Read More. Read Well.

It can be a challenge to make time to read in a world that never stops. Developing and maintaining the ability for deep reading isn’t something we can take for granted. Millions of Americans won’t read a single book this year. You won’t be one of them.

Unity Through Books

In Well-Read Mom, women read more and read well. We hope to deepen the awareness of meaning hidden in each woman's daily life, elevate the cultural conversation, and revitalize reading literature from books.

Find Your Community

Join an existing group, host a group, or, if you’re not ready for a small-group experience, read along with a friend. As we accompany one another, there is accountability, support, and a sense of belonging that helps to foster the habit of regular reading. Let Well-Read Mom help you form beautiful friendships.

Books That Push, Provoke, and Inspire

 We read books that encourage, enlighten, and motivate us to dive deeper into the plots of our own lives. Great writers become dear friends and we find ourselves seeing reality through their eyes, imbued with their insights.

A Plan to Help You Succeed

There is no “failing” when you join Well-Read Mom. With our tips, support, and accountability, you’ll read more and read well - whether that means finishing a heavy-hitter like Crime and Punishment, or a few pages of a classic work like To Kill a Mockingbird, we meet you where you’re at.

Testimonials

Well-Read Mom groups answer the need we all have for human companionship. They are not an extra obligation to our schedule, but an oasis. As we explore literature and discuss with others, we find an unexpected joy and unity.

Well-Read Mom takes the guesswork out of what to read and shares tips and tricks to make reading possible - even when the kids are young!

Reading has been the best thing I have invested in for myself! And the dear friends I have made along the way (in real life and in the books) have literally changed me! You can do it ladies!! Grab a book and don’t let it leave your side until it is finished!

Danielle

Thank you! I am learning so much about myself reading these books I would never choose or wouldn't dare pick up on my own.  Plus, Well-Read Mom book clubs actually discuss the book to share about one’s life and grow as a person!

Angie

In some ways, our world today makes interpersonal connections more difficult: digital connections are often artificial and lacking in depth. I wholeheartedly recommend the Well-Read Mom to those who want to go deeper.
