As a small added benefit, you'll also have priority when it comes to book questions. I often get questions from readers about the books I've reviewed (why did X happen? what happened to X character? -- etc), which I try to answer the best I can. I will likely try to answer your question either way if I'm able, but Novel patrons will have priority for their book questions.
I love books and have always loved creating fun, interesting, helpful content. I've set up this Patreon to be able to support the creation of freely accessible book-related content for casual readers, book lovers and book bloggers alike.
Why I Created this Patreon
As the site has grown, so have the many ideas I have for it and the funds required to keep it going. I love this site and want to keep expanding it. I'd greatly appreciate your help and support to be able to do so!
How does this support The Bibliofile?
By supporting this Patreon, you'll be helping to sponsor things like:
- Hosting for the website (Google Cloud Platform)
- Software licensing (Adobe, etc.)
- Website services (Mailchimp for the mailing list, optimization tools)
- Wordpress Plugins (Image Optimization, Page Caching, etc.)
- Image/Font Licensing (Used for graphics on the site)
- Books! I buy almost all of the books I read. There are plenty of book reviewers that get tons of free books, but my main priority is to help readers find the right books for them to read. I'm not interested in acting as a free publicity arm for publishers, so I often shy away from "working" with publicists (and getting free books) because there's pressure to write a positive review. In short, my allegiance is always going to be to the readers, and I find that buying books outright is often the best way to maintain that trust.
Of course, if you like The Bibliofile but you can't support the site financially, thanks for taking the time to read this anyway. I'm always open to feedback, so feel free to reach out at [email protected] with any questions, comments or suggestions. Happy reading!
