Okay yes, we know you’re going to do the responsible thing and save most of that stimulus check money or pay off some debt. In the even that there’s some money left over take a look at a few book subscription boxes that not only ship you AMAZING books but also support owners of color.
Are you a parent who is looking to read books to your child which characters that look more like your family? The creators of Jambo Books got you!
We’re biased because we know the founder, Mel Gill, who was a guest on the Hive Buzz podcast. Mel’s intention behind this box is not only to empower women to own their sexuality in the way that comes naturally to them but to highlight romance writers of color and LGBTQ authors. Don’t snooze and get your box, which will not include a book but also a sex toy!
We heard of this subscription box through the founder of The Steam Box and absolutely loved the concept of supporting indie Black romance authors!
Brown Sugar Box was founded by Nicole W. Brown back in 2013 wanted to create a space for her daughters, Izzy and Liv to see themselves in not only literature but design pieces as well. Can we just say how each box comes with a beautiful illustration? The Brown Sugar box has options for women, teens, and children!
Back in 2016, Sanura Williams turned her love for reading into a subscription box when she noticed that writers of color were often overlooked. The motto of My Lit Box is “Color. Conversation. Community.” We’re all for that!
