Support Five Books

We need your support!

Five Books is a small team striving to bring you recommendations of the best books on every subject. We don’t just provide lists, we also do in-depth interviews, normally in person or via Zoom (and very occasionally via email).

Each interview takes a lot of time to put together. We look through the books, think about the topic, and then do the interview. Afterwards, there’s the transcription and editing, web hosting, design…the expenses add up quickly. We estimate that each interview we publish costs us, on average, $900 to produce. We need your help to keep this project viable.

So if you enjoy reading interviews on Five Books, please consider making a one-off contribution, or even a small regular donation. Even $2 a month from you makes a big difference.
