“I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” — W.C. Fields

We may not even be halfway into the year but I’m calling it right now: the latest limited edition from Sweet Reads might be my favourite book box of 2021 (and certainly up there with one of my favourite subscription boxes period.)
