Are you a fan of Chris Meadows’s work? Now you can show it with tips for him personally—we will not take a cut. The following or something shorter will appear at the end of every Meadows post. Read on, and you’ll see why he deserves your support. We’ll work out similar arrangements for other TeleRead writers if they want them. TeleRead, in case you’re interested, is the world’s oldest ebook news and views site.

Chris’s ebook-related news and advice, often inspiring additional information from other members of the TeleRead community in our comments area, can be a lifesaver—read one reader’s thanks.  He also does his best, in industry commentaries, to look out for the interests of ebook lovers and writers alike. Chris has been into ebooks since the 1990s and has been with TeleRead for about a decade (read more about Chris on our About Page).

Let’s incentivize him, especially since we’re no longer bothering with advertising in this challenging business climate. We run TeleRead as a public service, not a profit-driven venture. TeleRead is the world’s oldest site offering news and views on ebooks and related topics, and we’d like to survive another two decades.

Again, however, your donations to Chris will be just that—strictly his money; not a penny will go to TeleRead. Yes, I’ve been skeptical of donations. Prove me wrong! – David Rothman, Editor, TeleRead.

Update: I’ve asked Chris to check to make sure that PayPay won’t deduct from blogger tips, as opposed to donations for nonprofits. As I see it, at least, these should be personal transactions treated like any others.
