Biz and Laura here, the founders of WellRead. For us, WellRead is all about the immeasurable power of reading and the very real ways it can make us better and more interesting people. We wanted to share that passion in a unique and modern way, one carefully curated book at a time. We wanted to help people get off their devices. We wanted to create something of value. And so WellRead was born (along with a few real babies along the way just to keep things exciting).
Laura comes from a background in book publishing and now works as a bookseller in our home town of Thirroul on the South Coast of NSW.
Biz comes from a tech background and rediscovered reading via our book club and Laura’s personal recommendations as she never quite knew what to choose. Biz is now a fully-fledged book lover.
With our powers combined we hope to have created something that brings together discovery, reading and joy. We understand just how overwhelming decision-making can be when it comes to selecting new books in a saturated market. Our proposition is that we will read mountains of books and cherry-pick the best new literary titles so that you don’t risk wasting precious time and money on duds.
We understand that being well read might mean different things to different people. For us it’s not in the quantity of books you read but in the quality. Don’t expect mass market books from us. Do expect rich reading experiences with nuanced characters and interesting premises that leave you enchanted or stirred or enlivened and always a little bit changed.
Our curatorship is geared towards stimulating the reading lives of our members. We want to keep you WellRead.
