“My name is Zadie Smith, and I am a 38-year-old pathological reader. I would like to say in my defense that I don’t really get the appeal of YOLO. I live many times over. Hypothetical, subterranean lives that run beneath the relative tedium of my own and have the power to occasionally penetrate or even derail it. I find it hard to name the one book that was so damn delightful it changed my life. The truth is, they have all changed my life, every single one of them—even the ones I hated. Books are my version of ‘experiences.’”

originpallettown asked: Why did you take down your Patreon account? So many youtubers use that as another means of income, why is it different when its a booktuber? It's not like people were pressured or forced to donate, those who want to will and those who don't want to wont it's that simple.
From what I’ve observed, the atmosphere in BookTube isn’t quite ready for Patreon-type-things. I’d compare it to where the YT community as a whole was when people started getting brand deals.
Agreed, I definitely wasn’t pressuring or coercing anyone to give.
I will link to Hank’s video that he made when Subbable was launch as to why this kind of funding is better than advertisements. Just think about it, y’all.
