The Mookse and the Gripes, currently with over 1,750 reviews and discussion posts, has been up and running since July 2008! As we approach the ten-year anniversary, there is no plan to stop or slow down or do anything other than, hopefully, continue to write reviews and posts about books and movies and stories, trying to implement any improvements along the way.
I have always really appreciated the support folks here have given, whether it be through comments and kind words or through donations. We’ve now created a space at Patreon where you can support the show as a regular patron if you’re inclined. No section of this website will ever require payment — it will always be completely free. And, as always, the best way to support is to read and, if you like, share your comments. However, any financial support is always greatly appreciated as well.
You’ll notice that there is now a button on the side bar that directs you to the Patreon page (or you can see it here). There I discuss the first goal ($100 per month to restart the podcast), and I have set up five reward levels, trying to have a bit of fun with book titles!
- 1Q84: $1.00 per month
- Life of Pi: $3.14 per month
- 2666: $26.66 per month
- Slaughterhouse-Five Oh!: $50 per month
- One Hundred Years of Solitude: $100 per month
Each level has a different reward for anyone who offers that support, including books, chocolate, bookish surprises, etc. Please go check them out. If you have suggestions, feel free to comment there or send me a message.
Anyway, thank you for your continued support in any way you care to render it. And thank you for your patience in reading this post related to the business side of the site!
