It's time to get your reading glasses on people – make the HoneyKids Book Club your page-turning BFF!
It’s no secret the HoneyKids crew loves a good book. It’s our fave way to spend time on our lunch break at work or unwind in the evenings once the kids are in bed. And this means we’re always on the prowl for the best reads. In fact, we spend a good 10–15 minutes every morning just talking about the books we’ve read! Which got us thinking: Why keep all this book goodness to ourselves? Why not share it with people who love books as much as we do or who want to start reading more? Let us introduce to you… The HoneyKids Book Club for fellow book lovers in Singapore!
The HoneyKids Book Club: every genre, every topic, every taste
The best thing about our HoneyKids Book Club is getting suggestions on new reads that have been loved by our team every month. Plus, you know it’ll be a great read when it’s recommended by us!

Why reading’s good for you
If you aren’t much of a reader, well, perhaps it’s time you got started. There’s a good reason why ever since you were a little kid, parents, teachers and other adults have been telling you how important reading is – that’s because it is! It’s a great way to get that me-time in, plus delving into a great read really whisks you away from the world of dirty nappies and biting toddlers. The best part? It also reduces stress levels and makes you really THINK. Aaand if you’ve been wanting to get your kids to start reading, it’s always best to lead by example, right?
How to get started
Picking a good book – a book that really piques your interest – is a good way to start. Whether you’re into serial killers (no judging!), fluffy romances or dig a book that’s being turned into a movie, you won’t want to read a book – much less finish it – unless it’s something you’re really into. Also, it’s nice to read something that doesn’t involve dinosaurs or fairies every once in a while! Not into lugging heavy books around? There’s an app for that – Kobo or the Kindle app. What’s more, they’re free, and there are also heaps of cheap-as-chips e-books to get downloading!
