Thanks for keeping us alive! You get a personal thank you mention on every episode in the name of your choice.


So, if you would rather be addressed as, "Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of her name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons," instead of, "Sarah," just select this reward and let us know what your fancy name is.

*We will read almost anything. However, to protect ourselves in the event someone recommends something so heinous that we cannot conceive of reading it, we retain the right to refuse a patron request.

**We don't have all of the old books we've read, so please be ready with a back-up choice in case we no longer have your primary choice. If you really, really, really want us to sign one we no longer have we can buy a new copy but obviously it won't be the actual one read for the show.

About Terrible Book Club

We are Paris and Chris of the Terrible Book Club and we read and review books for you!

We're just hoping to recoup the cost of buying books and hosting the podcast each month. We're not actually looking to make a profit. If we do eventually - great! - but that's not the intent.
Any money raised over our basic costs will go back into the podcast. With your contributions, we've been able to cover our hosting and book costs in addition to subscribing to an audio library and buying plug-ins that have increased the quality of the show. In the future, we hope to be able to afford to subscribe to a transcription service and create patron merch. Essentially, the more money you donate to us, the more we are indebted to read terrible books and produce better episodes for you. Haven't you ever wanted your own comedy servants?

The Terrible Book Club podcast will always be free to listen to, but if you donate money to the show, you will be eligible for...

Special Rewards, such as:
  • $1/month: Being thanked by name on each episode!
  • $5/month: Access to all video and audio bonus content! A dramatic reading of a favorite scene from a past book!
  • $10/month: Choosing a book we read once/year! A signed copy of one of the actual terrible books that we've read! 
Exclusive Video and Audio Bonus Content at the $5/month tier or higher includes:
  • Chris & Paris commenting on films and TV shows related to books we've read on the podcast, such as the full length Maradonia film, the entire first Season of the Sword of Truth TV series, and the Canadian Left Behind movie!
  • Terriblo's Torture, a video series where Chris and Paris are forced to create a summary, title, or short passage from a made-up book on the spot. If you've ever seen the Scenes from a Hat segment on Whose Line Is It Anyway? it's like that but with 4 hats.
  • Chris & Paris playing Elden Ring for hours and hours...and hours. Seriously, there's a lot of this footage.

If we've ever made you laugh or given you something to think about, please consider donating.

Thank you for your consideration and may you never read another terrible book,
Paris & Chris

Goals
$176.10 of $200 per month
With $200/month, we can afford:
  • To subscribe to a reliable transcription service to accommodate those who are hard-of-hearing or deaf who still want to enjoy TBC!
