Reading is the ultimate escape into another world. Reading expands your horizons, transports you to a new realm or past time, teaches you something new, shows you a different perspective, and allows you to escape…whatever you need to escape!
Reading is the break in your otherwise busy day, a quiet moment to recharge, and a respite from your worries.
Our love of reading led to the creation of Sweet Reads Box, the ultimate “me time.” Instead of a stolen moment with a good book, we set out to build a carefully curated experience. A drink, a snack, a best-selling book, and other items built around the story’s theme. This was the foundation of building a Canada-focused book subscription box.
A comprehensive reading experience is a part of what makes Sweet Reads so unique. Not just a good book, not just a few great items, but a carefully crafted box that is an immersive experience right from the start.
Why is Reading so Magical?
- Reading allows you to travel without physically going somewhere
- Even just 6 minutes of reading decreases your stress. Imagine what an hour would do!
- Reading puts our brains into a state similar to meditation
- Reading opens our minds to new experiences
Reading can Improve the World
Reading increases our empathy by allowing us to experience events and situations from someone else’s perspective. Reading can help us process change in our lives, and understand the world in difficult times. Books have been changing the world, one reader at a time, since the invention of the printing press.
Reading Helps Our Health
Reading strengthens connections in our brains and can actually create long-term changes in the part of our brain that processes sensory information. As we age, our cognitive abilities and memory can decline. Reading can reduce this age-relative cognitive decline and keep our brains sharper!
Sweet Reads was built to bring all the best parts of reading directly to people’s homes in a carefully created book box full of fantastic items.
Reading is a passion for us and one we love to share with others. Thank you for being part of this journey!
“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.” ―William Styron
Our love of reading and our goal of creating a beautiful reading experience (and curating some much-needed “me-time”!) has led to Sweet Reads Box being voted the best book subscription boxes in Canada, and we couldn’t be happier.
