twitter: WeRead Box. There are loads of book subscription services, but this one is specifically for middle-grade. I am a huge advocate for middle-grade books and reading (for anyone, of any age) so this announcement made me hugely happy.
To get them started, WeRead Box have launched a Kickstarter campaign. Here you will find all the information about the campaign and how to support it.
Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored. I offered to post about the campaign simply because I think the box looks fantastic and I am passionate about middle-grade books. I have supported the campaign using my own money. I will not be receiving any goods or services for free in exchange for this post.
A message from WeRead Box
Two Dorset-based book lovers are launching a Kickstarter for a bi-monthly book subscription box aimed at 8-12 year olds – and anyone else who loves a good story.
The box will launch in September 2019 with September and November’s boxes being exclusive to Kickstarter supporters. Following a successful campaign the boxes will be available to the general public from January 2020, with gift cards available as the perfect Christmas gift.
Each box will contain:
- A carefully selected, newly released middle grade book, in a mix of genres
- A signed bookplate
- A matching/themed bookmark
- Themed collectible pin with locking back
- WeRead Activity Booklet featuring content from WeRead members and monthly book club discussion and activity prompts
- Author introduction video and post read Q&A (provided online)
- Additional Item/s inspired by the monthly theme/book
Each box will be carefully curated in the hope that the books and box contents will appeal to readers of all genders.
WeRead Box is committed to making their packaging and products as eco-friendly as possible.
Reading for pleasure has been shown to develop, among other qualities, kindness and empathy, things our world is in definite need of. The quote above epitomises WeRead Box’s ethos.
We will package and present reading as something fun to engage in, whilst encouraging our readers to use what they’ve learned from the book in their everyday lives – all delivered directly to your door!
The Kickstarter will launch at 8am on Friday 7th June 2019 and run for 28 days. By supporting it today, you can ensure access to our exclusive 2019 boxes and maybe even snag an early bird discount https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kirstyes/weread-box.
