Instead I hit the snooze button three or four times before dragging myself downstairs to join the usual morning melee of lunch-making, homework-finding, sibling-bickering and out-the-door-getting before finally sitting down with my first cup of tea.

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.
