Once Upon a Book Club was created by Michelle Wolett. Always being an avid reader, and an entrepreneur, Michelle finds herself inspired by books. Once Upon a Book Club was dreamed up after recently reading “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah. She found herself in a different world when reading the book and once it was over she immediately became inspired.
What if we could create something that makes you feel like you were physically a part of that world? You become so engrossed in your book and then open a package to find an item that was just mentioned in the book. It would feel like the reader is really there! Michelle’s mind started brainstorming and she came up with the Once Upon a Book Club. It not only allows readers to fully integrate into the story but also gives them a “Book Club” community. Where they can log onto Instagram and discuss the book with other members each month. There is something magical about turning words of a book into an actual physical object. It’s like bringing the book to life.

What a cool idea!! I love that the gifts have page numbers that dictate when the gift should be opened. This seems like a fun, interactive way to bring the stories to life! Did you enjoy the book? I have not heard of it.
