Reading in Heels has just launched with the aim of putting the pleasure back into reading, taking the guesswork out of finding books you actually want to read, and helping women to read more, more often. It’s about being so absorbed by a book that you totally forget about your phone. About slowing down. Parcels and real post.
Reading in Heels is a monthly subscription service for intelligent, stylish, modern women, allowing members to discover the latest in contemporary literary fiction, alongside our Expert Edit of beauty and lifestyle treats from favourite independent and luxury brands. It’s a lovely monthly me-time treat, or the perfect gift for friends or family.
Each month, Reading in Heels’ Editor handpicks a book our members will love – think modern, literary fiction; fantastic novels you won’t want to put down, and the latest books that everyone’s going to be talking about.
Subscribers receive a beautiful box containing a brand new book, along with a few extra surprises to enjoy whilst reading.
Positive discrimination and promoting female writers and women in business is very important to us – at least 50 per cent of the brands featured in every box are female-founded.
Founders, Alice Revel and Caroline Finn have worked together on online women’s magazine Running in Heels. As founder and editor-in-chief of Running in Heels, Alice is someone who loves books and beauty products in equal measure, while retail and ecommerce expert Caroline has extensive experience with beauty and lifestyle brands – and she’s passionate about reading too.
They spotted a gap in the market – there are already book subscription services but nothing like Reading in Heels, which offers a really special mix of reading and me-time treats.
Everyone wants to read more – it’s become something of an obligation (who doesn’t say ‘I should read more’) but with our ever shorter attention spans, it’s actually hard to put your phone down, turn off the TV, stop scrolling and sit down with a book. Reading in Heels creates a whole slow, relaxed, mindful me-time experience that makes it pleasurable to enjoy me-time, switch off, slow down and just enjoy reading.
