    About Close Reads Podcast

    Close Reads is a podcast for people who loves literature. We read Great Books and talk about them. More specifically we discuss great novels a little bit at a time. We are enthusiasts and we're not trying to be experts. We just love books and we love discussing them with other folks who love them, too.

    When we started the show 150+ episodes ago we figured, hey, worst case we get to talk about books we like together. That's not so bad. But it turns people like talking about books with us, too. The community on the Facebook group has shown us that. And we love, love, love being a part of the Close Reads community. We don't feel like we're talking at people, rather that we're talking with people. And it's tons of fun. But it's also tons of work and we want to be able to give some income to everyone who contributes, either on-mic or behind the scenes, including the people who help edit and produce it. We want to keep on reading and chatting and creating great content for you. But we need your help to do that. 

    Please consider partnering with us. We've got lots of great rewards to offer as thanks, including Close Reads swag and bonus episodes and all sorts of awesome things like that. 

    Thanks for listening, thanks for reading.
