Support Five Books

Five Books needs your support!

We are a small team striving to bring you in-depth interviews and recommendations of the best books on every subject from absurdism to zoology. But original content like ours is expensive to produce.

Transcription, editing, web hosting, design… all of these expenses add up quickly. We estimate that each interview we publish costs us, on average, $900 to produce. We need your help to break even.

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 all the difference.

Please help us to keep our expert interviews free for all.


There are three methods of donating to Five Books. Firstly: monthly donors can join our community over at Patreon.  Those donating more than $50 a month are offered the reward of choosing the topic of a new Five Books interview.

Secondly, you might choose to make either a one-off or recurring donation through the secure card payment system below, which is powered by Stripe. You do not need to have a Stripe account to do so.
