The Literary Lifestyle® is an independent web publisher and a small, woman-owned business based in the U.S.A. Inspired by public libraries, we like to keep the informational content on our website and social media platforms free and accessible to the public.

How to Support The Literary Lifestyle®

Producing content takes a lot of time and money. Some expenses we regularly pay include technical support, software subscriptions, email providers, graphic designers, web developers, web hosting, equipment, continuing education, marketing, web hosting, accounting, lawyers, public relations, and so many more.

We also take the time to read 100+ books per year, write about them, and perform all behind-the-scenes tasks necessary to maintain a safe, easy-to-use, and up-to-date website. (Read more in our Editorial Policy.)

Additionally, we face large challenges that directly impact our bottom line, such as Artificial Intelligence, which often uses our work without credit or compensation.

Readers have asked how they can support us and keep us both in business and giving back to the community through books, which is one of our core values. Here’s how.
