Hooray! We’re so glad you're here.
We want all women who participate in Well-Read Mom to enjoy our beautiful materials. When you join WRM, you’re not just purchasing a product, you’re joining and supporting a movement of women who want to read more and read well.
When Well-Read Mom began, we desired to create a place for women, not to escape from family life and work, but to experience a kind of leisure through friendship and literature so that women could return to their lives with a renewed vision and vigor. By reading books together, we help sustain a tradition of reading, which is a gift not only to our families but to the world.
We hope you’ll join us!

(the full list will be available under the Booklist tab on July 15th)
"Two Old Men" by Leo Tolstoy (included with membership)
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte
Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
Our Quote for the Year
"If a little flower could speak, it seems to me that it would tell us quite simply all that God has done for it, without hiding any of its gifts. It would not, under the pretext of humility, say that it was not pretty, or that it had not a sweet scent, that the sun had withered its petals, or the storm bruised its stem, if it knew that such were not the case." - St Therese de Lisieux

Our Materials have copyright
All of the Well-Read Mom materials are copyrighted. We do not allow duplication or sharing of any of the materials. Well-Read Mom requires that each woman purchase her own materials, and as such we do not permit two women sharing the Reading Companion and website usernames and passwords.
Our Funds Come From Membership Fees
Membership costs less than $5 a month. Because we are funded through membership, each woman who participates needs to officially purchase a membership. The more women that register, the more the costs of running a non-profit are spread out.
