Sweet Reads Box January 2021 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

I received January’s Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

You know Sweet Reads Box is one of my favourite subscription boxes so I’m so excited to see what this year will bring! Voted Canada’s best book box, each month it delivers a newly released novel, something tasty to eat and drink while enjoying the book and a few bookish items (bookmarks, mugs, journals, cozy socks and the like) tied to the story.

I received The Cook’s Box from Sweet Reads Box in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

A baker bakes 73,247 baguettes in a year and sells each for $2.73. What does he make?
