Support CR, TQC

I’m going to keep this brief. Running Conversational Reading and The Quarterly Conversation takes time, energy, $$$, etc. There’s a great audience and community around these sites, and I love to do them. I have no intentions of stopping, but if you are in a position to support these sites, that would make keeping them around so much easier.

There are some really easy ways to support. Skip on down below to learn about those.

I’m hoping to make this blog in particular extra fantastic in 2017. One of the things I’m eager to do next year is lots more short interviews on the site. That’s in addition to the usual mix of lists, brief essays, recommendations, and assorted odds and ends.

Here are a few of the posts you may have enjoyed so far this year (+ the “interesting new releases” list and my rundown of favorite reads of the year):

And here are the ways to support these sites.

Number one, the easiest thing is to just do your regular Amazon shopping after visiting Amazon through my links. You get your stuff, I get a kickback, and we probably entirely kill Jeff Bezos’s razor-thin margins. Everybody wins!

Another nice thing would be to purchase one of my ebooks for yourself. You get some great reads, I get a little of your money, unbeatable deal for everyone.

Right now I’m offering a pretty sweet buy on the Latin American Mixtape and The Missing Books. That is 35,000 words for just $4.99.

You can read the whole deal right here, or just get it below.

The Missing Books——which has been featured in Literary Hub, 3 Quarks Daily, the Los Angeles Review of Books, The Millions, and many others, as well as co-signed on Michiko Kakutani’s Twitter feed——can also be purchased separately:


Kindle ($4.99)

And, of course, Paypaling me a little funds is always nice.

THE SURRENDER

The Surrender is Scott Esposito’s “collection of facts” concerning his lifelong desire to be a woman.


LADY CHATTERLEY'S BROTHER

Two long essays of 10,000 words each on sex in—and out of—literature . . .

The first essay dives in to Nicholson Baker’s “sex trilogy,” explaining just what Baker is up to here and why these books ultimately fail to be as sexy as Baker might wish.

From there the book moves on to the second essay, which explains just why Spaniard Javier Marías does right what Baker does wrong . . .


THE LATIN AMERICAN MIXTAPE

5 essays. 2 interviews.

All in all, over 25,000 words of Latin American literary goodness.

3 never-before-published essays, including “The Digression”—a 4,000-word piece on the most important digression in César Aira’s career.
