About Books and Bao

Hi, we're Jess and Will. We manage Books and Bao, a literature, travel, and culture site.

Books and Bao explores and celebrates the best of literature in translation from around the world, as well as queer fiction and books by people of colour. We publish regular articles and YouTube videos that share our love of world literature.

As digital nomads, we also take deep cultural dives into every place we visit, sharing articles and videos about food, architecture, history, art, and more.

What will you be funding?

As both a website and a YouTube channel, we put out weekly content in both written and video form, with the dual goal of educating and entertaining. Our written articles take the form of reviews, listicles, analyses, interviews, and recommendations. Our videos include frequent book reviews, Q&As, lists, personal vlogs, and artist spotlights.

Our site publishes at least one new article each week, while also consistently updating old content to keep it relevant. Our YouTube channel publishes at least two videos each week, keeping up-to-date with the best of current literature.

Managing both of these takes an increasing amount of work, and you will help to fund the production of every part of that. Your support allows us to continue putting more and more time and effort into both our written and our video content.

Why support Books and Bao on Patreon?

We do what we do because we believe, in earnest, in the wonders of world literature, in the digital nomad lifestyle, and in seeing the most meaningful parts of every country and culture. We want to make a lasting impression on the worlds of literature and travel.

We also want to be the best writers, filmmakers, and editors we can be. Your support will go a long way to support that. With your support, we can put even more time and effort into providing travel and literature content for you to read and watch.

If you need more of a reason to support us, you can check out our tiers and the rewards that they come with. Every tier provides you with something awesome that you'll get as a thank you for supporting Books and Bao!
